Chicken Farmer's Pie

I know, strange name. Its really what happened one night when I had cooked a bunch of chicken breasts and wanted something that could work in the freezer. Thus Chicken Farmer's Pie was born. Its not really a pie, but that's ok.

1 - 1.5 lb cooked cubed chicken breasts (2-3 cups if that helps)
1 (16 oz) bag of frozen broccoli
1 (10 oz) cream of broccoli soup
4 cups cooked mashed potatoes
Paprika to garnish
2 T butter, optional

Mix the chicken, frozen broccoli, and cream of mushroom soup together. I find cream of broccoli soup to be extremely stinky, and almost pitched the whole thing then, but decided to hope for the best.

Put into a 9x13 pan. Top with the mashed potatoes. Sprinkle paprika on top.

Bake at 350 F for 30-40 minutes until hot and the potatoes and paprika start to brown.

Add a couple of table spoons of butter to the top, if desired, right out of the oven to melt.

To make for the freezer. Don't bake it. Cover and freeze.
To serve: Thaw. Bake at 350 for about 40 minutes (it takes longer chilled than when you make it room temperature).

Verdict: Strange, but good. Go figure. Awfully white on the plate though.
