This simple keto quiche recipe is perfect for a quick breakfast or lunch. We love to make up a batch of this delicious chicken and asparagus keto quiche on a weekend. That way we have plenty for lunches or breakfasts during the week. The chicken and asparagus paired with the goats cheese and pesto is the perfect flavour combination.
Crustless Keto Quiche
We first fell in love with crustless quiches after listening to Richard talk about making it on the 2 Keto Dudes podcast. If you have not found this podcast yet, make sure you give it a listen. It was instrumental in our keto journey.
You definitely won’t miss the crust with this keto quiche. By taking away the crust it allows us to keep the carbs really low. Can you believe this keto quiche recipe is only 1g of total carbs. Even low carb and keto crusts can make the carbs increase as many of these recipes use almond flour. Going crustless makes it such a perfect low carb quiche.
Since beginning our ketogenic lifestyle we have fallen in love with buying a BBQ/rotisserie chicken and pulling all the meat off. Once we pull the meat off we portion it up into individual portion and freeze. That way we have cooked chicken ready to make a salad or a meal.
Having shredded chicken ready to go, means you can make a quick and easy keto dinner without having to cook up the meat first. We would recommend doing this and then you can easily throw together this low carb quiche.
If you are on a budget and want an even cheaper option that buying the store cooked chickens, you could buy some whole chickens and roast them. This will be a little more time consuming, but will definitely save you some money. Check out how to roast chicken here.
If you are interested in some other ideas for shredded chicken, why not give these a try.
- Have your chicken shredded and ready to go. You can even pre-shred a whole chicken and store it in the freezer.
- It’s much easier if you don’t mix the chicken and asparagus into the egg mixture, but place that on the bottom first and then pour the mixture over the top.
- Definitely make sure you grease the pie dish. We made the mistake of not greasing it the first time we made it. Let’s just say it’s much easier to cut, portion and remove from dish if you grease it first.
- If you are pushed for time and don’t want to make your own pesto, a store bought one will work the same. Just make sure to check the ingredients first. You want to look out for any added sugars and we also avoid any vegetable and seed oils.
- Not a fan of goat’s cheese? Just replace it with some greek feta. It will still be delicious.
- Make sure you let the quiche cool completely before cutting and removing from the dish. This will make it so much easier to take out.
If you love this keto quiche recipe, feel free to experiment with the flavours by replacing the chicken and asparagus with some of the following suggestions.
- Roasted capsicum and feta fritatta
- Swap the chicken for ham and make a ham and asparagus keto quiche
- Swap the chicken and the asparagus for ham and mushrooms. Just make sure you cook the mushrooms first before adding.
- Pizza flavours with pepperoni, olives and mushrooms. These work really well with the pesto as well.
