Chicken Breakfast Muffins

I love a good crossover recipe. These Chicken Breakfast Muffins are such a great meal hack. Even though “breakfast” is in the title, they work well for a snack, breakfast, lunch or brunch.

I have to admit that it felt a little odd at first to include “chicken” and “breakfast” in the same title. I have never cooked chicken as a breakfast food before, but let me tell you -it works.

I was on Chicken.ca looking for other tasty chicken breakfast recipes and I also found one that I want to try in the future, a Chicken Breakfast Skillet.  To make life that much easier, I checked it out on the Chicken.ca Shopping App.
