A little bit of spice, smokey bacon and creamy paleo ranch are tied together with the crisp and crunchy shredded lettuce. That’s right we put lettuce in our omelette.

Ingredients

  • 2 chicken breasts
  • 2 tbsp lemon juice
  • 2 tbsp hot sauce paleo approved, like Franks Red Hot Original sauce
  • 1 tsp garlic powder
  • 4 strips bacon
  • 4 eggs
  • 1 avocado
  • 1 cup shredded lettuce
  • ½ tsp salt
  • ¼ tsp pepper
  • 4 tbsp primal desire ranch dressing
  • 1 tbsp diced chives
  • 12 cherry tomatoes

Instructions

  • Cut chicken breasts into strips and put into a bowl.
  • Add lemon juice, hot sauce and garlic powder, stir and let sit a few minutes.
  • Preheat oven to 350°F.
  • Place chicken breast strips on a baking sheet and cover with bacon strips (then the bacon fat flavours those chicken breasts, YUM!)
  • Bake 35-45 min depending on how well you like your bacon cooked. Alternately you can pan fry chicken and bacon together if in a hurry.
  • Once cooked, chop the chicken and bacon into bite size chunks.
  • Break eggs into a bowl, season with salt and pepper and whisk until they are a uniform texture.
  • Pour half the mixture into a pan over medium to medium-high heat, cook 2-4 min (until mostly solid but before overcooked) and carefully flip, cooking until the second side is slightly browned. Repeat with the remainder of the mixture (for second omelette).
  • Spread half the bacon and chicken over one half of each of the omelette bases.
  • Top with ½ avocado, ½ cup shredded lettuce and drizzle 2 tbsp ranch over top.
  • Fold egg over and garnish with diced chives and cherry tomatoes.
  • Add additional hot sauce if you like it spicy!

Notes

Prepare the chicken at least the night before so you can just heat it up for a quick breakfast.
