Chicken Mushroom Quiche
A French tart made of pastry crust, filled with chicken, mushrooms, cheese, and savory custard. Chicken Mushroom Quiche is a one-pot meal that works perfectly for those lazy Sunday brunches.
For the crust
- 1 cup all-purpose flour
- 60 gms chilled butter
- 1/2 tsp salt
For the filling
- 1 tbsp olive oil
- ½ cup chicken finely sliced
- 1 cup sliced mushrooms
- 1 medium onion finely sliced
- 2 tbsp ginger garlic paste
- 1 tsp salt
For the custard
- 3 eggs
- 3 tbsp cream
- 2 tbsp mustard paste
- 2 tbsp Worcestershire sauce
- 2 tbsp all-purpose flour
- 1 tbsp cornflour
- 1/2 tsp baking powder
- 1 cup cheese
- 8-10 basil leaves
- 4-5 cherry tomatoes
- 8-10 basil leaves
- Add in the finely sliced chicken and cook for a few minutes.
- Next, add in the sliced mushrooms with a teaspoon of salt. Mix well. Cover it with a lid and cook until the juices dry up.
- Preheat the oven at 180°C. Grease the pie dish well. Roll out the dough. It should not be too thick or too thin.
- Place the rolled-out dough over the pie dish. Press the dough into the pan and the sides with your fingers. Remove the extra dough with a knife.
- Bake it at 180°C for 15-20 minutes until the sides are lightly colored.
- Remove the parchment paper with the weights. Bake again at 180°C for 5 minutes.
- In the meantime, prepare the custard. In a large bowl, whisk together eggs, cream, mustard paste, Worcestershire sauce, all-purpose flour, cornflour, and baking powder. Keep aside.
- To assemble, add the filling into the crust. Make sure you do not de-mould the crust from the pie tin. Top it with a few basil leaves.
- Add in a cup of grated cheese.
- Pour in the custard. Make sure it seeps in well.
- Garnish with sliced cherry tomatoes and a few more basil leaves.
- Bake the quiche in a pre-heated oven at 180°C for 20-25 minutes or until done. Check with a skewer or a knife. It should come out clean.
- Once cooked, remove from the oven and let it stand for a few minutes before you de-mould.
- The Chicken Mushroom Quiche is ready to serve.
- If you do not have baking weights available, you can use dried beans.
