Sweet Potato Mash + Chicken & Broccoli

When I made my chicken pot pie earlier this week, I ended up using a rotisserie chicken. Since I only used about 1/3 of the chicken, I used 1/3 more with this recipe. Its something super easy to throw together. I chopped everything I needed during my Sunday morning prep for the week: 2 cups chicken, 1 head of broccoli and 3 portabella mushrooms (the small ones). Along with 6 peeled sweet potatoes and some regular potatoes I dug up in my mother in laws garden that were starting to go bad. (I used my one extra sweet potato to make purees for our sweet Jellybean).

First thing you want to do because it takes the longest is bring a pot of water to boil and add your diced potatoes.

After your potatoes are going add some olive oil and 1 tbsp of diced garlic in a pan. Mix in your broccoli, chicken, mushrooms and bacon. Add sea salt, ground pepper and paprika.

Drain potatoes once soft and mash them together with 1 tbsp butter and 1/2 – 1 cup milk depending of the texture you would like to achieve.

Layer in your potatoes in the bowl then top with your chicken and broccoli mixture.

In case you were wondering where do I store Jellybean’s puree, I blend them, put them into ice cube trays and then freeze it. Once frozen I transfer it into a ziplock baggie! She starts purees in 2 weeks. If anyone is interested, I can post my puree recipes on my blog as well.
