  • 1 large carrot or 2 small
  • 1 large potato or 2 small
  • 2 tbsp butter, melted
  • 1 slice cooked ham
  • 3 chicken breast fillets
  • 3 tbsp frozen peas, defrosted
  • 4 tbsp double cream


  1. Ask a grown-up to heat the oven to 200C/180C fan, then boil the carrot and potato whole for 5 minutes, then put them in a bowl of cold water to cool down. When cold, peel them carefully.

  2. Grate the carrot and potato (cut them into chunks first if you are using a rotary grater).

  3. Put the grated carrot and potato in a large bowl, add the melted butter and mix it all together.

  4. Cut the ham into small pieces using scissors or a small knife, then cut the chicken into pieces.

  5. Put the chicken and ham in a pie dish with the peas and cream and give everything a stir.

  6. Spoon the carrot thatch onto the pie and ask your grown-up helper to put the pie in the oven for 50 minutes or until the chicken and topping are cooked through.
