Ready-made frozen puff pastry is a godsend. You want pie? You’ve got pie! This is a simple chicken and leek pie – which normally has chicken filling doused in a rich cream sauce – but I’m trying to lose unwanted kilos eat more healthily, so I’ve left out the rich cream sauce bit.
Okay, so apparently you can get fat-reduced puff pastry as well, but I’m not seriously taking this health kick that far! Gotta show some love here y’know…regular fatty puff pastry it is.
Just to be good, I took out the usual bacon and potatoes and kept the chicken, leek, onion and carrots. Turns out hubby didn’t even notice the difference… Right? There are endless ways to reduce carbs and fat and still enjoy tasty, delicious meals.
But I’m 100% sure that if there was a blind taste test, skinny pie can’t hold a candle to fatty. Just don’t put the two side by side and expect people to choose. Fatty wins – all the time.
