Chicken Quiche Recipe

How hard is it to find the perfect companion? Our favorite quiche recipe will lead us through the treacherous journey of fillings embracing chicken quiche.

There are infinite things in this world. Or rather as finite as our ever-expanding universe. How far it can go, we may never know but it doesn’t really matter as long as we can enjoy the ride under the stars.

Not all journey made equal though. It’s important to choose the right companion as traveling is not always just sipping cocktails and dancing in the moonlight. There are some rough terrains to wade through under the scorching sun and little hope for ice cubes into our water bottles.

Not like fighting through the lush jungle would be much easier, especially when all things out there solely exist to kill us or at least to do some harm.

Are we locked in or locked out?

Under such circumstances choosing the right companion could make a difference between life and death. But we don’t have to reach into so far for extreme situations to make a point.

There are more relaxed environments where having a good companion makes an enormous difference. Just imagine, a not so long ago unimaginable scenario where we are locked together with someone for weeks on end.

It’s like having the same dinner day after day after day. Even if we are completely numbed our taste buds and strictly eating to nourish our body, it will go through various emotional states on such a journey.

Who to trust?

As always though, everything comes down to human psychology. Choice plays an important part in our life and we behave completely differently, one would say even irrationally when there’s not allowed to do whatever we like, especially if we don’t fully understand the reasoning behind it.

Not like we would need credible explanations about anything once our trust is gained. Although, we like to say that trust must be earned, and we may pride ourselves as some who can see into one’s soul manipulating our subconscious, is as easy as preparing dinner for one.

The same way as some people are naturally talented in choosing the right ingredients to find balance in dishes, there are people who seem gifted in achieving success by gaining others trust.

Who are we?

But as cooking can be taught and learnt through a bit of practice, successful communication techniques can also be picked up and applied to persuade fellow human beings to accept our point of view.

It seems that our mind is our worst enemy after all. We instinctively press against anything that comes from and mistrusted source, no matter how reasonable is, and follow any gibberish that comes from someone, we trust. To make matters worse, we can be manipulated without even recognizing it by simple body language and careful selection of words.

It’s not the most sensible quality for a species that is tasked to rule over all the other living things in the world, but so far it worked. Or at least we are still alive and multiply, although there are not many other spices can live to tell the same story.

How to master the world?

With a bit of luck, we are even going to be an interplanetary species soon, given that we don’t fail to pick the right company for the journey.

At first sight, choosing the right kind of qualities may seem important as it is when picking ingredients for a dish. Later we will realize that balance is a much more important property of any successful venture than its raw building blocks.

Balance will smooth out rough edges, slow down the rushing stream of thoughts and pull down any overinflated ideas to the level of reality.

Although balance can be achieved by blindly mixing the ingredients together, mastering balance can only be achieved by understanding its foundations and bending their properties to our will, reaching worlds unimaginable before.Chicken quiche recipe - SunCakeMom

How to make Chicken quiche

Crust

  1. Put flour, butter, egg, salt and the water medium size bowl.Flour-egg-butter-honey-gp-SunCakeMom
  2. Work the butter and egg into the flour until it comes together by hand. A lot depends on the moisture content of the flour. If the dough is too dry and flaky, pour a little bit more water over the mixture. If it still sticks to the bowl or onto our hands after ten minutes of kneading then add a bit of more flour to it.Butter-egg-flour-water-gp-SunCakeMom
  3. On a lightly floured surface, roll the dough into a circle shape, the  size of our baking tray.Pie-crust-process-gp-SunCakeMom-3
  4. Place dough onto the tray, fit or tweak it if needed.Pie-crust-process-gp-SunCakeMom-4
  5. Put a heavy round object on top of the dough to keep the crust down or use pie-weights if available.
  6. Place it in the pre-heated oven for 15 minutes until the crust hardens then remove the weight.Pie-crust-process-gp-SunCakeMom-6
  7. Poke the dough with a fork. Pie-crust-process-gp-SunCakeMom-7
