  3. Heat the teaspoon of oil in a non-stick or cast-iron skillet on high. Swirl the oil around so that it completely coats the bottom of the pan.

  5. Using a rubber spatula pull the egg from the outside edge into the center, exposing parts of the pan so the egg can cook completely. Then leave the omelette alone for another minute or two. Remember to cook it on low heat so that it does not brown too much.

  6. Warm the chicken slightly in the microwave or on the stovetop before adding it to the omelet—it won’t get hot enough to completely heat up all of the chicken.

  7. Add the shredded chicken, shredded gruyere, and chopped spinach to half of the omelet. Cook for 30 seconds.

  8. Fold the other half of the omelet over the top of the filling. Cook for another 30 seconds to a minute, or until the cheese has melted.

  9. Serve with a small spinach salad and some crusty bread.

  • We used gruyere cheese, but you could really use any cheese you have on hand.
  • Feel free to add some finely chopped herbs, like chives and parsley.
  • You can also mix it up by adding a little cream cheese to the rotisserie chicken for a little extra indulgence.
  • Use a rotisserie chicken or make your own shredded chicken. You can make it in the Instant Pot, the slow cooker, or just grill or boil the chicken. Then simply shred it with a couple of forks. Refrigerate or freeze what you aren’t going to use for the omelet. It’s a great addition to salads, soups, and casseroles.
  • Do not add any ingredients to the eggs except bits of chopped-up butter! Milk will make the omelet watery and thin.
