(Serves 6)



500g lean ground chicken/turkey

1 small onion, diced

1 tbs minced garlic

2 tsp old el paso taco seasoning / steak & chops spice / hamburger seasoning (note sodium content in products you choose)

2 tbs worcestershire sauce

2 tbs tomato sauce

1 cup low-fat cottage cheese

¼ tsp black pepper

Pillsbury’s Reduced Fat Crescent Rolls or wholewheat bread dough

1 cup reduced fat sharp white cheddar shredded cheese or reduced fat feta cheese

4 thick tomato slices



Preheat the oven to 180°C. Spray a 23cm round baking dish with nonstick cooking spray and set aside. In a large skillet over medium-high heat, add the ground chicken, onion, garlic and hamburger seasoning. Cook about 7 to 8 minutes until the chicken is browned. Use a wooden spoon to break the meat up as it cooks. Remove from heat. Add the Worcestershire sauce and ketchup to the turkey mixture and stir to combine. Stir in the cottage cheese, to the turkey mixture and combine. Season with the black pepper. Next, line the baking dish with the reduced fat crescent rolls. To do this, start by separating each individual triangle. Then align the long side of the triangles around the edge of baking dish. Slightly overlap the triangles as you make your way around them and fill in the bottom of the dish using remaining triangles. Pinch the seams together. Gently poke a few holes in the crescent triangles with a fork. Prebake the pie crust for 6 to 7 minutes in the oven. Remove the pie crust from oven and add the chicken mixture. Sprinkle the cheddar cheese evenly over pie. Place the tomato slices on top of the cheddar cheese. Cover just the crust with a thin strip of aluminum foil to avoid charring the edges. Bake in the oven for 20 minutes until the cheese is melted. To serve, cut into six slices. *Skinny Mom*



If you cannot find any crescent roll crust, you can substitute it for any reduced fat pie/bread/scone dough. Alternatively make your usual scone recipe but replace the butter with either plain low fat yoghurt or canola oil. It is always better to replace the flour with whole-wheat flour or substitute partly with nutty wheat. Always consider when you change the ingredients, it has a direct effect on the calorie count and other nutritional information. Always try to substitute with something slimmer.
