“I love a good quiche. I had a great one this last Christmas when we visited Amanda’s family in Cape Breton. It was some sort of seafood quiche. I will have to try to get the recipe next time we are visiting. This chicken quiche is a pretty tasty recipe so give it try and let us know what you think.”
