TIPS to making this Chicken Shepherd’s Pie Recipe perfect the first time!

Homemade or instant potatoes?

Of course, this is YOUR call on whether to make the garlic mashed potatoes from scratch or instant potatoes. I prefer to make mine from scratch because I can control the texture and lumps. I also think homemade tastes better. Now, if you want to save time, then, use instant potatoes.

Can I use water instead of chicken broth?

Absolutely! I prefer using broths when boiling foods because broths add additional flavors. When I use water, I end up adding seasonings and salt to it. However, if you use plain water, that’s ok too. You can always add more seasonings to the dish if you want more.

Can I use canned peas and corn?

Yes! Although this chicken shepherd’s pie recipe calls for frozen peas and corn, you can use canned or fresh peas and corn. I use frozen simply because I always have them.

Fresh or frozen chicken?

I used fresh chicken breasts for this recipe, but you can use frozen chicken breasts. If you use frozen, you will need to defrost them before boiling otherwise it usually takes about double the amount of time to cook. Also, most frozen chicken breasts are smaller than the fresh ones which means you’ll need a couple more breasts to make this dish.

Preheat your oven to 350 degrees.


On a cutting board, trim the fat from the chicken breasts.


Add butter, chicken broth and the whole chicken breasts to your 5-quart pot and set the heat to medium-high. Boil the chicken for about 20-25 minutes or until fully cooked.

Depending on how large your chicken breasts are, you may need to add more chicken broth.

While you're waiting for the chicken to boil, go ahead and start on the Garlic Mashed Potatoes Recipe (link in ingredients list).


When the chicken is done, turn the stove off. With the breasts still in the pot, use 2 forks to shred them up.

Next, add the cream of chicken soup, salt, chicken & herb seasoning, garlic powder and onion powder to the chicken and stir to combine.


Now, let's layer up this pie.
1st layer: Pour the chicken mixture into your 9 x 13 x 2 baking pan. Use your wooden spoon to spread the mixture evenly in the pan.
2nd layer: Add the peas in an even layer over the chicken.
3rd layer: Add half of the garlic mashed potatoes.
4th layer: Sprinkle half of the cheese over the potatoes.
5th layer: Add the corn in an even layer over the cheese.
6th layer: Add the remaining garlic mashed potatoes.
Final layer: Sprinkle the remaining cheese over the potatoes.


Bake, uncovered, for 30 minutes or until the cheese has melted.

Serve warm. Enjoy!
