  • Coat an unheated medium skillet with cooking spray. Heat over medium heat. Add chicken to skillet. Cook and stir for 6 to 8 minutes or until chicken is done and no longer pink. Remove chicken from skillet. Return skillet to heat. Add spinach and cook over medium heat for 1 to 2 minutes or until wilted, turning frequently.

  • In a large bowl whisk together the eggs, chicken, spinach, cheese, milk, roasted peppers, thyme, salt, and pepper. Pour egg mixture into baked pie crust.

  • Bake for 40 minutes. If necessary to prevent overbrowning, cover edge of quiche with foil. Bake for 5 to 10 minutes more or until a knife inserted near center comes out clean. Let stand on a wire rack for 10 minutes before serving. Cut into wedges and place one wedge of each of four serving plates (see Tip).
