Tikka chicken, onion & red pepper quiche

Hello sweeties,

If you are in Paris, for visiting or for living, you should go to Café Lomi. It’s my favourite coffee place. Ok, it’s the only true one I know, but still. The coffee is quality, roasted by themselves and it’s not that expensive. It kind of changes your life to drink good coffee.
 You can also eat on the spot. I recommend their chicken quiche which is just perfect for me. It’s so well seasoned, it’s tasty, generous, fresh, not too salty… Perfect. And so, after eating this jewel, I thought “I need to cook some quiche”. And that’s what I did. Try.

For 4 reasonnable stomachs :

For the shortcrust pastry :

  • 300 g of flour
  • 150 g of diced and softened butter
  • 1/2 teaspoon of salt
  • 8 cl of water

For the  garnish :

  • 4 eggs
  • 3 tablespoons of sour cream
  • 2 chicken breasts
  • 1/2 red pepper (I used a whole one and it was too much)
  • An onion
  • A lemon
  • Tikka spice blend
  • Worcestershire sauce
  • Olive oil
  • Grated cheese
  • Salt & pepper

Dice the chicken breasts and put them in a bowl. Add the desired amount of tikka spice blend, olive oil and Worcestershire sauce. Add the lemon juice and mix it all so that the chicken is well coated by the marinade.

Now, prepare the pastry. Mix the flour and the salt in a large bowl, add the butter and knead fastly until you get some kind of breadcrumbs. Quicky add the water and knead. Flatten the pastry and put it in a pie dish. Prick all over the pastry with a fork, so that it doesn’t swell when cooking. Dispose the garnish on the pastry, sprinkle with grated cheese and pour the egg & sour cream mixture.Quiche pie 8 © WinaQuiche pie 9 © WinaQuiche pie © 10 Wina

My pastry was a little white, but whatever, it wasn’t bad though. Bon appétit!

AGD

Hello sweeties,

This is the time we get fat. As you might have noticed, I am a food lover. If we had freedom of marriage, I would marry food. Our world has a lot of faults, but let’s admit that our food isn’t one of them. And aliens would agree with that.
Fat food is like Love. Tasty, pleasant, generous, abundant, with no limit but cholesterol. It makes you feel good. And I want you guys to feel good. So I decided to share with you a recipe. Let’s call it the AGD, Ameliorated Gratin Dauphinois.

I wanted to eat scalloped potatoes for quite a while and boyfriend accepted that we cook some.

you, I love youBut, if potato is one of the greatest thing in the world, I wanted something between scalloped potatoes and tartiflette (Wikipedia help for non french readers). That’s what we did and it’s been our greatest success in cooking!

thumb deanHere’s the ingredients for 2 great gourmand (or 3 reasonable stomachs) :

  • 700 to 800 grams of potatoes (depends on your appetite)
  • 10 cl of sour cream
  • 50 cl of milk
  • 150 grams of diced bacon
  • An onion
  • Some butter
  • As much grated cheese as you want (we used about 200 grams)
  • salt, pepper, garlic and cumin (this is our exotic touch, but it isn’t necessary and you can replace it by whatever spice you like)

Got it all? Perfect, let’s go!

  • Peel and wash the potatoes and cut into slices (about 3 to 5 mm of thickness).

  • Pour the milk, salt, pepper, garlic and cumin into a pan and bring to a boil.
  • Meanwhile, chop the onion and caramelize in butter. Then add the diced bacon and, once it’s cooked, put aside.

  • In the boiling milk, add the potatoes and let cook for 10 to 15 minutes, the potatoes must stay quite firm. Then remove from heat.

  • In the pan, add the sour cream to the milk, stir and pour it all over the gratin.
  • Strew a few knobs of butter on the top (we put a little too many, half of what we strew should be enough) and cover with a final layer of cheese.
