Chicken Omelette with tarragon and chives

Sharing is caring!

Christos Anesti!

Christos Anesti meaning Christ is risen is a greeting Orthodox Christians say during the whole period after Easter and until the Ascension of  Christ to Heaven.    In all liturgical services the Paschal troparion (hymn) of Christos Anesti is chanted during weddings, baptisms, funerals and this greeting is only used during the first time you see someone during this period.

We had a lovely time during Easter.  My son came from Cyprus and we went to Sparta and celebrated with the whole family.  Lamb on the spit, kokoretsi, sheftalia, Spartan sausages, dyed eggs, roasted potates, tzatziki, salads, tsourekia, koulouria and flaounes are some of the food we had.

We came back bringing with us some olive oil, pasto and loukaniko, fresh eggs, thyme honey etc.    To use some of these fresh eggs I made a special omelette, which goes to Nuria’s event Blog Your Omelet.

Great recipe Ivy! I love throwing together a hearty omelette and having that as a light dinner. Love the chicken and tarragon as I have never tried that combination with an omelette. I must try soon!
