Can you say Fajita Frittata 3 times fast??

Have left over chicken and not sure what to do with it?? Do what I did.. Make a Chicken Fajita Frittata!   Seems like Friday night is a popular night for roast chicken, so when a weekend brunch comes along why not use the inevitable left over chicken for a quick and fun take on a brunch classic?
I have been kind of obsessing over frittatas lately, They are so easy, pretty healthy, and pretty cheap to make too. With a little cash you can feed like 8 people. That is not too shabby if you are counting your pennies!
So what I did was saute slices of different colored bell peppers and onion in my cast iron pan with a little olive oil, and when they started to develop color I added in the meat I had pulled apart from one chicken breast. I seasoned the mix with Adobo, chili powder, salt, and pepper.
While that cooked and the chicken got heated back up, I whisked a dozen eggs with a handful of chopped cilantro, a little more adobo and chili powder, and a splash of cold water.
When the peppers and onion were tender, and the chicken was hot, I took the mix out and placed them aside. I added a little more olive oil to the pan and then poured the eggs in.
I took the chicken and veg out so that the egg could set in the pan a bit and firm up for a few minutes so that all the chicken and veg don't sink to the bottom.
When the eggs are just a little bit firm, add the chicken mix back into the pan evenly throughout the eggs, and stick it in an oven that has been preheated to 375. It will take about 20-30 minutes for the frittata to cook, and when it's done it will be golden on top and will have puffed up and look huge. Don't worry if it looks lopsided or strange in anyway. It's just air and the whole thing will deflate as it cool.
I didn't have any, but this would have gone great with a little Avocado on top, or a little hot sauce!

That's it! Enjoy your frittata, enjoy your weekend, and don't forget to share!
XOXO -P
