Curried Chicken Shepherd's Pie

This chicken recipe was quick, easy and delicious!!! If you don't add too much butter to your mashed potatoes, it is healthy too :)
James was a huge fan of this one. I am always excited when there is meals I can make for Haws and I that James can eat too. This one is a winner and I will plan on making it often.

Curried Chicken Shepherd's Pie
1 lrg. onion, chopped
2 celery ribs, chopped
3 TB, butter (you can use less and it still tastes great)
1 c. frozen peas and carrots (I used just peas)
3 TB. all purpose flour
1 tsp. curry powder
1 1/2 c. reduced sodium chicken broth
1/2 c. 2 % milk
2 c. cubed, cooked chicken
2 TB. dried parsley
1/2 tsp. salt
1/2 tsp. pepper
2 c. mashed potatoes (with milk and butter)
1/4 tsp. paprika

In a large skillet, saute onion and celery in 1 TB butter until tender. Add frozen vegetables and remaining butter; cook 2 min longer. Stir in flour and curry until blended; gradually add broth and milk. Bring to a boil; cook and stir for 1 min. or until thickened. Add the chicken, parsley, salt and pepper. Transfer to a 2 quart baking dish (or 9x13). Top with potatoes; sprinkle with paprika. Bake uncovered at 350 for 25-30 minutes or until heated through.

  1. I've got to tell you...I love that you girls are doing this. I grab this book once or twice a week to find something for dinner, dessert or anything in between. Then I check your blog to see if anyone has made it or has any extra tips! I love the book and the blog!!
