Chicken Quiche in a Garlic Rosemary Crust


Being a fan of the breakfast for dinner concept really makes this little creation that much less of a surprise, ha - I like my eggs, what can I say? The great thing, despite the steps, is that making a quiche such as this is simple and easy to vary. Add onions, peppers, chipotle spices or use sausage or meatballs instead of chicken? Why not? It's the choice of the chef or the eater, so enjoy the taste as much as the process! This protein-packed quiche will easily fill the stomach and satisfy the hunger.

2 Serving
Prep Time: 25 Minutes

8oz of Chicken
1 Tbsp Butter, Unsalted, Melted
1 Tsp Cayenne Pepper
Salt and Pepper for taste
5 Egg Whites
1 Egg, Whole
1 Slice Muenster Cheese

1/2 Cup Flour, All-Purpose
1 Tsp Baking Powder
1 Tsp Rosemary, Dried
1 Tsp Garlic, Crushed
1 1/2 Tbsp Butter, Unsalted, Room Temperature
1 1/2 Tbsp Water

Preheat oven to 350 degrees.

Garlic Rosemary Crust, pan-pressed
First things first, cube and boil the chicken in a saucepan for about 15 minutes on medium-high heat. Drain and set aside when fully cooked. While the chicken is boiling, prepare the crust. Combine the flour, baking powder, garlic, rosemary and butter with a fork until crumbly. Add in water and mix until doughy. Knead with hands until smooth in texture. Press crust mid-way into two nonstick mini-loaf pans (or a comparable sized pan). Use a fork to press a few holes and bake for 10 minutes.

Quiches, pre-bake
Shred the chicken and toss with melted butter, cayenne pepper, and salt/pepper for taste and set aside. In a mixing bowl, whisk the whole egg and egg whites until foamy. Place a half of the Muenster slice at the bottom of both pans and spoon a few spoonfuls of the eggs over each. Split the chicken between the two and pour the rest of the eggs over each. Bake for approx. 40 minutes at 350 degrees until inserted knife comes out clean and quiche is a golden yellow.

Quiches, ready-to-go!
Sure, it could seem like a lot, but the combination of lightness and heaviness in both texture and flavor makes this breakfast dish quite the treat. Enjoy it while it's hot!
