Chicken Noodle Omelet: Perfect for Breakfast or Dinner!

By Kelsey Banfield |

Chicken Noodle OmeletWhen I saw this recipe the other day I almost died. How perfect, I thought, an omelet that mimics the taste of chicken noodle soup, but in a whole new form! I immediately set to work making it for my daughter (it is sooo easy) and we enjoyed it for dinner on a night when my husband was traveling for work. It was a total blast to eat, we kept giggling and saying “Is this soup, or eggs?” You can imagine the peels of laughter that followed from my toddler. As the mom I have to say I was completely thrilled. The omelet was a cinch to make and was a total hit in our house. On days when I don’t have time to cook this will be the perfect go-to high protein low-fat meal for both of us this summer. And, as the title suggests, I might just eat it for breakfast, too!

    could this also be done on a griddle?

  2. Cookin' Canuck says:

    This reminds me of the Torta di Pasta that I make with leftover spaghetti. The kids always love it!

  3. Heather says:

    I made this tonight and I really didn’t like it. I guess I just couldn’t get past the texture.

  4. Angela W. says:

    Did I miss a step? When do you add the noodle mixture to the eggs??

  5. Kelsey says:

    Hi Angela, Yes, in Step 2 you add the cooked noodles to the eggs. Enjoy!

  6. Carla says:

    When do you put the flavoring packet from noodles in or don’t you?

  7. Eric says:

    Carla, I think you add the flavoring packet in Step 1, when cooking the noodles according to package directions.

  8. Kelsey says:

    Carla – yes, use the flavoring packet!

  9. James says:

    This turned out great at my house. I love noodles and omelets—what a great way to combine the two!

    I am so glad James!
