Chicken and Broccoli Quiche

Chicken and Broccoli Quiche



I know quiche doesn’t seem like the most kid-friendly food, but my boys actually LOVE this recipe…as in, they actually ask for it!  And I love that it is made with milk instead of cream or half-and-half, which means fewer calories/fat.

 

It takes about 15 minutes to throw together and then just pop it in the oven for a hearty meal…any time of day!  We typically eat it for dinner, but it would be great for breakfast, brunch, or lunch!  :)  If your family isn’t crazy about broccoli, you could always add a different veggie like spinach or red/yellow peppers.

Can of Chicken (or 1 full breast, cooked and shredded)

    Hi – I’m definitely going to try this. It looks delicious. You might want to edit your ingredients to include the 1/2 onion though. I don’t think it was listed. Thanks!
