TOTAL TIME :35minutes35minutes
  • 1/2 teaspoon sea salt
  • 1 tablespoon grass-fed butter (sub extra virgin olive oil)
  • 2 teaspoons extra-virgin olive oil
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1 8 ounce bag organic baby spinach
  • 1/2 cup pesto (store bought or homemade)
  • 1 1/2 cups shredded rotisserie chicken
  • 1/4 cup full fat coconut milk
  • 6 large eggs (preferably organic, or local and free-range)
  1. Preheat oven to 375 F. In a large mixing bowl, whisk eggs, coconut milk and sea salt. Until fully incorporated.
  2. Heat a large cast-iron or nonstick skillet to medium-high heat. Add butter and olive oil. When butter has melted, add garlic and stir for 30 seconds until fragrant. Add spinach, lower to medium heat and allow spinach to wilt. You can place a lid on the skillet to help steam spinach more quickly.
  3. When spinach has wilted, add pesto and shredded chicken. Stir to incorporate. Add eggs and coconut milk and stir carefully until evenly distributed.
  4. Place skillet in the oven, uncovered, and bake for 20-25 minutes or until the top is set and the edges are golden brown, but it doesn't look dry. Remove and allow to cool 10 minutes before slicing and serving. Optional || Serve with sliced avocado and chopped roasted pistachios :).

    I just can’t do spinach, and I have really tried. . . .would broccoli be a good substitute or would it have too much water in it?

    • I haven’t tested it but I think it would be a good sub and taste great!

  • Jenny Fanning

    What are your thoughts on substituting 3 of the full eggs for 6 egg whites? 3 full eggs plus 6 egg whites for the egg portion?

      Hi! I haven’t tried it so I’m not sure, but I don’t see why it wouldn’t work!
