  • Serves: 4
  • Prep: 2mins
  • Cook: 20mins

Indulge in this delightful oriental omelette, with tender chicken breasts seasoned with the spicy warmth of ginger, crunchy sweet carrots, coriander and garlic punch for extra flavour and long lasting satisfaction.

Ingredients

  • 8 large British Lion eggs
  • 3tbsp chopped fresh coriander
  • 2 skinless, boneless chicken breasts
  • 2 tbsp vegetable oil
  • 2.5cm (1-inch) piece root ginger, grated
  • 1 garlic clove, crushed
  • 8 spring onions, sliced
  • 2 carrots, peeled and cut into thin sticks
  • 75g (2 3/4 oz) beansprouts
  • 1tbsp dark soy sauce
  • 1tsp caster sugar

Method

  1. Beat the eggs together with the coriander and set aside.
  2. Place the chicken on a board, cover with cling film and bash with a rolling pin until 1cm (1/2-inch) thick. Cut into thin strips.
  3. Heat half the oil and fry the chicken over a high heat for 5 minutes or until golden. Add the remaining ingredients (except the oil) and stir fry for 3 minutes. Transfer to a plate and keep warm.
  4. Wipe out the frying pan, add a little more oil and when hot pour in a quarter of the egg mixture.
  5. Cook for a few seconds until the base has set, then use a spatula to push the cooked egg towards the centre of the pan, allowing the uncooked egg to run and re-cover the base.
  6. Repeat until there is no more runny egg. Continue to cook the omelette for 1-2 minutes or until the base is golden.
  7. Remove from the pan and keep warm. Repeat these stages to make four omelettes. Spoon the chicken mixture into the centre of the omelettes, fold over the edges and turn over to make neat square parcels. Serve warm.

What can you find in your kitchen tonight? #foodinspo #mondaymeals #leftovers #dinner #eggsThese spicy potato Scotch eggs are a great vegetarian addition to any lunchbox or weekend meal with family/friends. Serve with mango chutney and salad and you’re ready to go! #lunchboxideas #britishlioneggs #britisheggweek #scotcheggs #letsgetcrackingHere are some of our top tips for avoiding that hangry feeling. For more tips from a nutritionist and hunger-busting recipes click the link in our bio. 
1.	Hangry management is better than a hangry cure - stave off any danger of a hangry episode by choosing protein-based foods over carb or fat-based options; research shows that when eating meals of equal calories, those with a higher protein content help to keep you fuller for longer
2.	Stay fully hydrated - dehydration can be deceptive, making you think you’re hungry when actually you’re just thirsty - remember to drink plenty, especially in fluctuating temperatures
3.	DO NOT miss breakfast - the age-old mantra of ‘breakfasting like a king’ is one that still rings true; you should always eat a substantial breakfast, choose something speedy to make like our Avocado and Prosciutto Crunch Omelette… no excuses!
4.	Not any old breakfast - it’s vital that you don’t load up on sugary carbs at breakfast time. Help to avoid hangry related rage on the road, or tantrums on the train, by opting for high protein brekkie options like Fast Florentine eggs; the high protein content will keep hanger at bay until lunchtime
5.	Stay satiated – choose foods with low energy but high nutrient density and eat them frequently.  If you don’t like big meals, or your lifestyle isn’t conducive to the traditional ‘three square meals’, make sure you graze on the right foods.  Hangry feelings can make you reach for a quick fix sugary snack but picking a protein-based power snack instead – like Spicy Potato Scotch eggs – will deliver just enough carbs to stem the hanger while the eggy protein will give you protection against future hangry outbursts
