Sorry I didn’t update last weeks weight loss, it was a maintain (which was my own fault for having chippy, full fat coke and numerous chocolate bars). I was also doing exercises each day but I think that’s hindering my weight loss right now so I have stopped for a while to see how the next few weeks go.
So on to this week and I was a loser with 1.5lbs off which is a total weight loss of 10lbs in eight weeks. That is also a dress size and I can feel the difference in jeans I managed to wear over the weekend. I am hoping for the same next week so fingers crossed.
One of my favourite recipes this week was chicken and bacon pie, this is a SlimmingWorld recipe and I absolutely love having this. I don’t even miss having pastry as the mash top is so tasty. It really fills you up and I always serve with a plate full of veggies.
• 4 chicken breast
• 4 bacon medallions
• 2 eggs
• 1 onion
• 2 peppers
• 1 tbsp wholegrain mustard
• 1 tsp Italian herbs
• 240ml skimmed milk
• 240ml Chicken stock
• 4 laughing cow light cheese
• 1 tbsp cornstarch
• Salt and pepper
• Low calorie spray
What to do
Peel and cut the potatoes and boil in a pan of boiling water until tender, drain and then add salt and pepper and the eggs then mash until those lumps have gone.
Spray a frying pan with the low cal spray add the onion and peppers and fry for 5 mins then set aside. Add the chicken and bacon to the pan and fry until browned. Add back the onions and peppers along with the stock, milk, laughing cow cheese, herbs and mustard, stir until melted.
In a separate bowl add the cornstarch and a tiny bit of water into a paste and add to the pan to thicken the sauce.
Pour the chicken mix in to an ovenproof dish or 4 individual pie dishes, spoon the mash on the top of the chicken mix to form the lid of the pie. Spray with low cal spray and put in to a pre heated oven (200c/400f Gas mark 6) for 30 minuets, then put under the grill for a minute to crisp up, enjoy!
If you decide to make this pie I would love to know what you think of it or if you add anything different.
