Here we have is this amazing Quiche - made with chicken, mushrooms and mostly all things rich dairy!
The filling for this quiche is very easy to make- won't take you more than 20 minutes, and then additional 10-15 minutes to bake. For an easy or quick way out, it's best to buy a store-bought, Pie Crust and then assemble the quiche at home.
However, if you don't want to do that, and want to make your own Pie Crust, click on the link below.

What is Quiche Lorraine?
A French tart dish having Pastry Crust, filled with meat, cream, eggs, milk & cheese. Traditionally, a Quiche Lorraine is made with chopped bacon. However, this recipe uses Chicken done in Garlic & Butter sauce instead to add that zing to the recipe.
If you're making with bacon please cut and fry the bacon before adding them to the quiche for baking.
Mold Used
If you are making any tart or pie dish, it is best to use molds using removable bases. Irrespective of the size you are making, demolding tart becomes much easier when you can simply pick up the base out of the edges, thus making sure you don't damage this crusted beauty. These molds are available easily on Amazon. Here's the link to the mold I used:

Can I make Quiche ahead of Time?
Yes you may divide your Quiche to two days, upon your convenience. However, this is mostly for the crust part. In order to this, you may prepare your dough, flatten and bake the crust a day ahead and make the Quiche the next day.
In case you are really short on time on the day you plan on serving the Quiche. You may bake it (75%) a day prior and then fully bake it prior to serving, so it regains its freshness.
