Mummy !!! What’s for dinner tonight??? Ughhh… This question that keeps popping up again and again !! Easy I shall say! Are you in a quiche mood? Let’s prepare a leek and chicken quiche!!
It’s true that this recipe actually requires some time, mainly because you have to cook slowly the leeks for 2 hours. 2 hours that will give them a sweet and delicate taste, 2 hours that will make your children really enjoy leek!!
As far as the rest of the recipe is concerned, it’s a piece of cake!
You need a savory shortcrust pastry, I recommend to prepare it the day before, leeks cleaned and cut, grilled chicken and you’re almost there!!
Not bad right? Other options : with bacon, salmon, tuna or just like this.
