Reduced-Fat Quiche with Chicken Basil and Italian Cheeses

So, today I was on a mission! I wanted to see if I could make a reduced-fat quiche that actually tasted good. I am happy to report that I actually like this one better than the one I made last night!

Here is what I used.

  • 1 9-inch pie crust
  • 4 chicken breast tenders cooked and diced
  • 4 medium eggs
  • 3/4-1 cup fat-free half and half
  • 1/2 cup low-fat cottage cheese
  • 1 cup reduced-fat shredded Italian cheese blend
  • 1/2 tsp minced garlic
  • 1/2 tsp dried basil
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1/4 tsp pepper
  • tomato slices
Poke your pie crust with a fork a number of times and place in a 375 degree oven for about 10 minutes. While your crust is in the oven, take out a large bowl. Add your eggs and half and half, whisk to combine. Now, add the cheeses, garlic, basil, salt and pepper stir well. When your pie crust is done, remove from oven and arrange your chicken in the bottom. Pour the egg and cheese mixture over your chicken. Set you tomato slices on top. Place back into the oven and bake for 45-60 minutes until browned and set.

This has a great flavor and a pretty firm consistency. Give it a try, I think you will really enjoy it!
