Chicken Noodle Omelet: Perfect for Breakfast or Dinner!

When 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!
