Chicken Scrambled Egg Recipe

Tuscan Chicken Scramble

Restaurant Breakfast Recipe

This Chicken Scrambled Egg Recipe is called a "Tuscan Chicken Scramble" simply because it contains spinach, basil, tomatoes, garlic and Mozzarella cheese - all ingredients used frequently in that area.

If you are a "carb-cutter," this recipe is also for you. Just do not serve the chicken scramble with potatoes. Think fruit.

Preparation time: 10 minutes. Servings: 2


  • 1 1/2 teaspoon each of butter and vegetable oil
  • 3 ounces chopped, cooked, seasoned chicken
  • 1/2 cup fresh chopped spinach
  • 1 tablespoon fresh chopped basil
  • 1 teaspoon minced garlic
  • 3 eggs
  • 2 tablespoons diced tomatoes
  • 1/4 cup grated Mozzarella cheese



  • Heat butter and oil over low heat in a 7-8 inch egg pan
  • While the pan is heating, whip the eggs in a small bowl with a wire whip until blended but not frothy
  • When the fat is hot enough to sizzle a drop of water, add chicken, spinach, basil and garlic and sauté’ briefly, stirring or shaking the pan often (do not burn garlic)
  • Pour in the eggs and cook over low heat, stirring occasionally with a rubber spatula but do not over stir or allow the eggs to brown
  • Remove the eggs from the heat when they are “set” but still soft and moist
  • Add tomatoes and top with cheese and cover briefly until cheese is melted
  • Divide in the pan and slide onto plates for two servings or plate whole for one serving


That's it! Great job!

Enjoy your scrambled egg recipe and the company of those you share it with!
