Shepherd’s Pie but with Chicken instead of Lamb

This is a one dish meal that anyone can easily make. The original Shepherd’s pie is made of lamb as its name suggests. It’s such a versatile dish.  The meat can be replaced with beef or chicken and you can use vegetables of your choice. The mixture of meat and vegetables is covered with a thick layer of rich buttery mashed potatoes. This is my version of Shepherd’s Pie but with chicken instead of lamb.
