This is a great recipe to use up leftover chicken. It's very cheap to make.I found this in a magazine but I have added my bits and pieces to it. You can change the contents of the pie to what ever you have in your fridge, I sometimes use cauliflower or broccoli and alter the cooking time by a bit. you can also use other things in the mash like carrot or cheese, you would just have to boil the carrot with the potatoes from the start.
