Easy make-ahead brunch recipe

This easy chicken quiche was on the menu at a recent sip and see shower I hosted, and it was a hit with the taste buds. To be honest, I was 2 days away from the shower and my plans for it completely changed from a ‘light snacks’ brunch to a full on sit down brunch, and I had no idea what I was going to serve! I pulled out this tried and true recipe and decided to make it.

I do love a good quiche and this one hits the mark in so many ways. It’s very easy to put together {great for morning prep}, it’s a little different in that it uses chicken rather than some of the fattier breakfast meats, and it appeals to most people’s taste palate. I paired it with another vegetarian quiche made with goat cheese and roasted red peppers, and my baked mini party sandwiches here. The menu and shower were a hit and I’ll share more about that a little later.

This is the perfect choice for an entertaining brunch, a bridesmaids luncheon, or family dinner.

Can I freeze it?

To freeze, wrap the cooked quiche with heavy-duty (or double thickness) aluminum foil, or slide it into a freezer bag. Seal, label and freeze for up to one month. When ready to serve, remove from freezer. Do not thaw before reheating. Remove wrap and bake in a preheated 350°F oven for about 25 minutes, or until heated through. You might need to cover it loosely with foil to keep the crust from over-browning.

  1. Would like to pin this recipe but can’t get it to pin from anywhere. Looked on your pins but didn’t find it – thanks

    1. Linda, if you hover over each photo the Pin icon will show up and you can click on it to pin it.
      Hope that helps.

  2. First, this looks delicious. Second, I’m curious: What is a “sip and see” shower? I haven’t heard that term before!

    1. Hi Caitlin, a sip and see is a baby shower AFTER the baby is born – so you get to ‘sip’ and eat, and ‘see’ the baby as well as shower the mom/baby with gifts. We did it this way because the typical shower timeline was during the holidays and too busy for everyone. She also had already had a family shower earlier and received all the “needed” items. This was a nice way for the neighborhood friends to still celebrate her 🙂

      You might also host a sip and see for someone having their second child where they already have the basics.
