Another recipe found on the Taste of Home website while searching for Irish recipes for our Culinary Quest. I posted this as written, but feel free to use whatever type of milk (whole, 2%, skim) and I use butter or oil instead of the cooking spray in my cooking, but obviously will change the calories/fat etc.

How to Make Creamy Chicken Boxty

Step-by-Step

  1. Place grated potato in a colander to drain; squeeze to remove excess liquid. Pat dry. In a large bowl, combine the grated potato, milk, flour, mashed potato, salt and pepper. Let stand for 20 minutes.
  2. Meanwhile, in a large nonstick skillet, cook bacon over medium heat until crisp. Add mushrooms and leek; cook until tender. Gradually add cream. Whisk together flour and milk; add to pan. Bring to a boil. Cook and stir for 2 minutes or until thickened. Stir in the chicken, salt and pepper; heat through. Remove from the heat and keep warm.
  3. Coat another large nonstick skillet with cooking spray; heat over medium heat. Pour 3/4 cup batter into center of skillet; lift and tilt pan to coat bottom evenly. Cook until top appears dry; turn and cook 2-3 minutes longer. Remove and keep warm. Repeat with remaining batter, coating skillet with cooking spray as needed.
  4. Spoon filling onto pancakes.
