Chicken-Pecan Quiche

This quiche has quickly become a favorite of mine. It truly is dear to my heart and holds warm memories for me and Mr. P. I entered and won a title with the Texas Pecan Growers a few years back and my winnings actually payed for a fantastic 7 day cruise for Mr. P and me! We even stayed in the BIG suite. THE BIG SUITE PEOPLE! Without the children...I can't even begin to tell you how wonderful a time we had. Just the two of us! There are those of you out there reading this that know EXACTLY how we felt. You will love this delectable quiche as well. Close your eyes and pretend you can hear the palm fronds and surf in the midst of your everyday life. A mini-break in your mind, it could work. If NOT enjoy the creamy chicken-pecan filling and savory Cheddar crust of this delectable quiche! Good Luck dear friends and Enjoy!!
