I try to menu plan and only buy the things we need for that weeks meals. I had apple butter pork chops with roasted carrots and zucchini on the menu for that night but when I went to get the pork ready and opened the pack I almost puked from the smell of the meat. I had just purchased the pork the day before and the BB date was Feb. 17, but something must have had the wrong dates.
I had to find something else to make in less than an hour and all that was in the fridge was a whole chicken and ground chicken. As my brother always says, "Winner, Winner, Chicken Dinner!" So by time default ground chicken was the winner ... but what to do with it?
Chicken pot pie ... no pastry ready
Chicken tacos ... DooDoo can't do peppers or tomato right now
Chicken Shepherds pie ... done! DooDoo can eat everything in it and should only take about 45mins.
Here's my version of a quick Dairy Free, Gluten Free Chicken Shepherds Pie
|Potatoes in boiling water|
While the potatoes are cooking brown the chicken, add 1/2 chopped onion and cook until brown.
|Love the colours|
Add frozen veggies, as many as you like. I used a package of mixed peas, carrots, corn and green beans.
|Great on so many dishes!|
|Mashed potato topping|
|Ready for the topping|
In a casserole dish fill with the meat and veggies mixture. Add the mashed potatoes and use a fork to whip up the potatoes.
|Ready for the oven|
|Crispy top and ready to eat!|
DooDoo loved his. I did chop up the chicken pieces and green beans a little smaller but he did good eating it with his hands. Lots ended up in his hair but thats what bath time is for right?!?!
|DooDoo's is ready to go|
If you serve this one up for your little monkeys let me know how it goes! I love photos of kiddo's covered in dinner!
