French omelette (or omelet) is the perfect dish for breakfast and brunch or, in my case, for a lovely lazy dinner.

Filled with cheese or herbs, the omelette is a classic served at various bistros across France. 

I choose to put my spin on this one. Or to be honest I just find the perfect way to use some chicken breast roast leftovers. No worries, the dish still has class and style. After all, this is why the French Cuisine is so amazing, right? Creative cooks, creative chefs and creativity in the kitchen. Or a way to use your leftovers instead of throwing them away. Oh well, I really liked my omelette made in this way. Give it a try, I'm sure you'll like it too!

Ingredients:

  • 4 medium eggs

  • 6 tablespoons Gruyere cheese shredded – you can use other type of cheese if you don't find Gruyere. Emmental, Beaufort or Comte are great substitutes.

  • 4 tablespoon cold butter

  • Salt

  • Ground black pepper

  • 10 tablespoons chicken breast roast finely chopped

Whisk the eggs with salt, pepper and one tablespoon of butter.

Add the remaining butter into the pan and mix it until it melts.

Now, it's your choice, you can make two omelettes or one big omelette. I decided to make one big omelette so I poured all 4 eggs into the skillet pan. If you choose to make two omelettes, pour only half of the eggs and repeat the process.

Make sure the eggs are spread even into the pan. When the omelette is 80% cooked, after 3-4 minutes depending how firm you like the eggs, turn the omelette on the other side with a spatula. Add cheese, chicken roast and cover with a lid. Let the omelette on the heat for 2 more minutes.

Remove the omelette from the skillet. You can roll the omelette in the traditional tube shape.

Serve the omelette with a simple, fresh salad and bread croutons.
