Smashed Potato

READY IN: 10mins
Recipe by smellycat

This is my own recipe, and I guarentee that it is delicious! It only takes 10 minutes, and is bursting with flavour! I make it whenever I have an extra 10 minutes on hand as a great afternoon snack. This recipe serves one, but you can double or triple the amount to serve for lunch or dinner. Enjoy!

I made this recipe for 2 of us, & did change some things around a bit! Used a large potato, unpeeled, left out the mushrooms, used a cup of diced chicken breast that I'd frozen, & added some peas to the corn & other veggies! That, along with a green salad, made for a nice lunch! [Made & reviewed for one of my adoptees in this Spring's round of Pick A Chef]
