Recipe Wednesday - Spicy Chicken Omelet

I thought I would try something new. I'm going to try and post a recipe every Wednesday. Please let me know if you try it out and what you think of it! I encourage you to take any recipe and use it just as a formula. Change it up and make it your own! Tonight for dinner, I had planned to make Jillian Michaels' Spicy Chicken, but my son informed me that today was opposites day in preschool, so we had to have breakfast for dinner. Hmmm...How do I not go off plan, and still have breakfast for dinner? I ended up changing the recipe a little, and then added 2 eggs and a little cheese to make a spicy chicken omelet. It looked awful, but tasted really good! Here is the recipe (and a picture, for all you flash dieters!):

Spicy Chicken Omelet

1 4oz chicken breast
1 clove garlic, minced
1/2c mexican style diced tomatoes
2 eggs, beaten
1/4c shredded cheese

1. Cook the chicken breast. I pan fried it in a quick spray of Pam cooking oil spray - about 6 minutes per side for a 4 oz breast. Then remove it from the pan and cut into bite sized pieces.

2. Place the chicken back in the pan. Add the garlic and tomatoes (I used Rotel Tomatoes w/ green chilies - you could use fresh tomatoes and/or jalapenos or just use salsa). Let some of the tomato juice cook off.

3. Add the beaten eggs.

4. Cook until the eggs are as firm as you like them. Sprinkle the cheese on top.

I served mine with cauliflower and strawberries:
