A Quiche is great for brunch, and hearty enough for dinner. I just love Asparagus, and it goes so well with the chicken and ham...I also cheat and use rotisserie chicken...enjoy!

Directions Step-By-Step

1
Preheat oven to 425 degree F.

In a bowl toss chicken, ham, asparagus and cheese.

Place into unbaked pie shell.

Whisk milk, eggs, and seasonings together. ( I use my blender, makes the quiche fluffy and light. )

Pour over mixture in pie shell. I sometimes add some grated cheese to the top, the last few minutes of baking.

Bake for 15 minutes at 425 degrees.

Reduce heat to 300 degrees and bake another 40-45 minutes or until knife inserted in middle comes out clean.

Enjoy!
