Chicken n Mushroom Shepherds Pie
I made this yummilicious shepherds pie for dinner last week and the husband truly loved it ;)
There was nothing left at the end of dinner when I actually thought I've made loads and will have leftovers...haha...
You need :
300-350 gm boneless, skinless chicken meat, diced small
1 yellow onion, diced
1 carrot, diced
1 can of button mushrooms, sliced thinly
some olive oil
1 tbsp dried oregano
salt and pepper to taste
1/2 tsp paprika (or more)
1 tbsp flour
1 cup water
5-6 medium size potatoes, boiled, mashed well without lumps
1 tbsp butter
salt and ground pepper to taste
mix together the mashed potatoes with butter, salt and pepper. It has to be smooth. Keep aside.
Heat oil in a non-stick pan. Saute onion till soft, add in carrot. Let carrot cook a bit. Then and add in chicken meat and mushroom. Cook a little and add in the flour. Mix well and pour in the water. Let it cook well. Season with salt, pepper, oregano and paprika. The gravy should be thick, you can add more water while cooking if needed. Turn off fire. Now transfer it to a heavy oven proof casserole, spread it evenly.
Top it with the mashed potatoes, spread evenly, covering well. You can make simple design on the surface with a fork. Then drizzle some olive oil on the surface.
Heat oven 180 C. Bake for about 30-40 minutes. Serve with some salad.
