"I used leftover roasted lemon chicken, but followed the recipe exactly for everything else. It seemed a little dry and bland to me; I like the idea of adding spinach, mushrooms and/or tomato. I might add some salsa on top of the leftovers to see if that will perk it up."

"Very good recipe. I didn't use the whole onion and I used Extra large eggs since that what I had on hand otherwise made exactly as is. Will make again."

"A little dry. Will play with it because it's a solid recipe. I think the mushrooms and spinach might do the trick."

"Loved this recipe, I to made alterations, try adding spinach and fresh mushrooms. Made for the girls I work with it was so good. deb76"

"I LOVE this recipe!! I used onion powder, but that was the only alteration--it was so yummy. My husband doesn't normally like quiche, but he loved thie!"

Reviewed May. 8, 2009

"I made this quiche the other night, with a few "alterations". It was very yummy. I did not have bacon, so I omitted that and I did not have whipping cream so I just used 1% milk instead. It still set well and I'm sure the fat was cut down by a lot! :) Also, I added fresh mushrooms and tomatoes for a little extra flavor. I did not put in a whole onion either, that always seems like so much! The flavor was delicious though... I love how you can add and subtract different flavors to quiches and they are always so yummy! The chicken I used was just cooked chicken breast, not rotisserie chicken."
