Southwest VA Apple Chicken Cheddar Quiche Recipe

>> Thursday, October 29, 2009

Here in the mountains of Southwest VA, apples are a main crop. Since our VA bed and breakfast is located in the middle of apple country, of course we have to serve several breakfast dishes that spotlight this wonderful fruit. This fall we have focused on a wonderful breakfast entree, Apple Chicken Cheddar Quiche. Now really, what could be better than sweet apples and tangy cheddar. Since so many of our guests at the Mountain Rose Inn asked for the recipe, we decided to post it for all to enjoy.

Apple Chicken Cheddar Quiche
By: Dora Jane Barwick
Serves 10

5 apples - Granny Smith is my preference
1 Tbsp cinnamon
1 Tbsp sugar
4 Tbsp Butter
4 chicken breasts
1/2 tsp cumin
1/4 cup olive oil
2 cups sharp cheddar cheese
4 eggs
1 1/2 cup heavy whipping cream
Salt & Pepper to taste
1 sheet puff pastry - thawed

Peel, core and chop apples. Melt 2 Tbsp butter in frying pan. Add apples. If apples are tart, add 1 Tbsp brown sugar. Cook on med-low heat until apples are tender. Stir in cinnamon. Remove from heat.

Dice chicken into cubes. Heat remaining butter and olive oil in frying pan over medium low heat. Add chicken and cumin. Cook until chicken is done. Remove from heat and drain.

Spray 9*13 pan with cooking spray. Roll out puff pastry in to 10*14 sheet. Lay in pan. Layer apples, chicken and cheese on pastry. Blend eggs, whipping cream, salt and pepper together. Pour over apples, chicken and cheese. Tuck down sides of dough if needed. Bake at 350° for 30-40 or until set and golden. Serve warm with extra cheese sprinkled on top.

Not a fan of chicken? Just omit the chicken from the recipe and have an Apple Cheddar Quiche instead.

Happy Baking,
Dora Jane
