This a fabulous one-pan meal. Serve with a salad and French bread. Just use left over fried, baked, or grilled chicken. You may substitute your family’s favorite vegetable in place of corn. Potatoes and roasted garlic can be done 1 to 2 days ahead. If preference is to use dried spices, then use 1/2 teaspoon each of thyme and rosemary. Use any cheese of your choice.

  1. My family & I loved this. I actually forgot to add any seasoning (salt pepper rosemary & thyme) and it was still delicious. I added fresh mushrooms and frozen peas just because I had them. The potatoes were quite runny; I will decrease the liquid in the potatoes next time. We all agreed that it - Read more ...
  2. Great recipe I did add some changes too! I did not do the roasted garlic. I cooked my chicken in a pan with some water to keep it moist; meanwhile I chopped 1/2 onion 1/2 bell pepper and 4 strips of bacon. Sauteed together until onion softened. added some chopped garlic. Chopped my chicken with - Read more ...
  3. i added french cut beans instead of red peppers. after reading a few of the posts that the casserol was bland... i decided to combine the vegetable, chicken and herbs with 1 can of cream of mushroom soup. it was phenomenal this way since chicken is kind of a dry meat. lastly, i didn't roast - Read more ...
  4. Delicious! My family thoroughly enjoyed this dish. I didn't have the spices that the recipe called for so I just used my own and it was great!
  5. i wasnt very impressed with this recipe. I didnt like the texture it felt mushy( however this might have been my fault...) and it was pretty dry and bland when it was finished. i like my shepards pie to have some juice enough of it so you can dip the crust in it to mop - Read more ...
  6. Uh! YUM!! Why this is only four stars beats me! I really loved this recipe! I made this for friends and it's gone and recipe was demanded! YUM! YUM! YUM! All around!! Wonderful for those cold days and nights!!
  7. Very good!! A great use for leftover mashed potatoes. I simmered the chicken with the spices in chicken broth and red wine so that the flavors really soaked in -- this also made the pie extra juicy, which I liked.
  8. I changed this recipe significantly to better appeal to my family, and we really liked the modifications. Instead of corn and peppers, I used green beans cooked with bacon and onions. I also made the mashed potatoes using whipped garlic-flavored cream cheese and milk instead of roasted garlic, butter and milk. (Much easier!)
  9. Surprised at how good this was. I was so tempted to add something to "sauce" the chicken but decided to just follow the recipe. It was very moist and the cheese helped to bind the ingredients. A very satisfying meal.
