  • Let the puff pastry sheets thaw. Turn on the oven to 220 degrees and grease the quiche mold(s) with butter or oil and line them with the puff pastry.
  • Bring the stock to a boil in a saucepan. Cook the chicken breast in stock for about 15 minutes until the chicken is cooked through. Then pull the chicken apart with 2 forks.
  • Chop the onion and cut the leeks into rings.
  • Heat some oil in a large frying pan or skillet. Saute the onion until translucent. Then add the leek and 2 tablespoons of stock from the other pan. Fry the leek until it is soft.
  • Then add the crème frache, the pulled chicken and the peas and stir well. Season with salt and pepper.
  • Beat the eggs in a bowl and add the grated cheese.
  • Fill the quiche mold(s) with the chicken-vegetable mixture and pour the egg over it. Then bake the pie(s) in the oven for 25 – 45 minutes (depending on the size of the mold you have chosen) until the egg is cooked and the puff pastry is golden brown.
  • Let the pie(s) cool briefly and serve immediately.
