    WaterMelon's Note:

    Quick and easy dish for anytime of the day! I had this for breakfast with a cup of hot green tea but I think this is great with jasmine rice for dinner too. The 6 spices are the Chinese 5-spice and ground coriander - makes a delicious fusion dish! To save time, while you marinate the chicken, cut the vegetables and prepare the omelette.

    Sauce mix together


    1. 1
      Combine chicken and other marinade ingredients in a non-reactive bowl; set aside for 15mins
    2. 2
      In the meantime, combine eggs, 2 TB water, black pepper together in a bowl; whisk slightly until well combined and foamy
    3. 3
      Heat 1 tsp of oil in a wok over med-high heat, pour 1/4 of egg mixture, tilting the wok to cover the base and side
    4. 4
      As the egg sets, gently lift the edge to uncooked egg runs underneath; cook for 1 minute or until set
    5. 5
      Slide omelette into a large plate, cover to keep warm; repeat with remaining egg to make 4 omelettes
    6. 6
      Heat another 2 tsp of oil in the same wok (remove any egg leftover with a clean kitchen paper towel) over med-high heat; add onions and stir fry for 2 minutes, until soft and slightly browned
    7. 7
      Add garlic, stir fry for another minute then add the marinated chicken, stir fry for another 2 minutes until just cooked through (unless you have a large wok, you may need to cook the chicken in 2 batches, to prevent overcrowding the wok)
    8. 8
      Add sliced mushrooms to the wok, stir fry the mixture for 1 min (until mushrooms are cooked)
    9. 9
      Now add the bean sprouts, give the mixture a good quick stir
    10. 10
      Quickly add the sauce (make sure it's high heat) - the sauce should boil off quickly, leaving a slightly wet mixture, like a glaze
    11. 11
      Divide the omelettes into 4 serving plates, top each halves with 1/4 of the filling; fold into half to enclose the filling
    12. 12
      Drizzle with a drops of dark soy sauce if desired and sprinkle with green onions; serve immediately

      I really enjoy preparing omelettes for brunch and this was no exception. The directions are easy to follow and the it is easy to prepare. Has a nice mixture of flavors and makes a pretty presentation.
