Top Ranked French Onion Chicken Quiche
Quiche is a favorite in our house. While you might think of quiche as a breakfast dish, we love to eat it for lunch and dinner too. I am always coming up with new quiche flavors for us to try. I made this French Onion Chicken Quiche last week for lunch and it was a huge hit! Chicken Legs & I almost finished the whole thing by ourselves. It was SO good!!!
How to Make Quiche
Quiche is actually very easy to make. Place the chicken, cheese and French fried onions in the bottom of the crust. Next, whisk together the eggs and cream. Pour that over the chicken and bake. Easy!
How do you know when the quiche is done? It will puff up and won’t be jiggly in the middle.
I always use a frozen deep dish pie crust for my quiche recipes. There is no need to prebake the crust. It will bake along with the quiche and be perfect.
The french onion flavor comes from a container of French Onion Dip. You want to look for a sour cream based French Onion Dip. I prefer Kraft, but any of the refrigerated sour cream based French Onion dips will work great. Just use your favorite!
Can I Freeze Quiche?
Absolutely! You can make this French Onion Chicken Quiche ahead of time and freeze unbaked for later. When you are ready to bake the quiche, thaw it completely in the fridge and bake as directed below. I always have at least one quiche in the freezer for a quick meal.
You can also freeze any leftovers. I like to cut the leftover quiche into slices and freeze them. I wrap the slices in plastic wrap and store them in a ziplock freezer bag. Just thaw and reheat in the microwave when you are ready to eat.
What to Serve With Quiche?
We love this French Onion Chicken Quiche for lunch or dinner. All you need is a simple salad or side dish and you are set!! Like I said, the two of us almost finished off the quiche by ourselves. You might want to double the recipe if you are feeding a crowd! It goes FAST!
