How amazing does this Chicken and Spinach Quiche look?
Pastry is something we don't hear off too often within Slimming World, most of us avoid it because it can be pretty high in syns.
For that reason you will find dozens of recipes for crustless quiches, but what about when you want a crust?
That's where the hash brown crust comes in and it's delicious. If you love quiche with a pastry crust, then you won’t be disappointed with this hash brown crust.
Yummy flavour of chicken with spinach, in a cheesy quiche filling with a crispy potato crust, what more could one ask for.
It is great dish for packed lunches or days out etc because it can be eaten hot or cold.
I like to make it in a springform 8 inch spring form pan, with this pan, you will that you will get nice height to the quiche. But if you don’t have one of those, then a large round quiche type dish will work too.
I like to serve this with a mixed salad of baby greens, julienne carrot, cucumber and red onion. It is also great with a side of my low syn ranch dressing

Thank you so much for this lovely recipe. My first time making quiche and I've made it 3 times in 3 weeks. Kept the basic recipe but also used quorn and added more speed and have also tried Pease Pudding crust. Whatever way it has still tasted beautiful.
This looks fantastic. Do you reckon I could use quark instead of cottage cheese?
Made this for theb1st time tonight and it was actually really tasty... had it with a pile of veg and very filling
is it suitable for freezing??
