I was really glad that I had some tomate chile verde sauce left after the breakfast potluck because I had an idea and it involved eggs and cheese and that awesome sauce. Eggs baked in a flavorful tomato sauce transform into a sort of sublime scrumptious-ness and I figured if it works for Shakshuka, then it should work just as well with this sauce.

And the verdict? oh yes, it definitely does! I took some of the leftover grilled chicken and vegies from my chicken kebabs and sprinkled it on top of the egg with a bit of cheese. I overcooked my egg a smidge so the yolk wasn’t quite runny, but it still tasted marvelous. The beauty of this recipe is you can make it for one or you can make it for ten and it really takes the same amount of time.

Chicken Chile Verde Baked Eggs


    For each serving:
  • about 1/4 - 1/3 cup Tomate Chile Verde Sauce (recipe here)
  • 1 egg
  • Red Robin seasoning (or salt) and fresh ground pepper
  • 1 - 2 Tablespoons chopped cooked chicken (I used Garlic Greek yogurt chicken-recipe here)
  • 1 - 2 Tablespoons chopped roasted vegies (from the Garlic Greek Yogurt chicken, if you like), chopped
  • About 2 Tablespoons shredded Mexican blend of cheeses


  1. Preheat the oven to 350 F. Spray an oven-safe bowl or casserole dish with cooking spray.
  2. Pour the sauce into the prepared dish and spread it out evenly. Make a well for each egg, then crack the egg into the "holes" and sprinkle lightly with seasoning and pepper. Sprinkle with chicken, vegies, and shredded cheese.
  3. Bake at 350 for about 15 minutes (or more, if you're making multiple servings) or until the egg white is set and the yolks are still soft and liquid (or if you prefer, let cook until the yolks are set too).
  4. Serve hot with toast to sop up the delicious juices from the egg and the sauce.
