Chicken and spinach frittata

feat_frittata

My favourite type of protein food is eggs. I could never go vegan just because I cannot live without eggs. I always buy organic, free range kind. Well I have an old lady that sells me eggs from her own hens. She even writes dates they were laid with a pencil. How cute is that. So those hens wander around, have a bug or two, greens they choose their own. I have never tasted a better egg. We eat lots of eggs, I’d say about 50-60 a month for our family of three. We love them scrambled, soft-boiled, poached, as omelettes, oh we love them always ­čÖé I love making frittatas or tortillas for Mike and Gaba’s work and school, since they taste amazing also when they’re cold. I had some cooked chicken from the broth I was making the previous day and some spinach and this recipe was formed very quickly ­čÖé This recipe feeds two people.
