I'm not sure where the original recipe is from, but my cousin Aneesa Karrim gave me this recipe years ago. It is truly flop-proof, a worthy share, and a staple savoury in our home ever since.
Quiche crust:- 1 cup Flour- 3 tablespoon Butter- ¼ teaspoon Salt- 1 tablespoon Lemon Juice- ± 6 tablespoon Cold Water
Chicken filling:- 1 small Onion - cubed- ½ small Green pepper - cubed- ± 5 Cherry Tomatoes - sliced- 1 cup Chicken Fillet - cubed- 1 teaspoon Ground Green Chillie (opt)- 1 teaspoon crushed Garlic- Salt to taste- a dash of Chicken Spice- a sprinkle of Dry Mixed Herbs- a few grinds of black pepper- 1 tablespoon Lemon Juice- ¼ cup Water
Fresh cream mix:- 3 Eggs- ½ cup chopped dhania (coriander)- 1 cup Fresh Cream- ½ teaspoon salt- a few grinds of Black Pepper- a sprinkle of Dry Mixed Herbs- Cheese for the top - grated- Sesame seeds (thill (sesame seeds))
Quiche Crust: Mix flour with butter until like bread crumbs, then and add water little by little to make a soft dough. Roll out dough, place into a greased casserole dish or deep tray going a little up the sides.
Chicken Filling:Heat oil, braise onion and green pepper until soft. Add chicken with lemon juice, water, herbs and spices. Remove from heat, add the Sliced cherry tomatoes and mix in. Spread filling evenly into the quiche crust.
Fresh Cream Mix:Beat the eggs, cream and salt together. Pour over the chicken filling in the quiche crust. Sprinkle the top with grated cheese, and garnish with the herbs, black pepper, and sesame seeds.
Bake at 180⁰C for 30 minutes or until the top is slightly golden. Remove from oven, allow to cool in the baking dish, then slice into squares. Serve as a tea time treat with tea or coffee, or even as a light meal with a salad.
This quiche is absolutely delicious! Enjoy responsibly 😊
INFO & TIPS
- I have never stuck to the recipe when it came to the quantity of the chicken filling. Sometimes I have a lot more than 1 cup of leftover chicken from another meal that I want to use up, then I whip up a batch of these using that.
- I tried steak once, but I didn't find it to taste as nice in a quiche as the chicken did. I have a friend that makes a canned tuna filling for this quiche... she says it's awesome, I haven't given that a shot yet.
