This was a unique recipe for sure! I loved the shredded chicken idea. The flavour was a little bland, so I tripled the garlic and added salt. It was quite yummy and everyone liked it. I would have given 3.5 stars if it let me. Oh, even though prep is said to 15 mins it was much longer than that when you consider boiling/mashing the potatoes and shredding the cooked chicken.
