What you’ll need

  • 1 egg

  • 3 tbsp olive oil

  • 1 bunch of asparagus
  • 2 garlic cloves

  • Zest of 1 lemon

  • Juice of ½ lemon

  • Sliced Cocorico chicken breast

  • A handful of cherry tomatoes

  • Feta cheese


How to make it

  1. Follow this technique to get perfectly cooked whites with a soft yolk. 

  2. To begin, heat a cast iron skillet with a bit of oil until hot.
  3. Crack an egg in the center and cook the egg whites until they turn an opaque white.
  4. Next, add a few droplets of water to the skillet and cover with a lid for 30 seconds.
  5. The steam will cook the egg whites on the surface while keeping the yolk soft.
  6. To prepare the asparagus:
Add 2 tbsp of extra virgin olive oil to a skillet.

  7. Add 2 cloves of minced garlic.
  8. Top with lemon zest and the juice of half a lemon.

  9. Sauté everything until aromatic. 
Add in the asparagus and sauté for about 5 minutes or until tender.

  10. Arrange two asparagus fronds on a plate and top with the egg.
  11. Add some sliced chicken on the side and layer with cherry tomatoes and crumbled feta.
