Chicken Shepherd'S Pie Recipe @pinch

Thick and creamy, this chicken shepherd's pie is a comforting dish. There are a few steps, but the final result is worth the dirty pots. The chicken and veggie layer is held together with a thick, rich sauce. Shepherd's Pie flavors are similar to a pot pie, but instead of a crust, there are buttery homemade mashed potatoes. A bit of melted shredded cheese is a delicious final touch. I made this last night for the family and they loved it. I was trying to make something like a pot pie without the crust that was simple. I will definitely be making this again. Enjoy!
