This was another quick supper idea, based on one of my other recipes… and it was extremely nice!!
1 x shortcut pastry
250g bacon, cubed
1 onion, peeled and chopped finely in a food processor
4 garlic cloves, peeled and chopped in a food processor
250g smooth full-cream cottage cheese
350ml ideal milk
4 eggs, beaten
Salt and freshly grounded black pepper
1 x roasted chicken, skinned, deboned and cut into pieces
Pre-heat the oven to 180ºC.
Roll the shortcut pastry out on a floured surface and line a buttered 28cm quiche dish with the pastry. Prick with a fork and place in the fridge to rest.
Heat a little bit of oil and fry the bacon, onion and garlic till soft. Leave to cool.
Mix the cottage cheese, ideal milk, eggs and paprika together.
Season with salt and black pepper.
Stir the bacon mixture and chicken into the egg mixture and spoon into the prepared crust.
Bake in the preheated oven for 45 – 50 minutes, until the mixture has set and is a caramel colour.
I prefer making this pastry for the crust.
Prepare your own roasted chicken in advance.
