Chorizo And Chicken Pie

This is a great meal and it can be prepared the day before which is what I do a lot with meals so it helps when you get home after a busy day. You don’t have to decide what to cook just pop it in the oven.

Serves 4

Ingredients

800g potatoes chopped for boiling.

1 tbsp milk

25g butter

1 onion chopped into small pieces

4 chicken breasts cut into small pieces

2 garlic cloves crushed

1 red pepper chopped into small pieces

170g chorizo sliced

1 tsp paprika

1 tsp chilli powder

500g passata

2oz cheddar cheese grated

salt and pepper

Oil for frying

Method

Place the potatoes in a pan and cook for 20 minutes or until ready for mashing.

Drain and mash adding the milk and butter.

Heat the oven to 200 / Gas 6

Fry the onions in a bit of oil for around 10 minutes on a low heat, stirring occasionally.

Add the chicken and garlic and continue to cook for 5 minutes until lightly browned and sealed.

Add the pepper, chorizo, paprika and chilli and cook for a further 5 minutes.

Add the passata and salt and pepper and simmer for 10 minutes.

Pour into an oven proof dish this can either be 1 large dish or use smaller individual dishes which was what I did.

Spread the mash potato over the chicken and chorizo mixture.

Sprinkle over the grated cheese and bake for 50 minutes.

Serve and enjoy.

Ready to go in the oven
