Step 1

Dice chicken into small pieces, and slice mushrooms.

Step 2

Heat butter in skillet over medium-high heat and sauté chicken, onion and mushroom for 3 minutes

Step 3

Add 3 Tbsp. ketchup, chicken broth, salt, pepper and continue to cook until liquid evaporates.

Step 4

Add cooked warm rice to the skillet and mix well. Remove the chicken rice from the pan and set aside.

Step 5

In a bowl, mix eggs and milk.

Step 6

Wipe skillet and heat 1 Tbsp. oil over medium heat, making sure entire surface of pan is coated. Pour half of egg mixture into the pan.

Step 7

Move a spatula through the egg mixture in circular motion until the egg is half way cooked through.

Step 8

Place half of chicken rice in the center of the egg mixture and turn the heat off.

Step 9

Tilt the skillet to the side a bit and fold one side of egg over the rice. Push and slide omelet to the other side of the skillet.

Step 10

When the omelet reaches the edge of the skillet, flip it out onto a serving plate so the sides of the egg folds under the rice.

Step 11

If necessary use a paper towel to correct the shape. Repeat steps 6-11 to make another omelet.

Step 12

Combine ketchup and Worcestershire sauce in a small bowl and pour over each omelet.

Tips & Variations

No special items needed.


Okay, this was unusual and we both liked it. I had just enough catsup for the inside, but had to use chili sauce for the topping. I was lazy and didn't look up the rice weight conversion on my usual site because it takes a few minutes. So I searched it out and got a way, way, way wrong answer! But my hubby was happy about the extra rice he gets to take to work. Don't be Diana. Look the weight up ahead of time. And make this recipe. :-)
