Chicken, Courgette and Tarragon Quiche

It's that time of year again. Courgettes are in full flow and I am eating them with everything, although with doing WeightWatchers this year I have been able to palm some off on the ladies there as well as my neighbours! The original recipe for this doesn't include the courgettes but I couldn't see a reason for not adding them so I did! I took this quiche on a picnic and had it with the beautiful salad at the end of this post which used flowers from my garden as well as salad leaves and looked (and tasted) fantastic. I included nasturtiums, violas and marigolds in the salad.

Chicken, Courgette and Tarragon Quiche (adapted from WeightWatchers Ma Boite a Fiches Recette)
(Serves 4)
(4 WW ProPoints per serving)

cooking spray
2 chicken breasts, cooked
1 large onion, chopped
2 courgettes, chopped into rounds and then the rounds into halves
2 tbsp tarragon, chopped
2 eggs
2 tbsp creme fraiche
80ml skimmed milk
salt and pepper

Preheat the oven to 200C.

Heat a frying pan and spray with cooking spray. Cook the onions for 5 mins until they are translucent and starting to brown. Add in the tarragon and cook for 1 more min. Shred the chicken. Put the onion, tarragon and chicken in the bottom of a quiche dish

In a bowl beat the eggs with the milk and the creme fraiche and pour into the quiche dish. Bake in the oven for 15 mins and then serve with salad.
