Put an egg on it—or the very classy "puddaneggonit"—has become a common strategy for turning something simple into a satisfying dinner. And we're all for breaking out a skillet to make a crackly-edged fried one or a trio of soft-scrambleds when the hunger pangs hit.
Fry, fry, fry. Turn them into soy-spiked Scotch Eggs: Mix ground chicken with lots of chopped basil, ginger, and scallions, flatten into a patty, and wrap around each egg. Fry in vegetable oil till golden (they'll be hard cooked when you're done!).
Make a (non-traditional) taco! Chop them coarsely use to fill blistered tortillas and top with fried Brussels sprouts and kimchi.
Menemen-ish! Sauté peppers until soft, add a little leftover tomato sauce, then fold in the quartered eggs for a variation on Menemen.
Rice bowl. Fold into a bowl of shredded chicken, cooked rice, watercress, and dress with equal parts lime juice and fish sauce.
