Lately I have tried out many recipes from Annabel KarmelN1 Family Cookbook magazines (spring and summer editions) in my cooking. I love its wide selection of kid-friendly recipes which are both simple to follow and wholesome. Also, the required ingredients and seasonings are quite basic and easily found in the supermarkets. Besides that, the recipes include many fun and healthy ideas suitable for all ages from babies to adults. From the photos, they look very appetizing!! So far, her recipes haven’t disappointed me. The dishes turned out to be very tasty. More importantly, my family loves them. This led me to bookmark more and more recipes from these two magazines.
If you are interested in Annabel Karmel’s homemade recipes, you can find a number of them in my previous posts such as teriyaki salmon in a parcel, caramel popcorn and power-packed oat bars. Or, you can visit her official website.
N1 Annabel Karmel is an author of books on nutrition and cooking for babies, children and families.
This chicken pie with cheesy mash topping is one recipe from Annabel Karmel Family Cookbook magazine that I tried and found to be Awfully Delicious! My husband thinks that it will be even better if it is served with some gravy to compliment the mashed potatoes which can get a bit dry without it.
I had modified some ingredients and steps in this recipe for the convenience of parents or caregivers who seldom cook Western food. For ingredients, I had substituted leek with celery and opted for dried parsley instead of fresh parsley. Of course, you are free to follow the original recipe if you can find leek and fresh parsley. I find that these substitutions have not affected much the taste of the final dish. As for cooking the chicken breast, I used the boiling method instead of the oven to poach it. This method will suit those who are lazy to use oven (just like me, hehehe!). I included both the original and modified recipes for your reference.

There is only one reservation I have on this recipe. It’s not really a wholesome dish for your toddlers as it uses lots of high calories ingredients such as cheese, butter and milk. But if it is just eaten moderately on an occasional basis, then it will certainly be a great one-dish meal for your family. I’m sure it will put smiles on your toddlers especially your fussy eaters when they see this comforting dish on the dinner table. For those who are bored with Asian food, try this one out for a change!
