Ingredients

Mini chicken and asparagus quiches
  • 3 eggs
  • 1 tablespoon milk
  • 2 sheets shortcrust pastry
  • 5 (75g) chopped asparagus spears
  • 125 gram (4 ounces) shredded barbecued chicken

  • 1/4 cup (20g) finely grated parmesan

Method

Mini chicken and asparagus quiches
  • 1
    Preheat oven to 180°C (160°C fan-forced). Whisk eggs with milk in a medium jug; season.
  • 2
    Grease a 12-hole (2-tablespoon/40ml) flat-based patty pan. Using a 7cm (3-inch) cutter, cut 12 rounds from 2 sheets of shortcrust pastry; press rounds into pan holes.

    Divide asparagus spears, chicken and chives among pastry cases.

    Top with egg mixture; sprinkle with parmesan. Bake 25 minutes or until quiches are set and pastry is browned lightly. Serve warm.
