Crustless Chicken Quiche Recipe

Share!

I absolutely love quiches because they are so simple to make, and you can literally throw whatever you have in the fridge into it and make a meal. Crustless quiches are even easier because you don’t have to take the extra steps to either make a crust or make sure to have a store-bought crust on hand. This crustless chicken quiche recipe is super versatile and makes a great healthy breakfast, lunch or dinner option.

A delicious quiche recipe that is filled with tender chicken, sautéed vegetables, crispy bacon and cheese. An easy healthy meal option.

What Is A Quiche?

A quiche is a bit different to frittatas because it contains milk and or cream in it making it more custardy. Quiches normally contain meat, cheese and or vegetables in them. A quiche will normally have a crust as well, but you can easily make a delicious quiche without one. You can serve the quiches hot, warm or even cold. Quiches you several eggs and make a great healthy breakfast, lunch or dinner option that the family will love.

Equipment

Casserole dish: This is a beautiful set of 4 with different colours to choose from. You will need a casserole dish that is approximately 12in by 9 inches for this recipe.

Frying pan or pot: For frying the onions and mushroom first.

Cutting Board: To cut your vegetables on.

Knives: You will need a sharp knife to cut your vegetables with.

Ingredients

Eggs: This recipe does require at least 6 eggs.

Chicken: I generally buy a roast chicken and shred the leftover chicken to put into a quiche. You can use chicken breast or thighs as well and just precook them and shred them.

Bacon: It’s not necessary but does add delicious flavour to the quiche!

Cheese: You can use whatever cheese you like but I highly recommend adding cheese. It gives it a beautiful flavour and also helps to hold the quiche together beautifully.

1 cup of any vegetables you like. I love adding mushrooms and onion to mine.

Spices: I personally use salt, pepper and garlic powder to flavour my quiche.

Cream and Milk: I like to do a mix of both cream and milk. It gives the quiche a lovely custardy flavour and sets beautifully.

    Questions And Answers

    What’s the difference between a quiche and a frittata?

    A quiche has cream and or milk in it making it more custardy while a frittata does not. A quiche normally has a crust as well.

    Why is my quiche soggy?

    Your quiche can be soggy for many reasons. If it didn’t cook long enough it can be soggy. After it comes out of the oven letting it set for 10 to 15 minutes can help as liquid is still evaporating. If you use vegetables with a lot of water content like zucchini and tomatoes it can make your quiche soggy as well.

    Can you use milk instead of cream in a quiche?

    You can use milk instead of cream in a quiche. It might not be as custardy, but it will still set as long as you still add the cheese and the same number of eggs the recipe gives.
