  • 1 chicken breast, pounded flat
  • Pinch sea salt
  • Pinch cayenne pepper
  • ¼ lemon juiced
  • 3 egg whites (separated)
  • 1 small vine-ripe tomato, sliced
  • 2-3 slices cheese (either feta or cheddar)
  • 1 whole-wheat English muffin
  • to taste sea salt
  • to taste pepper
  • olive oil (for cooking eggs)


  1. Rub chicken breast with sea salt, cayenne, and fresh lemon juice, and set aside.
  2. Place chicken breast on a hot grill or stove, turning after 2–3 minutes on each side; cook until fully done, turning frequently to avoid burning.
  3. Separate the eggs and scramble the whites, adding sea salt and pepper to the eggs as desired. Once chicken is fully cooked, slice the warm chicken breast, and layer the chicken, scrambled egg whites, tomato, and cheese slices to the toasted English muffin (or serve over a bed of fresh greens).
