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.

About droolfactor

It's all about my gastronomical journeys, and sometimes an inedible thought or two. One of the very nicest things about life is the way we must regularly stop whatever it is we are doing and devote our attention to eating. ~Luciano Pavarotti and William Wright, Pavarotti, My Own Story This is my personal journey where I devote my attention to eating, cooking, experimenting and taking chances. Anything I come across with a droolfactor worth sharing, it's here. I hope you'll enjoy this journey with me.
