Chicken Shepherd’s Pie


I’m always amazed at the infinite possibilities for chicken, potatoes and carrots to be combined in a recipe.  This variation is worthy of being repeated often.

If you have cooked chicken stashed away in your freezer, you’re only minutes away from having this dish oven-ready.  (See this post for tips on cooking and freezing chicken.)  Using left-over or instant mashed potatoes speeds things up even more.

My boys loved this recipe and feasted on several helpings each.  Here’s what you’ll need to make it for your family:

  • 3 carrots, peeled and chopped
  • 1 1/2 cups chicken broth
  • 1 cup frozen peas
  • 1 can cream of chicken soup
  • salt and pepper to taste
  • 2-3 cups cooked, chopped chicken
  • 3 cups mashed potatoes (I used instant)

Boil carrots in the broth till tender.  Stir in peas, cream of chicken soup, salt & pepper and cooked chicken.

Pour into a greased 9×13 casserole dish.  Top with mashed potatoes.  Dot with butter.  Bake 400 degrees for 15-20 minutes.

  1. Simple. Yummy. Healthy. What more could a mom ask for?


  2. Is the filling thick like a gravy or more like a soup? My hubs would love this, with green beans instead of peas, god forbid if a pea passed his lips! Thanks!

  3. Your RSS feed doesn’t work for me. Has anyone else mentioned having a problem?

    Thanks for all the recipes!

  4. I have leftover potatoes from Thanksgiving that I was trying to figure out what to do with before they go bad – this will be a great use. Thanks!

  5. I just made this tonight, realizing that I had some left over mashed potatoes. I steamed the carrots, and just added the broth to the chicken soup (I could only find condensed at Whole Foods) and omitted the peas (picky eaters). I tasted it while it was room temp and it was yummy! (Now going to check out your site for a quick and easy chocolate dessert…)

    • I just pulled it out of the oven after 15 min and it’s very soupy and not hot enough, but -to me- it tastes great! I hope my kids like it….
