Ready In:
30 mini quiches




  • Heat the oven to 350.
  • In a small bowl, whisk together the eggs, cream , salt & pepper.
  • In another bowl, mix the chicken, chilies, cilantro & cheese.
  • Place the phyllo cups on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper or foil. Spoon 1 rounded tsp of chicken filling into each shell, then add about 1 tsp of egg mixture. Let the shells sit for about 1 minute so the egg can settle to the bottom, then top with another tsp of egg mixture-filling it close to the top.
  • Bake cups about 15 minutes, or until filling has set.
  • *After cooling, can be frozen for upt to 2 weeks-reheat @ 350 for 10-15 min.*.

    Lovely little bites! I agree with Lucky in Bayview: the cilantro really makes these. I used well-seasoned chicken which I would also recommend. Thank you for sharing!

    We really liked these. I think the cilantro made it. This mixture would be good in wonton skins too. Thanks for posting this reicpe!

    I made this for a jewelry party I had and the guests, and me, thought these were incredible!


I am a stay at home (or in the car:)) mom to two cute kids-ages 7 & 4-and one husband! He's pretty cute too....We live in Fullerton,California, which is also where I grew up. I love, love, love to cook, drink wine with friends, shop, travel, read magazines and collect cookbooks. I have zillions of them and love to sit on the couch with a good cookbook! I belong to a guild of Children's Hospital of Orange County(CHOC) and we recently just finished our own cookbook to raise funds for the hospital. I also enjoy shopping and selling on ebay-so many fun things to find out there! Thanks Liza at recipezaar (my college roomate) for leading me here. <img src="" border="0" alt="Photo Sharing and Video Hosting at Photobucket"> <img src=""><img src="" border="0" alt="Photo Sharing and Video Hosting at Photobucket">
