Protein Packed Chicken and Broccoli Quiche

DSC_0680

I love quiche, but I don’t love that most quiche recipes are laden with heavy cream, cheese, and butter.  My recipe is a much lighter version that is packed with protein, so one serving will leave you satisfied.  This recipe can also be made without the crust if you are in a hurry, but if you are like me and prefer your quiche to have a crust, use my pie crust recipe here.
