Roast Dinner Pasties - Pinch of Nom Slimming Recipes

For the full list of ingredients and comprehensive instructions, please see the recipe card at the end of this post. Before you scroll, there’s important stuff to know in the blurb!

Tender chicken breast, tasty veggies and a rich gravy sauce, all wrapped up in a crispy ‘pastry’ tortilla. These Roast Dinner Pasties make your Sunday dinner go even further with a tasty twist on a typical pasty.

Low fat tortilla wraps are a surprising substitute for pastry as they turn crispy and golden brown when baked in the oven, while being able to seal in lots of delicious filling. We’ve included the veggies in the recipe, but the beauty of this dish is you could use your leftovers and pretty much anything will work! Try it with cooked veggies, chicken and stuffing, pork and a dollop of apple sauce: the possibilities are endless! Dish up alongside crunchy steamed veg for dinner, or for an easy and indulgent lunch.

To keep it light, we’ve used our own gravy recipe, but you could use instant or whichever you prefer, just remember to check the nutritional info.
