Wholesome honey mustard chicken
This dish is a healthy take on a classic recipe
You won’t find meat in this cottage pie, but you will find plenty of flavour from all the fresh veggies and lentils – not to mention the crisp potato topping! Using canned brown lentils makes this dish super affordable, as well as a nutrition powerhouse. Lentils are high in dietary fibre, iron and B group vitamins, and are an excellent substitute for mince.
By swapping the classic potato mash topping for a crisp potato top, we’ve also cut down on cooking time, so rumbling tummies will be satisfied faster.
