Low Fat Chicken Omelet

Use Egg Whites Only

Low Fat & Low Carb Omelet


This restaurant recipe for a Low Fat Chicken Omelet is low fat primarily because the omelet is made only with egg whites (no yolks).

But you should also know it is a low carb recipe as well! Just substitute tomato slices or some fresh fruit for potatoes.



Eggs provide protein, vitamin A, riboflavin and other vitamins and minerals. But did you know that one egg white contains about 15 calories and no fat? The yolk contains all the fat - and some carbs.

That is why some restaurant guests order omelets made only from the egg whites.

Separating egg yolks from the egg whites is easy enough and you probably know how to do it. But there is another way to do the job you may not have thought about. Check out the video below.

Low Carb Restaurant Breakfast Recipe


Preparation time: 10 minutes. Servings: 2


 

Ingredients:

  • Non-fat spray such as Pam to coat the pan
  • 6 ounces egg whites
  • Freshly ground pepper to taste
  • 3 ounces warm, cooked, diced chicken, divided
  • 2-3 tablespoons warm, cooked, chopped broccoli
  • 2-3 tablespoons seeded, diced tomatoes
  • 1 ounce Fat Free Mozzarella cheese, optional
  • Salsa, optional

 

Instructions:

  • Heat a 7-10 inch egg pan
  • While the pan is heating, beat egg whites and pepper in a mixing bowl until blended but not frothy
  • Spray the pan once with vegetable oil and then spray again
  • When the pan is hot enough to sizzle a drop of water, add the egg whites
  • Let the eggs sit until they begin to cook around the edges
  • With a spatula lift edges and tip pan so egg mixture runs underneath
  • Continue this process until the top is thickened and very little liquid egg remains
  • Spoon the broccoli and half of the cooked chicken across the bottom of the omelet
  • Add the fat free mozzarella cheese if you’d like
  • Fold omelet in half and top with tomato and other half of chicken
  • Slide onto plate. If serving two, cut in half before sliding onto plates
  • Top with salsa, if desired
