Chicken Quiche

Chicken quiche:I can finally make quiche! My favourite person’s favourite thing in the world, isnt it? Can’t wait to make one for her soon :)This one’s for you Upsie!
Ingredients:
Crust:
150 gm flour
75 gm unsalted frozen butter cut into small peices
1 tb sp salt
3 tb sp ice cold water
3 tsp herbs (I used thyme)
Method:
Seive the flour. Add salt. Add the cold butter. Now using a couple of forks mash the butter into the flour till it breaks into smaller peices. Add the thyme. Now use your hands and quickly bring it together without using much pressure. Add the water to help form a dough which should not be too hard or too soft. Let it sit in the fridge for about half an hour. Bring it out and roll it to get 1/4 inch thickness. Using a knife or pizza cutter, cut out a big round shape, basically bigger that the rim of you pie tin. Now place it in the greased and dusted pie tin and scrape off the extra dough from the rim. Place a sheet of butter paper in it and fill it with kidney beans or rice or any grains to weigh the butterpaper down. Now bake this in a pre-heated oven for 30 min at 180-190C. This is basically to bake the crust.
Filling:
250 gm boneless chicken cut into small peices
1 med onion chopped
3 tb sp oil
Salt to taste
3 tb sp mixed herbs
1 tsp pepper
1 cup grated mozzerella cheese
2 eggs
1 cup milk
Heat oil. Add onions. Saute till it turns transparent. Add herbs. Add chicken, pepper and salt. Let this cook till chicken is done, that should be about 10 min. Let it cool. Bring out the baked crust in its tin. Remove the butterpaper with the grains. Arrange a layer of half the cheese at the bottom of the crust. Now add the chicken filling and again top it with the remaining cheese. Beat the 2 eggs into the milk and just before popping it into the oven pour it into the quiche filling. Bake for about 30 min in a pre-heated oven, at 200C, or till it forms a golden brown color on top. Let it cool before you tear it apart.
This makes for a great lunch with a side of steamed veggies and some iced tea maybe. So comforting 🙂
