Chicken Shepherd’s Pie
Gluten Free Living – 2020
Chicken Shepherd’s Pie is absolutely awesome! No kidding. This fantastic version of Shepherd’s Pie will knock your socks off. It has a delicious bottom layer made with chicken, carrots, peas, corn and green beans. The top layer uses mashed potatoes and two kinds of cheese. It’s absolutely superb. It sure met my son’s standard of approval. 🙂
I had some rotisserie chicken that needed using up after my son and his wife brought us Babe’s chicken for dinner one Sunday. I also used up some of Babe’s creamed corn and seasoned green beans in this recipe. Boy, was it great. I piled on the potatoes because we like a huge layer of potatoes with Shepherd’s Pie. But you can decrease the amount by half if you prefer a thinner layer.
Chicken Shepherd’s Pie is one of those recipes that your family will enjoy so much, they will want you to make it often. It’s a great entree to make when you have a lot of leftover veggies. Just add everything! 🙂 If you enjoy Shepherd’s Pie, this lovely chicken version is one that can’t be beat.

(My own concoction)
Chicken Shepherd’s Pie is amazing comfort food on cold, winter nights.
I mounded up the potatoes because we enjoy a lot of potatoes with Shepherd’s Pie.
While this entree takes a bit more work than some recipes, it’s so good, even as leftovers, that your family will request it often.
Mouthwatering. Irresistible. Fantastic!
