Like Mel, I used 4 eggs and 1 cup milk. Because of that, I increased the brown mustard to 1 tsp. I chose colby cheese. The most significant thing I did that added flavor was to use leftover chicken that was baked with lemon and garlic--I even chopped and tossed in the clove of garlic that was baked with the whole chicken. It turned out great--five out of five family members liked it, including the one who wrinkled her nose before the first bite. The only problem was that it was watery and that made the crust a little soggy. Anyone know where the liquid came from and how to correct that? Even so, this is a keeper.


As I was making this, I wanted to add some broccoli and mushrooms, but resisted and made it as written. Having tasted it, I still think it would be better with a vegetable and some mushrooms in it, and probably more mustard and cheese. It's good, but it could be better. I used a regular size pie plate and crust, and it didn't fill it, so there is room for more ingredients.

WOW! This recipe was excellent!!!!! I knew before I even finished preparing that it was going to be great! The aroma was wonderful! I did add just a little more chicken (1/2 cup) to make it a little more hearty and I only added 6oz of swiss so I would have the opportunity to add a good sprinkle of parmesan, ramono and mozzerlla. I LOVE cheese and all these go well together. I highly recommend this quiche. My husband isn't big on quiche because he says it's not "meat and potatoes", he really like this one and he's also the reason for the addition in chicken. Thanks Shannonlia for such a great dish!
