Creamy Chicken Veggies In A Puff Shell

Creamy Chicken Veggies In A Puff Shell

I used to cook this when my kids were just little ones. My son adores white creamy sauce with lots of cheese. I don’t blame him, I think most of us love white sauce and in my case I can indulge and eat …but my body will react differently..I will get bigger and that’s bad. One time, inside the train, an elderly woman offered me her seat … I declined of course with kind words and a smile. I was sure she thought I was pregnant. Oh my… I was not pregnant…I just looked like a pregnant woman! It was so embarrassing and funny but it made me act on it. I tried to lose some weight and I just did… oh well, yeah for a time.. nowadays…my goal is again to lose weight…the quest to lose weight is really never ending.

For this recipe, I used puff pastry and I just bought one in a grocery store. It saved me time and energy. I would love to make my own but I am a working mom and since this is quite an easy recipe therefore I sticked to my guns..using store bought pastry was the best option. Honestly it was fun to do this. This is now a mainstay in my kitchen. Whenever I ran out of idea, I will just resort to it. Here’s a link that I found in  You Tube. This is where I got my knowledge in making perfect pastry puff shells.  http://youtu.be/bn9jqA6Sh1I
