A reader wanted the recipe for his favorite dish at a local restaurant, and the food guy obligingly printed it. The photo looked delicious, so I read the recipe.
It was an appetizer, chicken in puff pastry. As I read this list of ingredients I wondered if this recipe served four, but no, it was for one.
Ingredients included 4 ounces of chicken breast, 1/2 cup broccoli, 1/2 cup mushrooms, 1/2 cup diced tomatoes, and of course puff pastry. Then some cream sauce, one serving of which seems to contain 4 ounces of heavy cream among other caloric things.
No wonder the reader finds this recipe "unforgettable." It has enough food in it for an entree, with a bit to spare. But I suspect he orders a main course too. So why are Americans overweight?
