  • 8 large eggs, lightly beaten
  • 1/2 red bell pepper, finely chopped
  • 1 stalk celery, sliced thin
  • 1/2 cup mushrooms, finely chopped
  • 1/2 onion, finely chopped
  • 1/2 cup chopped fresh bean sprouts
  • 4 green onions, chopped (green & white parts)
  • 1/2 teaspoon kosher salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon white pepper
  • 1 cup cooked chicken, finely diced (Rotisserie chicken recommended)
  • 1 1/4 cups chicken broth
  • 3 tablespoons soy sauce
  • 1 tablespoon rice vinegar
  • 2 teaspoons brown sugar
  • 1 teaspoon sesame oil
  • 2 tablespoons cornstarch
  • 3 tablespoons cold water
  • 3 tablespoons canola oil


  1. In a large bowl, combine beaten eggs with red pepper, celery, mushrooms, onions, bean sprouts, half of the green onions, and diced chicken.
  2. In a small saucepan over low heat, blend chicken broth, soy sauce, rice vinegar, brown sugar, and sesame oil. Create a slurry by whisking together cornstarch and water, then slowly incorporate it into the saucepan. Stir until the sauce thickens and bubbles.
  3. Heat a nonstick skillet with 1/2 tablespoon of canola oil over medium heat. Add approximately 1/2 cup of the egg mixture, cooking until lightly browned on the bottom. Flip and brown the other side. Plate and keep warm. Repeat until all the batter is utilized.
  4. Serve the warm omelets with the savory gravy, generously sprinkling the remaining green onions for a finishing touch.
