How to Cook Chicken + Egg Breakfast Pie

by Jody Wagstaff

Chicken, edamame, bell peppers and eggs combine to delight your palate on this ultra simple breakfast pie. Cheers


  • ¼ Pounds Roasted chicken
  • 1 Pie shell
  • ¾ Cups Bell peppers
  • ½ Cups Edamame
  • 6 Eggs
  • 3 Ounces Cream cheese
  • 1 Teaspoon Smoked paprika
  • Salt and pepper
  • Instructions

    Step 1

    Preheat oven to 400F

    Step 2

    Allow pie shell to thaw at room temp. This should only take about 5-10 min. If you set it on top of the preheating oven it will thaw faster. Better yet, make your own pastry, I'm too lazy. ;)

    Step 3

    Fork your she'll all over it. This will allow steam to escape and keep your shell from ballooning up.

    Step 4

    Bake for approx 10min. Ovens vary in temperature and heat distribution so keep your eye on it.

    Step 5

    While the shell is in the oven, dice your peppers.

    Step 6

    Boil your edamame for about 2-4 minutes.

    Step 7

    Whisk the eggs and season with the salt and pepper

    Step 8

    Pull your chicken.

    Step 9

    The shell should look like this. Don't over cook it as it will be going back into the oven for awhile.

    Step 10

    Chicken into the shell.

    Step 11

    Add the peppers and edamame on to the chicken.

    Step 12

    Dice the cream cheese. The cheese I sticky so I do this right before I put it onto the pie. If you do it ahead of time it may jut all clump together.

    Step 13

    Add the cheese

    Step 14

    Pour the whisked eggs into the shell.

    Step 15

    Sprinkle with the smoke paprika and pop the pie in the oven.

    Step 16

    This takes about 30-45 minutes to bake. Just enough time for a few mimosa's or a couple caesars. .

    Step 17

    Let it settle for about 5 minutes before cutting it. Use a serrated knife to cut it so you get nice looking wedges. You eat with your eyes before your mouth so take the time to present it right.

    Step 18

    Simple salad with tomato an orange slices are all I needed to finish this delicious brunch dish. This meal had all of is back into the kitchen looking for leftover scraps.
