chickherds pie

this is a spin on a traditional shepherd's pie... and while my very british ex-sig other liked the traditional dish (his mom sent me the recipe), he loved this one! the rest of my family loves it too... when my son came home on leave once, he demolished an entire pan of this, along with almost an entire pan of the traditional shepherd's pie!
