This delicious quiche features chicken, spinach and cheddar cheese, but you can use Swiss cheese if you'd like. Field editor Barbara McCalley of Allison Park, Pennsylvania shares the recipe and notes, "This quiche is easy to prepare and cuts beautifully."

Ingredients

  • Dough for single-crust pie
  • 1 cup shredded cheddar cheese, divided
  • 1 cup diced cooked chicken
  • 5 ounces frozen chopped spinach, thawed and squeezed dry (about 1/2 cup)
  • 1/4 cup finely chopped onion
  • 2 large eggs
  • 3/4 cup 2% milk
  • 3/4 cup mayonnaise
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/8 teaspoon pepper

Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 350°. On a lightly floured surface, roll dough to a 1/8-in.-thick circle; transfer to a 9-in. pie plate. Trim crust to 1/2 in. beyond rim of plate; flute edge. Sprinkle 1/4 cup cheese into crust.
  2. In a large bowl, combine chicken, spinach, onion and remaining 3/4 cup cheese. Spoon into crust. In a small bowl, whisk eggs, milk, mayonnaise, salt and pepper; pour over chicken mixture.
  3. Bake until a knife inserted in the center comes out clean, 40-45 minutes. Let stand 15 minutes before cutting.
