This tasty quiche is the perfect way to use up leftover chicken and provides plenty of fresh veggies to make it an easy one-dish meal. Chopped fresh tomatoes sprinkled over the top add just the right zing.
Preheat oven to 375 degrees F (190 degrees C).
Place a steamer insert into a saucepan, and fill with water to just below the bottom of the steamer. Cover pan and bring the water to a boil. Place 1 pound of asparagus into the steamer insert, cover, and steam until just tender, 4 to 6 minutes. Drain asparagus and set aside.
Beat eggs, half-and-half, parsley, salt, white pepper, and green hot sauce in a bowl until smooth.
Stir together cooked chicken, Swiss cheese, Monterey Jack cheese, mushrooms, and green onions in a bowl; mix in flour.
Line a 9-inch pie dish with pie crust.
Spread about half of the cooked asparagus over the bottom of the crust.
Spread about half of the chicken mixture over the asparagus.
Repeat layers of asparagus and chicken mixture.
Gently pour the egg mixture over the layers.
Arrange 3 asparagus spears decoratively on top of the quiche.
Bake in the preheated oven until the filling is slightly puffed and lightly browned and a toothpick inserted into the center of the quiche comes out clean, 40 to 50 minutes.
Sprinkle quiche with cherry tomatoes, if desired.

Eat best breakfast to start the day has become a good habit. It’s a fabolous way to start my day off healthfully. The sugar hit from the fruit wakes me up and bring me power to make on the morning. Sugar is more vilified as the root of all disease, but sweetness is also loaded with fibre, which is great for your digestive system and helps keep you feeling full longer, and less likely grab a side food out of the street food before lunchtime.
Making fruit a morning habit is simple . Easy as put the sweetness in your refrigerator next to the sweet drink or on the bench next to your cereal bowl , or move your coffee maker or tea kettle — somewhere where you’ll find it. Before you eat the rest of your food , eat your fruit. If you’re not usually a breakfast person.
