Posted 2017-11-08 by finyfollow

This turned out really delicious - flavoursome, creamy and I guess it is a chicken version of Shepherds Pie!

I did not have to cook any other vegetables as all the vegetables were in the meal.

Preparation Time: 35 minutes
Cooking Time: 1 hour 15 minutes
Serves: 4

1 tbsp Olive oil
10 g butter
600 g chicken thigh fillets, trimmed, cut into 4 cm pieces
1 leek, trimmed, halved and sliced
100 g bacon rashers, chopped
140 g mushrooms, sliced
¼ cup dry red wine
Bit of plain flour
½ cup chicken stock
About ½ cup cream
50 g spinach
For the potato topping
700 g potatoes, peeled, chopped
50 g butter, chopped
¼ cup milk

For the potato topping
  • Make the mashed potato topping by cooking the potatoes for about 15 minutes or until they are tender. Drain

  • Return to the pan, add butter and milk, and mash until smooth.

  • Meanwhile, preheat the oven to 200°/180° fan forced.

  • Heat oil and butter in a large deep frying pan or wok, over a medium to high heat.

  • Cook the chicken in batches, for 5 to 6 minutes or until browned.

  • Transfer to a deep 1.9 litre capacity baking dish or Corning Ware.

  • Add the bacon to the pan and cook for a few minutes. Then add the leek and cook for about 5 minutes or until the leek has softened.

  • Add the mushrooms, and cook for about 5 minutes or until almost tender.

  • Add the wine and bring to the boil for about 2 minutes.

  • Add the flour, cook stirring for a minute.

  • Gradually stir in the stock and cream and bring to the boil.

  • Remove from the heat, season with salt and pepper as desired.

  • Place the spinach over the chicken in the dish .

  • Pour the cream mixture over the spinach.

  • Stir slightly to combine.

  • Top evenly with the mashed potato.

  • Bake for about 30 minutes or until it is golden and the chicken is cooked through.

  • Stand for several minutes before serving.
