Check out our Easy Peasy Chicken Pie recipe from our first book Leaner, Fitter, Stronger!
Ingredients (serves 4-6):
- 800g sweet potatoes, peeled and cut into chunks
- 40g butter
- 1 tablespoon olive oil
- 6 chicken thighs, chopped into large chunks
- 1 x 480g bag prepared veg
- Jelly chicken stock pot
- 1 tablespoon of cornflour, dissolved in 2 tablespoons of water
- Sea salt and freshly ground black pepper
- Preheat the oven to 180C/Gas 4
- Boil the sweet potatoes for 12-15 minutes until tender. Tip into colander to drain and leave for 5 minutes to steam dry. Transfer to a large mixing bowl and mash, adding the butter and a good amount of salt and pepper, then set aside.
- Heat the oil in a pan set over high heat and fry the chicken until browning on the outside. Meanwhile, fill a deep baking dish half full with prepared veg. If you come across any huge florets of broccoli or cauliflower, chop those in half to speed up cooking. Tip in the browned chicken and any juices from the pan and mix together with the veg.
- Add the stock pot to the pan the chicken was in and top up with 450ml of boiling water. Stir over the heat until the stock cube has dissolved, then add in the cornflour and water mixture. Cook for about 5 minutes until the liquid thickens to the gravy.
- Pour the gravy over the chicken and veggies in the pie dish until the liquid comes to the same level as the fillings (don’t add it all in if there’s too much). Spoon the sweet potato mash over the top and ruffle it up a bit on the top so its not completely smooth.
- Bake the pie in the oven for 40 mins or until the chicken and the vegetables are cooked. The sweet potato won’t go brown like standard mash, but may start to blacken along the ridges where it has been ruffled up.
