Shepherdess' Pie

Patti Knepp


I had some leftover chicken and decided to do a spin on Shepherd's Pie and since it is made with chicken instead of lamb or beef I thought I'd call it Shepherdess' Pie.

Patti's take on a shepherd's pie recipe is delish. This easy recipe has simple ingredients, yet packs a big punch of flavor. Pepper adds a kick of spice so adjust that to your liking. If you don't have chicken leftovers, pick up a rotisserie chicken at the market. This is a flavorsome and hearty dinner. Test Kitchen Avatar The Test Kitchen
