Fill a large pot with water and place on
high heat. Add the potatoes, sweet potato and butternut.
In a large saucepan, fry the onions,
garlic and celery until soft and translucent.
Add the chicken and fry until the meat
starts to brown.
Add the tomatoes, tomato paste, bay leaves
and 1/2 cup water and turn down the heat.
Cover and allow to simmer for 10
minutes. Uncover and allow to simmer for 10 minutes.
When the vegetables are soft, drain and
mash with the butter and milk.
(I used my handheld mixer which worked
incredibly well to get rid of all the lumps and only took a minute)
Add the cheese and seasoning and mix
Spoon the chicken mixture into an
oven-proof dish and top with the mashed vegetables.
I like to take a fork
and make patterns on the mash but you can just dollop it on if you don’t
feel too creative.
Place in a pre-heated (200°c) oven and
cook for 10-15 minutes until the vegetable layer is slightly browned.
Remove from the oven and allow to rest for
5-10 minutes before serving.
