Make this easy to prepare Chicken and Cheese Eggs Skillet for breakfast or dinner. The perfect breakfast treat for special occasions like Christmas morning or when you have guests.
My recipe for this Chicken and Cheese Eggs Skillet is inspired by a breakfast served at our favorite fast food restaurant, Chik fil a. My hubby convinced me to try their Hash Brown Scramble bowl and I was pleasantly surprised.

Here’s what you will need to make this dish
- Chicken Tenders
- Hash Rounds
- Cabot Cheddar Cheese, shredded
- Salt & Pepper to taste
- Fajita Plate Set, cast iron with wooden tray (I am using this one found on Amazon)
We found some yummy frozen chicken tenders we enjoy and I used those for this dish. but if you really want to make them from scratch, try this easy recipe that my family enjoys. Here is the Air Fryer version of the same recipe.
My choice for cheese is Cabot Extra Sharp White Cheddar! Who else loves the extra sharp cheese? Visit Cabot on Instagram for lots of cheesy ideas for cheese lovers like me and you!
This breakfast casserole is really easy to make and everyone will love it. You have to admit, it is also fun to eat right from the skillet too! Let’s get started.
Do you have chicken lovers in your home? You know the one’s that order chicken in every restaurant, even the steak house? My youngest daughter usually orders chicken tenders everywhere.
When she and her hubby come to visit during the holiday season, we always make a special breakfast for them. It is usually my hubby doing the breakfast cooking but this time, I’m treating everyone. They are going to love that this dish is a Chik fil a copycat!
CHICKEN TENDERS AND HASH ROUNDS
Begin by cooking the chicken tenders and hash rounds in the oven according to package directions. See how easy that is! I mean, if you are making this for guests or even your own family on Christmas morning, you need some time savers, right! Plus this dish won’t make a big mess in the kitchen either. That is a win-win for me.
Layer the cooked hash rounds on the bottom of the pan. I lined them around the edges because it made the dish attractive and added a few to the middle as well.
Cut the prepared chicken tenders into smaller bite size pieces and place them into the center of the pan.
EGGS ARE NEXT
Watch the timer on your oven while you are cooking the chicken tenders and hash rounds. This is when you will be shredding the cheese and cooking the eggs.
Go ahead and scramble or fry your eggs, whichever you prefer just before the oven timer goes off. This way your eggs will still be hot. Change the oven setting to the broiler when you remove the food from the oven. Now top the chicken with your eggs.
Sprinkle the cheese evenly across the top of the eggs and set the skillet in the oven under the broiler just long enough to melt the cheese. Do not walk away. Stay there and watch the cheese melt. It only takes a few seconds in most ovens.
Top the cheese with a few sprigs of Thyme or chopped scallions and serve hot!
JUST ADD COFFEE
We want this breakfast to be special so we are also making Cold Brew Coffee which my youngest daughter loves. When Zulay Kitchen sent me this Coffee Boss Cold Brew Maker I was thrilled. The surprises just keep coming with our Christmas breakfast this year.
See the video for how wonderfully easy this Cold Brew Maker is to use. You can actually also make hot coffee or tea in it as well.
Shop Zulay Kitchen on Amazon for this Cold Brew Maker and more top quality kitchen products.
So set the table really pretty and surprise those special people in your home with a thoughtful and fun Christmas breakfast. Set the Coffee Boss on the table so everyone can pour their own into festive cups. Enjoy the fellowship over a warm and filling meal and a delicious cup of coffee. I like to call it ‘coffee and conversation’ and it’s best enjoyed at the kitchen table in my home.
