Chicken Brussels pie


Chicken Brussels pie
This is a novel twist on the well known cottage or shepherd's pie idea (minced meat topped with mashed potato). Why not try this "Brussels" pie with a mixture of mashed potato and Brussels sprouts on top of chopped chicken?

Remarks

If you don't have Comté cheese, use another type suitable for grating.

The chicken can also be replaced with leftovers of another kind of meat.

It is worth noting that French "purée" is softer and much richer that traditional British "mash", so makes more of a gratin topping than a pie crust.
