“I haven't eaten very well the last day or so due to the flu, so I figured I'd better "kick it up a notch" for breakfast. Now, when I started it, I only meant that I was going to make something more substantial than toast and tea...something with protein and complex carbs...but it came out more like Emeril's definition!!! Wowzers! The amounts are approximate, as I didn't measure anything...I just made it to taste. And while the cinnamon sounds strange in there, it's an integral part of the flavor.”

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Coat the bottom of a frying pan with the oil and set the chicken tenders in there over medium heat.
  2. Drizzle a few teaspoons of water into the pan and cover it with a tight-fitting lid.
  3. Let simmer a couple of minutes or til it starts to thaw a bit.
  4. Flip the tenders, then use the spatula/pancake turner to chop the chicken into bite-size pieces while it's cooking on the other side.
  5. After chopping, add the ham, shrimp, onions and red pepper flakes.
  6. Turn heat up to medium-high.
  7. Cook and stir for approximately 1-2 minutes.
  8. Add the cabbage, zucchini, peas, green onion and remaining spices.
  9. Saute til the cabbage is crisp-tender.
