Diced Chicken Breast
Mature Cheddar Cheese
KNORR Chicken Stock
Bring a large saucepan of water to the boil with 0.5 tsp of salt. Meanwhile, peel the potatoes and chop into 2cm chunks. Trim and peel the parsnips and chop into 2cm chunks. Add the potatoes and parsnips to the pan of boiling water and cook until you can easily slip a knife through, 15-20 mins. Once cooked, drain in a colander and return to the pan, off the heat.
Meanwhile, heat a drizzle of oil in a large frying pan on medium-high heat. When hot, add the chicken and fry until starting to brown, 5-6 mins, stirring occasionally. While the chicken fries, trim the root and the dark green leafy part from the leek. Halve lengthways then thinly slice widthways.
Stir the leek and dried thyme into the chicken and cook until the leek has softened, another 2-3 mins. Stir in the creme fraiche and chicken stock powder, bring to the boil then reduce the heat and simmer for 2-3 mins. Meanwhile, drain and rinse the sweetcorn in a sieve. Mash the cooked potatoes and parsnips together until smooth. Season with salt and pepper. TIP: Add a knob of butter or a splash of milk to the mash if you have some!
Preheat your grill to high. Stir the sweetcorn into the chicken mixture. Season to taste with salt and pepper then transfer into an ovenproof dish. Spoon the mash on top and spread out so it covers the filling evenly.
Grate the cheddar cheese evenly over then grill until golden and bubbly, 4-5 mins.
Serve the pie and enjoy!
