Egg White Scramble with Chicken

This satisfying egg white scramble made with chicken is a great choice to start the day with plenty of protein—52 grams to be exact! It’s a great way to use leftover baked chicken breasts! Parmesan cheese and fresh basil leaves are an easy way to add lots of flavor without a lot of work. Don’t have basil? Try parsley, cilantro, chives, or even arugula instead.
