I am aware that there is a Kosher rule about not cooking an animal in the milk of its mother (or similar) but I have just realised that I have bene subconsciously living by a similar rule. I looked at my fridge and there was some eggs and some chicken breasts and I realised that I don't eat anything that has chicken and eggs in.

In the past, I probably have had a chicken salad sandwich with mayo but very rarely.

Am I missing an obvious classic recipe somewhere?

This isn't an urgent request. I am having an omelette and am going to do something else with the chicken

I don't have the recipe, but it did inspire this song.

You could put cooked chicken breasts into that omelette. Add some red pepper and cheese and it'd be pretty tasty, I'd think. Might turn into more of a frittata though.

Ha! My first reaction, too, on reading BOTD's post was to look for a link to that song...

You don't eat crumbed chicken breasts, Bored? The batter should include egg.

Well I never knew that. Two things though. Who would buy a dish called that. Too graphic.

Secondly, I am not sure about this line now

"Oh, oh the mother and child reunion
Is only a motion away"

Thanks for the recipe Scotian, but as I say, I am not in a hurry to put the two together just musing on the mutual exclusivity of the two, certainly in my culinary imagination.

I have actually enjoyed an omellette with mushrooms but no cheese which is a recent development of my current egg-fest.

I don't know whether it is because I now use organic eggs but I never used to think that an omelette without cheese would be tasty enough. It is, however, delicious

Now you mention it, I don't but you are, of course, correct

Chicken doesn't work in an omelette.

I eat chicken stir-fries with egg fried rice, regularly. Always strikes me as odd.

That was the only other example that I could think of as well but I never eat chicken sir fry with egg fried rice either.

It does look like it is a common thing rather than my own personal sub-conscious poultry culinary apartheid

Chicken and Sweetcorn soup (Chinese style) comes to mind. Strips of fried chicken, maybe a few mushrooms, sweetcorn, spring onions, all fried then brought up to the simmer with chicken stock and a little cornoflour, then what gives it that fantastic gelatinous authentic chinese feel at then end is you slowly pour and stir into the simmering broth a beaten egg mixed with a little seasame oil (or two, depending on how much you're making).

Same applies to hot and sour soup, although that's all about adding chill and wine vinegar in the mix.

I really don't get it being that unusual.

As G-man notes, an egg-based batter is pretty standard for any kind of bread crumb based preparation (be it Kiev, Milanese, Southern Fried, etc). And two "classics" of "American-Chinese" cuisine: Egg Drop Soup and Chicken Egg Foo Young, also combine the two (as do at least some Japanese versions of similar dishes).

And that's before one gets to all of the variations on chicken salad that use mayonaise.

Chicken Breyani (var. sp.) often has boiled eggs in it.

I always thought that Balut was duck, GY.

And G-man, that's a strange biryani (at least in my experience).
