Creamy Chicken Pie with Peppers for little ones.



This is yet another "Chicken Pie" that Baby A enjoys. The creamy potato mash topping with stringy mozarella bits and juicy chicken pieces in a mild pepper flavoured gravy will bring a smile to most little faces including fussy ones :)



To Make Creamy Chicken with Peppers Pie
Makes: 2 toddler servings
Ingredients:
Chicken : 2 pieces cooked and shredded
Red/ yellow Pepper: 1/2 finely diced
Butter: 1 tsp
Flour: 1 tsp
Tomato puree: 1tsp
Chicken stock: 1/4 cup

For the Topping:
Potato: 1 large mashed
Philadelphia cream cheese: 1 tsp
Milk: as required
Mozarella: 2tbsps grated


Method:
1. Heat butter in a pan. Add finely diced pepper and fry till soft. Add flour and fry till the flour turns golden brown, add tomato puree and fry for another 30 secs, then add the chicken stock or water 1/4 cup. Allow the mixture to come to a boil. Add the cooked shredded chicken and allow the mixture to come to a gentle boil for a couple of minutes.  Taste for seasoning and turn off the heat. You could add a pinch of black pepper if your child can tolerate spice.


2. To the mashed potato add philadelphia cheese and milk to make a smooth soft mash. Adjust seasoning.
3. In a pie dish pour the chicken mixture, then place mash over the chicken. Place roughly torn mozarella on top. Place in the centre of preheated oven of 180C/ 350F and bake for 10-12 minutes or till cheeses appears lightly coloured and the sauce appears to be bubbling through the sides of the dish.




Serve the pie warm.
