Good morning everyone!
I’ve been trying to be a bit more adventurous with food recently – by this I mean trying out some more recipes, not suddenly eating locusts etc….
So I have seen many posts about Joe’s Chicken Pie from Joe Wick’s Lean in 15 recipe book and I couldn’t wait any longer to try it out myself.
It really didn’t disappoint!
It was pretty simple to make too, leeks, mushrooms and chicken cooked up in a pan before adding a small amount of double cream, cornflour and some chicken stock and simmering for a while.
Lastly the spinach is added and allowed to wilt into the mixture before adding into a big baking dish and adding the filo pastry sheets to the top. I’ve never made anything with pastry before and scrunching up the sheets was a new experience for me!
Then you simply drizzle a bit of olive oil on top and put it in the oven for 20 minutes.
The first time I ate the pie I had some parsnips and peas to use up so had those, but the ingredients make four portions so I have also had some roast veg (carrots, courgettes and peppers) and also one of the frozen bags of veg that you microwave (peas, carrots and green beans).
I really enjoyed it and I still have one portion left which I am saving for a rainy day when I feel like I need a filling meal that isn’t too stodgy. I added this into My Fitness Pal and each portion was around 400 calories before adding veg, so it’s easily a 500 calorie meal.
Have you tried Joe’s Chicken Pie? Have you tried any other recipes from the Lean in 15 books?
There are so many I want to try but not enough time!!
