Starting your day with a protein-rich breakfast is always a good idea. It's also good to change up your first meal of the day every now and then. If you want to make something other than scrambled eggs every day, you will love today's recipe. In an ovenproof container, we combined chicken, bell pepper strips, eggs, cheese, and bread. Your kitchen will smell great while your breakfast bakes. Even better, make this the day before and reheat it in the oven the next morning for an even quicker breakfast. Serve it with refried beans, salsa, and a freshly brewed cup of coffee. MORE + LESS -

Expert Tips

  • Save time by using frozen bell pepper strips. Cook them the same way you would fresh peppers.
  • If you like spicy, add 1-2 chopped serrano chilies or 1/4 teaspoon of dry red chili flakes.
  • For a smoky taste, use rotisserie chicken.
