Quirky's Quick and Easy Shepherds' Pie
2 cups of instant mashed potatoes mixed according to package directions
1-2 cups of mixed vegetables ( we used a green bean, corn, and carrots mixture)
1 cup of Diced Chicken ( I used leftovers)
1/2 can of cream of chicken soup
Shredded cheddar cheese
Stir the mix vegetables into the cream of chicken, adding just a bit of water if necessary. It should be a thick mixture. Add any seasonings that you desire...I added a little cayenne pepper to mine after taking Quirky's portion out. Spoon into two medium sized individual ramekins. Top with your mashed potatoes and bake at 350° for about 15 to 20 minutes, or until bubbly and the potato edges begin to brown. Pull out of oven and sprinkle generously with shredded cheese. Place back in oven, with broiler on low, cook until cheese just begins to brown and is melted.
Quirky absolutely loved this...it's like chicken pot pie and baked potatoes all rolled up into one delicious package, and well the cheese was just the "icing" on the pie.
