Prep Time 30minutes
Cook Time 30minutes
Ø10½" / Ø26cm Baking tray
1⅔cup/ 200g Flour
7tablespoon/ 100g Butter room temperature
¼cup/ 50ml Water
½cup/ 150ml Oil or lard
1head / 200g Onionfinely diced
2Chicken breastsstriped or diced
⅓cup/ 100ml Milk
⅓cup/ 100ml Cream
Put flour, butter, egg, salt and the water medium size bowl.
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.
On a lightly floured surface, roll the dough into a circle shape, the size of our baking tray.
Place dough onto the tray, fit or tweak it if needed.
Put a heavy round object on top of the dough to keep the crust down or use pie-weights if available.
Place it in the pre-heated oven for 15 minutes until the crust hardens then remove the weight.
Poke the dough with a fork.
Put it back into the oven for another 10-15 minutes until slight golden brown spots starts to emerge at the sides.
When it is done, take tray out. Meanwhile the crust is baking, prepare the filling.
Pour oil into a saucepan, heat it up and add the diced onions with half of the salt.
Saute the onion until it gets a glassy / translucent look on high heat for about 5 minutes.
Lower the heat to medium - low and caramelize the onions for about 15 - 20 minutes.
When the nice looking golden brown spots are largely apparent, add garlic, chicken and increase the heat.
Sprinkle another part of the salt on top then saute the chicken until all sides turn white for about 5 - 10 minutes.
Beat the eggs while mixing in the cream and milk. Optionally cheese can be added and cream or milk can be substituted with one another.
Place the chicken pieces onto the pie crust.
Pour the egg-milk-cream mixture on top.
Apply crust protector around the crust, especially if it already has a golden brown color.
Place the chicken quiche into the preheated 350°F / 180°C oven until the middle is set for about 20 - 30 minutes.
