Instructions

Make the Mash
1
  • Preheat your oven to 220°C/200°C fan/gas mark 7.
  • Boil a large pot of salted water for the potatoes.
  • Chop the potatoes into 2cm chunks (peeling optional). 
  • Add the potatoes to the boiling water and cook until fork tender, 12-18 mins.
  • Once cooked, drain in a colander and return to the pot, off the heat. Add a knob of butter and a splash of milk. Mash until smooth. Season with salt and pepper.
Get Prepped
2
  • Meanwhile, halve, peel and thinly slice the onion.
  • Roughly chop the mushrooms.
  • Trim the carrot (no need to peel). Chop into 1cm chunks.
  • Pick the thyme leaves and discard the stalks.
Brown the Chicken
3
  • Place a pan over medium-high heat with a drizzle of oil.
  • When hot, add the chicken, onion, mushrooms, thyme and carrot.
  • Season with salt and pepper. IMPORTANT: Wash hands and equipment after handling raw chicken and its packaging.
  • Cook until the chicken is browned, 10-12 mins (cook in batches if necessary).

TIP: Notice a stronger smell from your chicken? Don’t worry, this is normal due to packaging used to keep it fresh.

Make the Sauce
4
  • Meanwhile, peel and grate the garlic (or use a garlic press).
  • Add the garlic to the pan and fry for another 30 secs.
  • Add 1 tbsp flour (double for 4p) and mix well to incorporate. 
  • Add stock powder, Worcester sauce and creme fraiche to the pan.
  • Bring to the boil, cover and simmer for 3-4 mins, until the sauce is thick. IMPORTANT: Chicken is cooked when no longer pink in the middle.

TIP: Loosen the sauce with a splash of water if necessary!

Bake Until Golden
5
  • Season the sauce to taste with salt and pepper.
  • Transfer the contents of the pan to an appropriately-sized oven dish.
  • Top with the mashed potato.
  • Use the back of a spoon to spread it out. Scatter over the grated cheese.
  • Bake on the top shelf of your oven for 10-15 mins.
Finish and Serve
6
  • Transfer the contents of the pan to an appropriately-sized ovenproof dish.
  • Top with the mashed potato. Use the back of a spoon to spread it out.
  • Bake on the top shelf of your oven until the mash is golden and chicken is cooked through, 10-15 mins. IMPORTANT: Chicken is cooked when no longer pink in the middle.
  • Serve straight from the dish!
