Chicken Mushroom Quiche

Real Restaurant Quiche Recipe

This Chicken Mushroom Quiche is a treat for breakfast, lunch or dinner. It is now a favorite restaurant recipe.

You can of course substitute turkey for the chicken if you have left-over turkey to use.

Use different mushrooms to vary the taste results or even several different kinds at the same time. This is great fun.
