Chicken Cottage Pie
As some of you may know, i'm getting lazier these days so i thought of making pie without a pie crust ..i dont really have much idea what sort of crustless pie i want to make.. i remember Sonia making something like this before, a cottage pie here but this recipe was not adapted from her blog. I got it from a local magazine after learning that Sonia contributed a few recipes in that issue.. so this cottage pie recipe is one of those. I however made some changes, there are carrots , broccoli, button mushrooms and cauliflower in her recipe but i dont hv any of those, not even one carrot. But i have tomatoes and 1 small can of green peas, so these go in there. A packet of those frozen mixed peas would be good too ( that comes with carrots, green peas and corn ) if you wish, it is always our own choice, afterall the star ingredients here are the chicken and the chicken soup, Thanks for this tasty recipe, Sonia! Sure will making this again in the near future.
Also dont forget to visit my 2 other hostesses, Joyce and Zoe with their savoury pies or tarts. The linky for this theme will be opened from today up till June14, 2014. Happy baking!
