Shepherd's Pie is traditionally made with lamb, beef, I,  have used chicken mince since my friends eat only chicken. This is real comfort food.  Try and you will love it.Took this Chicken Shepherd’s Pie  and for dessert  a Magic Crust Custard Pie  for a potluck at my friend's place.  When her son tasted this he said that this was exactly like what he had in Singapore and was delighted.
