Chicken, Spinach, Feta Quiche-Crock Pot Version (higher protein)
I'm looking out higher protein recipes for those of us doing the leptin protocol.
Spinach, Chicken, Feta Quiche-crock pot version (Very good cold, too)
Serves 8=31g protein per
1 lb ground chicken
10oz package of frozen spinach or cooked fresh-squeezed dry
6oz feta cheese, crumbled @1 ¼ c
1/3c fresh dill or parsley
2T onion flakes, or 1/4c fresh onion chopped
6 large eggs
½ t salt
½ t pepper
Butter 5-6qt crock pot, set to low.
Combine chicken, spinach, feta, dill, and onion; stir until well blended.
Whisk eggs, cream, salt and pepper; add to chicken mixture, pour into crock.
Cook on low for 6 hours. Remove crock from pot to cool a bit, cut in wedges.
For oven, use a 5-6qt casserole, cook at 350F for 35-45 minutes, or until knife comes out clean from center.
