Gina - Tks for sharing this yummy & easy recipe. i'm concerned that the chicken soup maybe too salty without adding water. how to have it less salty?

We can make our own mashed potatoes? I guess we have to season the mashed potatoes right?

This dish sure looks appealing to children. Smile love

Xan

if you noticed, my recipe has no salt or seasoning added at all as the chicken soup is already salted.

This easy pie is very tasty due to the white onions and frozen veg mix. The soup base compliments everything.

Its one of the dishes I did for the Hi Tea Buffet and one of the first items on the menu that disappeared within one hour!


yummy

yes..more work. If you use potatoes, you have to cook it with the skin on, in hot water for 15 mins. Remove the skin, mash it manually, add salted butter. The salt in butter helps to flavour it. And butter makes the mashed potatoes more tasty and will turn into a nice golden brown when its baked.

For ease, I use mashed potatoes powder.

This recipe was published in Food and Travel magazine in 2006. Can't remember which issue it was. And that recipe, I have added shredded cheese into the mashed potatoes too. yummy

This is similar to Ocean Pies isnt it? Just different ingredients used. I have made the ocean pies numerous times and they are always a hit with the boys.

Hi Gina,
I tried making this pie today by using your recipe for the filling and hugbear's recipe for the pastry and it turned out very well. Thanks Gina for the simple and yet tasty recipe and also to hugbear too.

hi Mo2

thanks. But the topping is a bit pale and looks a bit more hard. My girls like it more creamy so I add more hot water. One other thing you can try is to add shredded cheddar cheese into the topping filling..and stir. then spread on the chicken later to bake.

gives it that nice cheesy topping taste which most kids loves. yummy

Hi Gina,

Ya .... the topping a bit pale, just realise, I forgot to add the butter on the mashed potato. Very Happy

Thanks for the input, maybe next time, I will mixture directly with the shreded cheese.
