Rotisserie Chicken Crustless Mini Quiche

Makes 2 main course or 4 small dish servings

Preheat oven to 375F

Prepare a 6 to 8” glass or ceramic baking dish, spray very generously with non-stick cooking spray

3 eggs

¼ cup heavy cream

¼ tsp salt

1/8 tsp pepper

1 cup (packed) fresh baby spinach

½ white or yellow onion diced

1 tsp minced garlic

½ c shredded rotisserie chicken

½ cup cubed cheese (I used swiss)

1 TBS oil, olive or canola

Heat a non-stick skillet with oil over medium high heat.  Sauté’ spinach, onion and garlic.  Cook until onion is translucent and spinach is wilted.  Take care not to burn garlic.  While veggies are cooking, whisk eggs, heavy cream, salt and pepper to make custard.

Put chicken in prepared baking pan, add veggies when done, top with cubed cheese and cover with egg custard.

Bake for 25 minutes in pre-heated oven.  Quiche is done when a sharp knife inserted in the center comes out clean.

Variations:  Add sliced mushrooms into spinach, onion mixture and sauté to sweat out excess moisture.

Serve with a tossed salad or fresh fruit.
