One or two people have mentioned this, but it's worth repeating: this works really well with the leftover chicken from a Sunday roast. Fry the onion, add the chicken meat, chopped if necessary for a few minutes, then left over veg and gravy, sweetcorn etc.

Really good, I added spinach and broccoli and left out the creme fresh as I didn't have any. It was still delicious and very healthy.

Super easy to do. And difficult to leave if there are left overs! Proper comfort food and the creme fraiche adds a nice flavour to the mash.

Love this recipe! Much tastier than you expect. Always empty dishes afterwards. Very simple to make and ingredients are usually ones you would already have at home which is a bonus! I always add bits of all sorts each time I make this and have never been disappointed. Brilliant that its also freezable.

Loved this recipe..I read some of the other reviews and used red onion, mushroom and broccoli in my pie....it was delicious. I made enough for 2 pies and I am very glad I did...looking forward to the 2nd one later in the week!

Really enjoyed this, and so do my friends. Definitely needs pepping up with mustard in the mash and plenty of tarragon. Great midweek recipe.

I took on board some of the comments and added garlic, mushrooms and seasoned well. I didn't have any creme fraiche so substituted with single cream and it worked well. I served with green beans and everyone thought it was delicious. Will make this again.

Made this yesterday and it went down very well. I added some frozen mixed peppers. Will make this again without a doubt. The dog sat patiently waiting for leftovers but she missed out!

I cooked this today and thought it was really easy. I added garlic, carrot and mushroom in case it might be bland and it was lovely.
I also put the chicken mix in a large casserole dish with the mash on top rather than several small and turned out great all round! Yum!

This was easy to make and tasted great but was a little bit dry by the time it came out of the oven.

Healthy, tasty, pie enjoyed by all - I made enough to serve 5 even though it was for two of us, but the plan was to use the leftovers to take to work for lunch over the next few days.

It didn't last more than a day and half, it was so nice. I recommend seasoning the mash (I used salt and pepper) and add half tin of chopped tin tomatoes to the fried onion and chicken. I also threw in a few chopped leeks from the garden for good measure.

This was a quick and easy dish to make but I wasn't completely blown away by it. Following previous advice I added mushrooms, peas and seasoned well but it was still a bit boring and bland. I will probably make it again but won't be in any great rush to do so.

Love, love, love this in our house! I add wholegrain mustard and season quite well, or it can be a little bland. Makes a super pie with pastry, as well. Good comfort food and a nice alternative to cottage pie.
