    I thought I'd give the SW Chicken and Leek Pie a go last night and it was so nice that I had to stop my kids from licking their plates :drool:
    We actually agreed it tasted like Chicken Supreme without the major calories, 0 Syns on EE

    For 4 good eaters, I used:
    The mash:
    500 g potatoes
    150 ml chicken stock
    some parsley
    a tiny bit of ground nutmeg (optional)

    Boil the potatoes, mash them, add the stock, herbs, salt, pepper, seasoning to taste and set aside
    Meanwhile preheat your oven to 180 - 190 C

    The filling:
    350 ml chicken stock
    2 leeks, chopped up
    350 g carrots, chopped up
    150 g peas
    100 g sliced mushrooms
    500 g cooked chicken
    salt and pepper
    tarragon (optional)

    Place the ingredients in a pot and let simmer for about 15 - 20 minutes, until carrots and leeks have softened,
    Add herbs, salt and pepper to taste
    Transfer the filling into a pie dish/oven-proof dish
    Spread the mash evenly over the top, I actually used a beaten egg spread onto the mash for some extra browning
    Bake in the oven for about 20 - 25 minutes, or until the mash (+egg) turns nice and golden
    Serve with vegetables of choice and ENJOY!

    I did this yesterday and found if you mix a little bit of smash into the chicken mix it thickens the stock like a gravy... we also use our cheesey healthy extra on top xx

    Wow - just made this (it's in the oven now). There's loads of it!! I reckon 6 portions with side veggies - or 4 generous portions if that's all we're having. Looks and smells delicious!!

    I had defrosted some chicken and didn't know what to do with it, now I do :) And neither hubs nor the wee one will suspect that it's healthy!

    I made this tonight and it was gorgeous! I added some philadelphia to make it really creamy and used instant potatoes for quickness. And yes, I did lick the plate lol
