Chicken and Broccoli Quiche

We have been planning to put this quiche on the site for a long time, we were still postponing and others were coming out. But last week I had guests and it was the perfect opportunity to do it for the site as well. It's very tasty, filling, looks good and appetizing - I really recommend you buy a tart pan on this occasion, although not necessarily to make it in the tart pan, but I tell you it's better that way. I made it in pizza trays, and in the round tray, the taste does not change, but it looks much better in the tart tray.

In fact, the classic name of the tart is - Quiche Lorraine - a classic French tart, served as an appetizer, and can be made with any other filling, there is much room for improvisation here. There are many recipes, this one seemed very successful, so I recommend it with confidence.

1 piece
boil it for 30 minutes and let it cool
400 g

Frozen broccoli
200 g

2 pieces
50 g
3 pieces
2 for the filling and 1 for the dough
3 tbsp
White flour
200 g
Heavy cream (32% fat)
200 ml

Yellow cheese

Step by step

Step 1

Boil the chicken breast for 30 minutes, let it cool. During this time we prepare the filling.

Peel an onion, wash it, cut it into small pieces and fry it in a little oil until it is slightly pink.

Step 2

Then add the washed and finely chopped mushrooms to the onion. If you use canned mushrooms, just drain them well. Stir and let it cook for 10-15 minutes (actually until the water that will leave the mushrooms decreases).

Now we prepare the dough for the tart.

Mix 1 egg with soft butter (50g), do not need with the mixer, mix lightly with a spoon, add 0.5 teaspoon of salt and 3 tablespoons of water, mix again.

After 30 minutes, grease the tart pan with a little butter. Roll out the dough and place it in the pan, lightly press with your fingers to make the edges and evenly distribute the dough.

Step 11

Then add the cheese given by the smallest grater. Mix well, add a little salt and, if you prefer, you can add a little ground nutmeg.

Step 12

Pour this mixture evenly over the tart filling. The cheese is harder to distribute because it stays on the surface - spread it evenly with a fork over the entire surface of the tart.

Put the tray in the oven for about an hour, until browned, at 180-200 degrees.

Step 13

After browning, remove and allow to cool slightly. Then take it out of the pan and serve as an appetizer or as food.

In the future I will put other variants of quiche, but that would be the basic recipe. With the filling you can improvise anyway, if you don't like broccoli, don't put it on, just as chicken breast can be replaced with some of your favorite sausages.

Good appetite!
