Chicken, Cheese and Broccoli Quiche

Substitute as you please to use up those leftovers from your Christmas Dinner. But do enjoy this simple homemade quiche. It is so easy I hate to admit that I too have used 'pre-made' boxed biscuit mixes for this type of quiche before. But they are much more expensive and making your own biscuit quiche is not only more economical...you can use ingredients you already have in your pantry. This makes a 13 x 9 inch pan...simply divide in half for a smaller version.

Ingredients
  • 1 1/2 cups chopped cooked chicken (turkey, smoked salmon, sausage or bacon)
  • 1/2 cup chopped onion
  • 1/4 cup chopped red pepper (or green, yellow, orange...are you getting the picture?)
  • 1 cup chopped frozen broccoli, thawed (or fresh cooked and drained, or asparagus, or leftover corn....etc.)
  • 8 eggs
  • 2 cups milk
  • 1 cup flour
  • 1 cup shredded sharp cheese
  • 1/4 cup parmesan (goat cheese, leftovers from a party tray...etc.)
  • salt and pepper to taste

Heat oven to 400F.

Spray a 13 x 9 inch glass baking dish with cooking spray. Sprinkle the chicken, onion, peppers, cheese and broccoli in baking dish. In a separate bowl mix the rest and beat until smooth. pour over the chicken mixture. Bake 20 to 25 minutes or until a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean. Let stand five to ten minutes before slicing and serving.

  3. Hi there, I am wanting to prepare this quiche and have in the past used the BisQuik powder in my recipe. I just want to know if the flour in this recipe does the same thing as the bisquik? I'd prefer not to have to purchase a box of pre-made biscuit mix!
    Thanks for all your wonderful recipes, loooove your web-site!!

  4. MD Regular flour is all that is needed in this recipe so you do not have to go out and purchase bisquik powder.
