Chicken & Pecan Quiche

Tuesday, May 6, 2014

If you follow the blog on a regular basis, you know that we love to eat quiche for dinner. I am always looking for new and interesting recipes. I came across a recipe for a chicken and pecan quiche. It had pecans in the crust. I had a frozen pie crust that I wanted to use up, so I decided to change up the recipe to work with what I had on hand. It turned out delicious. I loved the combination of cheese, chicken and pecans. We both gave this two thumbs up!

Chicken & Pecan Quiche

  1. This is gorgeous!! Looks like we both had quiche on our minds :)

  2. Southern Living? This was the 7th recipe I made in my challenge, and I did the pecans in the crust...but this sounds much easier, with all of the same flavor!

    1. It was Southern Living. I wasn't going to fool with making that crust. Much easier to just put pecans in the quiche mixture.

  3. Looks delish :) Since you love quiche I urge you to try the recipe I have on my blog for a spinach, swiss and bacon quiche. It has tiny little pockets of cream cheese in it. Everybody I've made it for says it is the best they've ever had :)

    1. You had me at tiny little pockets of cream cheese. I'm headed over for the recipe!

  4. I love quiche and a chicken and pecan quiche sounds heavenly. Blessings dear. Catherine xo
