This is definitely a very yummy quiche! I have also made this with cauliflower in place of the broccoli. Serve with some Italian bread and a tossed green salad for a light dinner.
2 tablespoons butter
1/2 onion minced
1 teaspoon minced garlic
2 cups fresh chopped broccoli
2 cooked chicken breasts, diced
1 9 inch unbaked pie crust
1 1/2 cups shredded mozzarella cheese
4 eggs, well beaten
1 1/2 cups milk
1 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon black pepper
1 tablespoon butter, melted
1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.
2. Over medium-low heat melt butter in a large saucepan. Brown chicken, add onions, garlic and broccoli. Cook slowly, stirring occasionally until the vegetables are soft. Spoon chicken and vegetables into crust and sprinkle with cheese.
3. Combine eggs and milk. Season with salt and pepper. Stir in melted butter. Pour egg mixture over vegetables and cheese.
4. Bake in preheated oven for 30 minutes, or until center has set.
