Easy as pie … not

I am ashamed to admit where today’s recipe is from… Celebrity Diet Now (issue unknown). The recipes do not look like your usual diet staple to me, more like a Paula Deen diet… But if I find a recipe with puff pastry I am happy to try it, diet recipe or not.

For the pie sweat one roughly chopped onion and 200g leeks (cut into thin slices) in some olive oil. Add 300g chicken pieces, 150g button mushrooms and 100g diced pumpkin and stem turnip (German Kohlrabi) each (last two additions are not in the recipe).

Add 2dl chicken broth, 1dl of cream (not useful in a diet and therefore not in the recipe) and bring to the boil. Season with salt and pepper.

Put in an oven proof dish, cover with puff pastry and put it in the oven at 200C for approximately 30 minutes.

Now, my pie really tasted great but looked like %*#¥.

The puff pastry sank into the chicken vegetable mix and was partially soaked. But I look on the bright side: this will give me an excuse to buy a proper pie dish!
