1cupcooked chicken breastdiced small
1 ¼cupcheddar cheese

¼teaspoonground black pepper
PREPARE: Preheat the oven to 375˚ Fahrenheit. Move the oven rack to the center position.
UNROLL THE CRUST: Unroll the pie crust and line a 9-inch pie plate with the crust. Use your fingers or a fork to crimp the edges of the crust.
ADD FILLINGS: Inside the pie crust add the chicken, broccoli, and cheddar cheese, in that order.
MAKE THE EGG MIXTURE: In a medium mixing bowl, combine the eggs half and half, salt, and pepper. Pour the mixture over the fillings in the pie crust.
BAKE: Bake the quiche for 30-35 minutes or until the top has become slight firm and the center doesn’t jiggle. Check the crust about halfway through to be sure it isn’t getting to brown. If so, cover just the crust with foil. Cool for 15 minutes before cutting into 6 pieces and serving.
