Chicken Quiche Real Men Love

Chicken Quiche Real Men Love created by Bonnie G 2

This recipe won 1st place in the RSC Lucky #13 contest. This quiche is more like a meat and vegetable pie with a cheese/egg custard holding it together. Because the chicken, onions and mushrooms are sauted to the point of carmelization the resulting flavors create a really tasty quiche. I hope you try it and that your family enjoys it as much as we did. This was so good the first time that I didn't make any changes and only needed to make it once, since no adjustments we necessary. My granddaughter who had never eaten any kind of quiche and was reluctant to try it, said after the first few bites, "OOOh, This is really good, I like this!" I hope you like it as well. This can easily be a main dish for dinner or for lunch. It is so full of meat and veggies that it is a meal in itself.

ingredients

  • 8 tablespoons butter
  • 2 chicken breasts, cut into small pieces
  • 1 large chopped onion
  • 5 baby portabella mushrooms (sliced)
  • 10 fresh baby carrots (julienne'd makes about 1/2 cup)
  • 12 cup broccoli, slaw
  • frozen spinach (5 ounces thawed & squeezed dry makes approx 1/2 cup)
  • 1 (6 ounce) package Laughing Cow cheese
  • 7 egg yolks (beaten)
  • 8 ounces milk
  • 12 cup freshly grated parmesan cheese
  • 1 12 teaspoons salt (will be added in 1/2 teaspoon increments)
  • 34 teaspoon black pepper (will be added in 1/4 teaspoon increments)
  • 1 large unbaked pie shell

directions

  • Put the unbaked Pie crust in a 10 inch pie pan. Cover with plastic wrap and put aside.
  • Place 4 Tablespoons of the butter in a hot skillet.
  • Add the chopped chicken pieces and season with ½ teaspoon salt and ¼ teaspoon black pepper.
  • Cook until golden brown. Remove meat from pan and set aside on several layers of paper towels.
  • In the same skillet melt the other 4 Tablespoons of butter. Add the onions, the mushrooms,1/2 teaspoon of salt, and ¼ teaspoon of black pepper.
  • Cook onions and mushrooms until carmelized, by cooking them until they are golden brown. Remove from pan and add to the chicken.
  • Lightly partially cook the julliened carrots and the broccoli slaw in the skillet with any remaining drippings for about 2 minutes. Turn off heat.
  • Add the drained spinach, chicken, onions and mushrooms into the skillet which already has the carrots and broccoli slaw in it.
  • Add the remaining ½ teaspoon salt and the ¼ teaspoon black pepper. Gently toss the ingredients until the spinach is well mixed with the other ingredients.
  • Cream the Laughing Cow Cheese in a medium sized bowl. Add the egg yolks and the milk and mix as much as possible. (If some of the cheese stays in pieces that will be okay since they will end up on the top anyway.
  • Put the meat & vegetable combination into the pie crust lined pan.
  • Gently pour in the milk, egg cheese mixture.
  • Sprinkle the ½ cup of freshly grated parmesean cheese on top.
  • Bake 375 degrees for 40-45 minutes.

    No wonder this won 1st Place, it is so good and considering all that goes into it - not that hard to make. The flavors all blended so well and it made plenty. I froze about half of it in slices and will see how that works out when I defrost them later. This is the first time I've worked with laughing cow and I first melted it in the microwave and that was no problem. Also could not get broccoli slaw at our tiny store so bought fresh broccoli, cut it fine and then stir fried with the other vegies and that worked well. The custard type filling not only tasted great but held it's shape well making it attractive to serve. I'm so happy I tried this as it as good for a dinner as breakfast and a great way to get those veggies into DH who tends to not eat many. Thanks Carrol for a great recipe. Made for PAC Fall - 09

    What a yummy quiche! I finally found time to make this and I'm glad that I did. I've never had chicken in my quiche and I thought it was a really nice addition. It's a little time consuming on the front-end, but it yields a hearty and healthy quiche that even my DS enjoyed. I didn't use a stick of butter on this recipe - that would be too much for our taste.
