Chicken-Spinach Frittata

As you can tell, I am not a very good photographer. It tastes a lot better than it looks! Frittatas are perfect for leftovers and are so easy to make. All you need is meat, veggies, eggs and milk. And if you feel like adding more calories, some cheese. How simple does that sound?

For this I used:
1 cup of leftover shredded Chicken
1/2 cup of Frozen Bell peppers (Red, Yellow and Green)
A couple big handfuls of Chopped Spinach
1/3 cup chopped Onions
3-4 eggs (Egg Beaters work great)
1/2 cup skim milk
Salt and Pepper to taste
Oil and Pam cooking spray

First, preset oven to broil. Heat skillet to Medium Heat.
Second, take a Tbsp of oil and saute your peppers and onions in a skillet. Add your chicken and your spinach. While you wait for you spinach to cook down, mix eggs, milk, salt and pepper.
Third, quickly spray the edges of your skillet with Pam and then pour in your egg mixture just until everything is barely covered. Don't stir. Add shredded cheese on top if desired.
Fourth, Leave on stove-top to cook for about 5 mins. Once the edges start to form, then place it in your oven so the top will finish cooking. Watch it carefully, you don't want it to burn. It shouldn't take more than 2-3 mins to finish cooking. Give it a good shake before you take it out to make sure the center is cooked.

Some serve it out of the pan. I like to flip mine out on a dish.
Serves: 5-6 Bandster portions

TIPS:
If you are cooking for one or two, use a smaller pan
Leftovers can be freezed
Get Creative! You can make it with ANYTHING!

Make it a Muffin Tin Meal!-Try baking in muffin tins for already portioned meals!
