http://lekkerreseptevirdiejongergeslag.blogspot.co.za/2015/10/chicken-cottage-pie.html

2 tablespoon flour
2 tablespoon butter, softened
3 cups onions, chopped
1 cup carrots chopped
1 cup peas
1 packet mushrooms, thinly sliced
1 kg ground chicken (afgekook en gevlok sal ook werk)
4 tablespoons tomato paste
2 cup beef broth (2 blokkies beesaftreksel aangemaak met 2 koppies kookwater)
2 teaspoons parsley (fresh or dried)
1 tablespoon thyme (optional)
5 to 6 cups mashed potatoes
2 cups cheddar cheese, divided
paprika
salt and pepper
WHAT TO DO:
Preheat oven to 180C
In a large fry pan cook the ground chicken with salt and pepper until browned. Then mix in the tomato paste and set aside.
Clean the fry pan. Heat up the butter. Then add the onions and carrots. Cook a few minutes. Add the mushrooms and sauté with onion mixture for a few minutes. Add the peas and cook for about 2 more minutes. Add the flour to the mixture and cook for a few minutes so the flour cooks.
Add the beef broth and stir until thickened. Add the parsley and thyme. Add the meat mixture to the pan to incorporate.
Mix half of the cheese into the mash potatoes.
Put the meat mixture into a 9×13 baking dish and top with the potatoes. Sprinkle the top with the rest of the cheese. Sprinkle the paprika over the top.
Bake for 20/30 minutes or until bubbly.*
