Chicken Flan

This is a wonderful all year round recipe.  In Summer,  served with a side of salad.  In Winter some crusty bread or steamed veggies make it a hearty meal.

4 eggs
1/2 C plain flour
1/2 C grated cheese
1 small chicken fillet cubed and cooked or 1 cup of leftover chicken
1 onion finely diced or 2 teaspoons of dried onion flakes
1 medium tomato finely cubed
Zest of 1 lemon
salt and pepper to taste
1 3/4C milk
Dried or fresh parsley
Small sprinkling of garlic powder or granules
2 – 3 leaves of Silverbeet finely chopped – optional

Preheat oven to 180 degrees Celscius

Combine all ingredients in a bowl and mix well
Pour into a greased quiche dish and sprinkle with a little extra cheese..
Cook for one hour until golden on top.
Slice and serve with veggies or salad.

Freezes well.


*  Any leftover meat can be added instead of chicken.  I've used roast beef and lamb with great success.

*  Leftover roast veggies can be added instead of the tomato and lemon zest..

*  This can be made in muffin tins as a lunchbox treat

With crusty cheesy bread made by Megan

Straight out of the oven


  1. Oh Yum Wendy,

    I'm so glad you posted this recipe, can't wait to try this.Could i use leftover cornbeef as i have some in the fridge?

    Hope Darrens party went well as my sons did, xxx

    1. Yes you can use corned beef.

      The party went well but I'm very tired. I did think of you during the day xoxo.

  2. Another great recipe to add to my menu plan. Thank you Wendy, it does looks delicious! I think this would go well combined with tomato soup, yum!


  3. How big is your quiche dish?

  4. hello wendy,
    thanks for this wonderful recipe!!!!
    wish you a wonderful week,

    1. Hi Regina. It's great to hear from you again. I hope all is well in your world xoxo

  5. Thank you Wendy I will be making this. I agree with Tania about it going with Tomato soup, that sounds good! Or just relish, I love relish!
    I have a visitor coming for lunch so I am going to make this. Thank you. xxx

  6. Cooked this tonight using roast lamb. I didn't have any onion or tomato so I used spring onions from my garden and a Tablespoon of tomato relish (Cath's recipe ). It was delish. Even DS2 ate it.

  7. I have a bigger family so I did 6 eggs and one cup of flour
    Worked well, added grated zucchini and corn.
