Chicken Quiche


Hi everyone, We are meeting after a very long gap. I came back to India and now setting up my home in the Garden city. The past three weeks was very eventful. The most tiring of all was house hunting. We had seen endless number of flats and after a point both of us were so disappointed and thought we had to settle in with what is available. On top of that 'A' hectic work schedule makes everything even more difficult. Now I am back with internet and things have slowly started settling down. I missed going through each and every one's post and now I am catching up with all the posts which I have missed. I will be posting the recipes which I have tried out in the U.S for some time. Theese days I am not cooking anything fancy in my kitchen. Just the basic things to survive. 

Today I am introducing you to chicken quiche : A baked dish which I was eagerly waiting for during my childhood. Asha chechy ( My mom's sister always makes this for me whenever she comes to my granny's house.) Her  deserts are excellent. All her desert's are super duper hit. In my family everybody looks for deserts after every meal. If not every meal , it's a must have during special occassions. I found the recipe for quiche at swapna's cuisine and followed it to the dot. I liked the fact that She used less eggs for the pastry as well as the filling. The dish was liked by my guests and it will top among one of my favourites.




Ingredients:

For the pastry:

Maida -200g
Unsalted Butter - 75g
Baking powder-1/4 tsp
Salt-to taste
Ice cold water- As Required 

Method:

Sieve maida, salt and baking powder together. Grate in the butter and mix it with the flour with your fingertips till it resembles coarse sand. Add in the beaten egg and water and gather it into a soft dough.
Roll it out on a lightly floured surface and line it in the tin that you will be baking . Whichever tin you are using, make sure the dough comes a little way up the sides, so that it can hold the filling in.

Filling: 

Ingredients:

Boiled and shredded chicken-1/2 cup
Onion- 2 chopped
Milk- 1/2 cup
Cheddar Cheese- 100g 
Beaten egg- 1
Salt and pepper to taste
Oil- as needed.

Method:

Heat oil and slightly fry the chicken til it is golden brown. Add in the onions and fry till onions have caramelized. Switch off the flame. Add milk, cheese, beaten eggs, salt and pepper and mix well.
Pour into the pastry case and bake for 25 mins or till golden brown.
