When I got back I was inspired to try something different with my normal quiche recipe. At the Dim Sum restaurant we went to 456 Shanghai Cuisine they had a dish they called a scallion pancake. It was a mix of a crepe/omelette with plenty of scallions and a shredded pork filling with a hint of sesame and teriyaki sauce.
2 small chicken breasts
1 teaspoon minced onions
1 cup water
cook these and after shredding chicken add:
2 tablespoons teriyaki
1 teaspoon sesame oil
1 teaspoon chili oil
1 tablespoon toasted sesame seeds
1/8 cup fresh chives
2 tablespoons butter
1/8 cup flour
3/4 cup milk
4 tablespoons teriyaki
1/2 teaspoon chili oil
1/4 teaspoon onion powder
1 1/2 tablespoons brown sugar
First I cooked two small chicken breasts in the crock pot. I put them in frozen and added a bit of sesame oil, chili oil, teriyaki sauce, minced onions and about 1 cup of water. I cooked them on low for about 5 hours.
Next I shredded the chicken with a fork and mixed in about 2 tablespoons of teriyaki, 1 teaspoon of sesame oil, and 1 teaspoon of chili oil.
I picked a large bunch of chives from the garden and chopped up about 1/8 cup and added them to the mixture, along with 1 tablespoon or so of toasted sesame seeds.
For the quiche base I melted the butter on medium heat
Added the flour
And then the milk
I kept it on medium heat, whisking the whole time til it thickened.
(a little less than a normal quiche base would, because there was less flour added)
Then I added the eggs and whisked them well. I also added a teaspoon of chili oil.
Then a lot more chives. Maybe another 1/8 cup.
I greased the pan with sesame oil and added 1/4 of the mixture.
Then the chicken
And finally the remainder of the quiche base. I put it in the oven at 325 for 1/2 hour.
At that point I took it out, brushed on some more sesame oil and put it back in for another 20 minutes. The last 10 minutes I turned the heat up to 350 to brown it slightly.
I mixed together a sauce to pour over the top. I microwaved it for about 40 seconds to let the brown sugar dissolve.
Bubba saw me take it out of the oven and insisted that it was cake. I told him it was not cake and
I gave him a piece but I was pretty sure how it would go.
Luckily for him I made some peanut butter banana bread muffins that day, so he could get his "cake" after all.
My husband and I thought it was delicious though. Just what I was going for. It had the essence of the scallion pancake and also reminded me a lot of egg foo young.
