Posts Tagged ‘swede’

I use the term “pie” in the way you would with a “shepherds pie” or a “cottage pie”, but the real description of this would be: chicken, bacon & mushroom pie with a cheesy carrot & swede mash topping!

This was a throw together meal I made the other day and it was delicious!  Very flavoursome and I would do it again in a minute!  The only thing I might do differently next time, would be to add a couple of potatoes to my mash, to give it a bit more consistency.

Ingredients (Serves 3-4)

5 carrots, cubed

half a swede, cubed

3 potatoes, cubed (for next time!)

20g butter

50g cheese (I used mature cheddar)

2 chicken breasts, diced

184g bacon (I used smoked), diced

200g closed cup mushrooms, chopped

1 medium onion,  diced

2 cloves garlic, crushed

350ml chicken stock

1-2 bay leaves (I used 2, but will try 1 next time)

splash of worcester sauce

Directions:

Boil your carrots, swede and potatoes in a large pot.

Fry the chicken and bacon, until browned.

Add the mushrooms, onions & garlic to the pan.

Add your stock, bay leaves, salt & pepper and a splash of worcestershire sauce.

Let it simmer for 30 mins.  Preheat oven to 190 degrees.

Mash your carrots, swede & potatoes together, adding butter and your cheese.

Remove the bay leaves, then pour your chicken mixture into a ovenproof dish, then top with your mash.  Score a fork across the top of the mash to neaten and flatten out.

Bake in the oven for 30 mins, or until golden.

And thats it!  Delicious, flavoursome comfort food!  I had some for lunch the next day at work and it was just as good, if not better!
