Ingredients

Method

  • STEP 1

    Ask a grown-up to heat the oven to 200C/180C fan, then boil the carrot and potato whole for 5 minutes, then put them in a bowl of cold water to cool down. When cold, peel them carefully.

  • STEP 2

    Grate the carrot and potato (cut them into chunks first if you are using a rotary grater).

  • STEP 3

    Put the grated carrot and potato in a large bowl, add the melted butter and mix it all together.

  • STEP 4

    Cut the ham into small pieces using scissors or a small knife, then cut the chicken into pieces.

  • STEP 5

    Put the chicken and ham in a pie dish with the peas and cream and give everything a stir.

  • STEP 6

    Spoon the carrot thatch onto the pie and ask your grown-up helper to put the pie in the oven for 50 minutes or until the chicken and topping are cooked through.
