Crustless Chicken ‘Pot Pie’

with Sour Cream Mashed Potatoes

Cooking time

35 minutes




710 /serving

For this labour-saving take on a cottagey classic, we replaced the crust from chicken pot pie with something special. Mashed potatoes, riched up with sour cream and butter, put a lid on this cozy casserole. (You may get a call from a shepherd, looking for his pie.) Underneath, there’s reams of tender shredded chicken simmering with carrots, celery, onion and peas in a demi-glace sauce thickened with a flour-based spice blend for the ultimate in coziness and comfort.

Cook & shred the chicken
Bring a medium pot of salted water to a boil. Pat the chicken dry with paper towel; season with ½ the spices and S&P. In a large, oven-safe pan, heat a drizzle of oil on medium-high. Add the chicken* and cook, 4 to 6 min. per side, until browned. Add ¼ cup water and cook, scraping up any browned bits, 1 to 2 min., until cooked through. Transfer the chicken and any liquid to a bowl. Reserve the pan. Using two forks, shred the chicken.

Make the mash
Meanwhile, peel and medium-dice the potatoes. Add to the pot of boiling water and boil, 14 to 16 min., until very tender. Reserving ½ cup cooking water (double for 4 portions), drain and return to the pot. Off the heat, add the sour cream and 1 tbsp butter (double for 4 portions). Mash, gradually adding the reserved cooking water until you achieve your desired consistency; season with S&P.
