I’m sure we’ve all heard the phrase “Breakfast is the most important meal of the day” thousands of times. Though it may be a bit cliche, it’s so true! Starting your morning off with a well-balanced meal gives our bodies the nutrients it needs to tackle the day ahead. I’ve admittedly never been a big breakfast person, but once I realized how much better I feel after a well-rounded meal in the morning, breakfast became a priority. Eggs are quick and easy to prepare, making them a busy breakfast staple. I love finding ways to add a bit of variation to classic scrambled eggs, which is exactly what this recipe is! My Chicken and Eggs Breakfast Scramble is on a very consistent rotation in the Blackmon home… simple, nutritious, and prepared in a snap!

Tiffy Tip! Make this recipe your own by adding diced potatoes, bell pepper, onion, or anything else that sounds good! I love to top it with my fresh salsa recipe and serve on tortillas.
