Crispy Chicken Omelette

Eating delicious food is among the best parts of my day. So is watching Minnesota Vikings football. For this reason, I continue to put together these recipe posts. In this installment of the Gameday Goods recipes, I focus on the crispy chicken omelette.


  • Crispy Chicken
  • Two eggs
  • Cheese
  • Pepper and Parsley

Step 1: Prepare the Chicken and Eggs

No need to overthink this one: a frozen chicken burger will do just fine. Get it onto a cookie sheet – preferably with a silpat – and get it into the oven. Mine needed to be cooked at 425F for around 20 minutes, but check the packaging for yours.

While the chicken is cooking, get your eggs ready. This just involves getting a couple eggs cracked into a bowl. Toss on some freshly-ground pepper if you go for that sort of thing. Remember: being a great offensive lineman is about having good feet; being a great egg beater is about having a good wrist. It’s all in the wrist.

Step 2: Prepare Omelette Toppings

Things move quickly once the omelette gets in a heated cast iron pan. As a result, you’re going to want to have everything prepared ahead of time. Kirk Cousins prepares for games by watching hours of film. You should prepare for omelette making – the average person’s closest thing to getting into a big game – by getting the ingredients fully prepared before pouring the eggs into the pan.

For me, this preparation involved slicing my chicken with a sharp knife and unwrapping the cheese. Ensure the chicken is sufficiently crispy; it’s hard to have a crispy chicken omelette if the chicken is lousy. If you want to use real cheese, you’d be well-served by grating.

Step 3: Cook Your Omelette

I flipped my eggs once they were most firm along the bottom. Take a look at the eggs before flipping:

Once flipped, I tossed on my cheese and chicken:

From there, it’s really just a matter of folding and serving. Toss on some parsley if you’re looking for style points and something green.

If omelettes aren’t your thing, give our breakfast sandwiches a try.
