Chunky Chicken and Potato Pie

This recipe is from a very old copy of Her World Cook Book. I think it's a 1995 issue cos I like collecting them, never knew one day I would be making dishes outta my collections hehe... very unimaginable! I unearthed a lot of such goodies during my long stay at my parents recently.

Again this is another simple but delish recipe. We all loved this very much especially my boiboi. He asked for second helping! Great way to get kids to eat vegetables.

Chicken Pie

Chunky Chicken and Potato Pie

2 medium-sized carrots, thickly sliced
1 small head broccoli, cut into flowerets
(I've also added one packet of baby corn)
400g chicken breast
1 tbsp butter
2 cloves garlic, chopped
1 tbsp plain flour
2 tbsp milk
salt and pepper to taste

Potato topping:
3 medium-sized potatoes
1 tbsp butter
4 tbsp hot milk, usage of hot milk will make your mash potato light and fluffly. Cold liquid will make the mash gluey
pinch of grated nutmeg
salt and pepper to taste

1. Place carrots in a small pan and barely cover with water. Cook until tender. During the last 5 mins add in broccoli. Strain the vegetables and set aside the liquid.

2. Cut chicken into 1 cm slices or cubes. Season lightly with salt and pepper. Heat butter in pan and saute garlic till fragrant. Add chicken and fry till firm. Dust in the flour, cook for 1 min and then add reserved liquid. Cook until sauce thickens.

3. Add milk and pre-cooked vegetables. Season to taste. Transfer fillings into four individual baking dishes or a large one and leave to cool.

4. Meanwhile, scrub potatoes clean and place in a pot. Cover with water and bring to boil. Cook until tender and drain. When cool enough to handle, peel.

5. Mash while potatoes are still hot and add in butter and milk. Season to taste with salt, pepper and nutmeg.

6. Spread mash potatoes over the fillings. Rough up the surface with fork (I've dotted some butter on top). Put to bake in preheated oven at 200C for about 20 mins or until the top is golden brown.
