Reduce oven temperature to 350 degrees F.

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.
