How I Came Up With a Buffalo Chicken Egg White Omelet
Earlier this week, I had breakfast with a friend of mine at a local place we had never tried before. They had a lot of dishes I don't typically see at the breakfast joints I frequent.
My friend ordered the Buffalo Chicken Omelet. It sounded awesome. The waitress delivered it and it looked even better than it sounded.
Fast forward a few days, I can not get this omelet out of my head. The only problem is my guess is that the omelet they serve up at the restaurant problem comes with about 1,000,000,000 calories.
Fine, maybe not that many, but I bet it's a lot.
I was determined to make a version I could feel good about. I've been on a kick of breakfasts under 300 calories lately.
How To Make Buffalo Chicken Egg White Omelet
First, cut up your chicken. I used some leftover grilled chicken but feel free to use rotisserie chicken, store-bought pre-cooked chicken or whatever chicken you have lying around. I do pop it in the microwave for about 30 seconds to heat it up a bit. Stir the buffalo sauce into the chicken and set aside.
Spritz a little oil in a 8 inch omelet pan. Pour 6 T of egg white into pan, sprinkle with salt and pepper. It will only take a minute or two to start to set.
Once the egg is starting to set, place your filling ingredients on one half of omelet.
Fold the omelet over to cover fillings.
To make things a little more attractive I top the omelet with a small amount of additional buffalo sauce, scallions and blue cheese crumbles. If you really want to go crazy, drizzle with a little blue cheese dressing.
Do you even believe that this is under 300 calories? I'm totally a carb-a-holic, which is why I'm trying to cut a few here and there and I've got to tell you, I didn't even care that I didn't have toast on the side of this breakfast!
How Did You Calculate The Calories?
I am no expert on calories. In my own weight loss journey right now, I've been using the My Fitness Pal App and that is where I got the calories count. Of course, different brands will adjust the numbers by a bit. Here is the breakdown of how my Buffalo Chicken Egg White Omelet was calculated:
Harvestland Chicken 2 oz (cooked w/ seasoned salt & pepper) = 60 calories
Frigo Blue Cheese Crumbles 1 T = 25 calories
Stop & Shop Brand Egg Whites 6 T = 50 calories
Frank's Buffalo Wing Sauce 1 T = 0 calories
Misto spray of olive oil = 10 calories
Total: 145 Calories

Buffalo Chicken Egg White Omelet
- 1 spray of olive oil spritz or 1 teaspoon olive oil
- 2 oz chicken cooked
- 1 T Buffalo Wing Sauce
- 6 T egg whites
- 1 T blue cheese crumbles
- 1 T chopped green onions
- Reheat chicken. I do this in the microwave to keep it quick. Stir buffalo sauce into the chicken and set aside.
- Place omelet pan over medium-low heat. Spritz with a mist of olive oil, or if no mister available, use 1 teaspoon olive oil.
- Pour egg whites into heated pan and season with a pinch of salt and pepper. Let cook, WITHOUT stirring until starting to set. This should only take 2-3 minutes.
- Arrange chicken, green onions and blue cheese crumbles on one half of omelet. Fold other half of egg over the fillings and let cook 1-2 minute more to heat through.
- Serve immediately.
- If desired, top omelet with 1 teaspoon buffalo sauce and/or additional blue cheese crumbles and green onions.

This will be so good for breakfast instead of my regular omelette. Thanks for sharing.
The Omelet sounds delicious. I wouldn't be able to get it out of my head either. But I love how you lightened it up and made it healthier by making an egg white omelet. So clever!
I love buffalo chicken and I love omelettes so this recipe just makes sense for me- need to make this ASAP!

It looks so yummy I am just stuck on it.
Very interesting recipe. Are you using liquid egg whites that come in a carton or freshly cracked egg whites?
I used liquid egg whites from a carton.
