Chicken Potato Topped Pie and Maple Roasted Vegetables

As the weather is getting colder I am enjoying cooking lovely warming winter meals, such as this potato topped chicken pie and maple roasted vegetables.   Both are very easy and the vegetables go well with the pie.

Quick, easy, low chemical chicken cottage pie topped with potato.


  • Salt (to season)


  • 500g chicken fillets (cut into 1 - 2 cm pieces)
  • 4 spring onions (finely chopped)
  • 1 stalk celery (finely chopped)
  • 1 tablespoon sunflower oil
  • 3 tablespoons No-tomato sauce (Refer to recipe)
  • 1 cup chopped green beans (fresh or frozen and thawed)

Veloute sauce:

  • 2 1/4 cups chicken or vegetable stock (Refer to recipe)
  • 30g butter or Nuttelex
  • 2 tablespoons flour


  • 1kg potatoes (3 very large)
  • 120ml rice milk or milk (approximately)
  • Butter or Nuttelex (to top)


1. Peel and cook the potatoes (boil, steam or microwave)..
While the potatoes are cooking, make the veloute sauce:
2. Pour the stock into a saucepan and bring to a simmer.
3. In a medium sized saucepan melt the Nuttelex over medium heat, then add the flour and stir to form a paste. Cook the paste for a few minutes, stirring, until it starts to colour. Remove from the heat and allow to cool for a couple of minutes.
Place the flour paste over low heat and slowly add in the stock, whisking until it is smooth and thick like gravy. Remove from the heat and set aside.
Veloute Sauce with Vegetable Stock
5. Preheat the oven to 180°C and lightly spray or grease a casserole dish.
6. Mash the potatoes with the rice milk, adding the milk slowly until you have a smooth and creamy mash. Season with salt.
Make the filling:
7. In a frying pan heat the sunflower oil. Add the garlic, spring onions and celery and cook for a few minutes until soft.
8. Add the chicken and cook through. Add the beans and no-tomato sauce and stir through, stir in the veloute sauce and simmer until the beans are cooked. If the filling has too much liquid let it simmer for longer until it thickens up.
9. Allow the filling to cool slightly.
Pur the filling into the casserole dish then spread the potato over the top. Dot the top of the potato with little knobs of Nuttlelex or butter.
