Bake for around 30 mins at 160c/140c fan
Remove the beans and greaseproof paper and bake for a further 10 minutes to crisp up the base. Leave the case in the quiche dish until ready to finish.

Melt the butter in a small frying pan and soften the leeks over a low heat for about 8 minutes. Allow to cool
Lightly beat the eggs,
Mix in the milk and yoghurt
Season well with salt and pepper
Fold through the chicken, leek and cheese.
This can be covered and kept in the fridge for up to 24 hours.
Pre-heat the oven to 170C
