Potato N Olive Quiche

In French cuisine, Quiche is a baked dish which is prepared with pastry crust, also with a base of custard made from eggs, milk or either with cream..Quiche is an open pie which doesnt contain a pastry covering,u can also prepare quiche without eggs just by making a custard base with cream or milk and with grated cheese, this quiche can be eaten warm but commonly eaten cold, this pie suits prefectly for a typical summer picnic..Quiche can be served with salad for lunch while for dinner with soup, its a complete food...They can be either prepared with meats, vegetables or simply with grated cheese..My version of quiche is with potatoes, black olives, chicken chunks, mozzarella cubes prepared with a custard made with cream, i skipped completely the egg as i prepared this quiche with chicken chunks..This is my 2nd entry to AFAM-Olives guest hosted by Me, event started by Maheswari...


1no Pastry sheet
2nos Potatoes
10nos Black olives
1/2cup Chicken chunks
1cup Low fat cream
1/4tsp Dry Thyme
1/4tsp Pepper powder
1/2cup Mozzarella pieces
Salt

Place the pastry sheet in the tart mould, pick the sheet with a fork, keep aside...Slice the potatoes as thin rounds, arrange the potato pieces over the sheet one by one, now springle the chicken chunks..meanwhile preheat the oven to 350F..also add the black olives to the pastry sheet...Mix together the cream, dry thyme, pepper powder and salt, beat everything as creamy custard..pour the custard over the veggies and springle evenly the mozzarella pieces over the veggies..

Bake the quiche for 20-25minutes in middle rack or until the crust turns brown...keep aside and let them cool..Cut them as wedges and serve simply with any salads..
