You only need a few ingredients and the Reppy cake is ready. Delicious potato casserole from Canada!

You have definitely never eaten such a potato casserole – with grated potatoes and delicious chicken. Try a Canadian pie called “rappy”.

Ingredients for 8 servings:

  • 2 tablespoons of butter
  • 2 bulbs
  • 2 liters of chicken broth
  • 1 kg of chicken breast
  • 2.5 kg of potatoes
  • Salt pepper

Approximately per serving:

  • 434 calories
  • 6 grams of fat
  • 55 grams of carbohydrates
  • 35 grams of protein

Preparation time:

  • 40 minutes (plus 1 hour of baking)

And here’s how it’s done:

  1. First, melt the butter in a pan. Peel and finely chop the onion, then fry in butter. Fry on medium heat until they acquire a pleasant golden color.
  2. Place in a large saucepan and bring the chicken stock to a boil. Drain the chicken breasts and cut them into large pieces, then add them to the broth and cook until the meat is tender, about 20 minutes. Now remove the meat from the broth with a slotted spoon and set aside both for a while.
  3. Peel the potatoes and finely grate them with a grater. Place the mashed potatoes on a clean cotton towel and squeeze well to extract the liquid. Place the drained potatoes in a bowl and season with salt and pepper. Pour in some chicken stock to make it the consistency of oatmeal.
  4. Grease a large baking dish with butter and pour half of the potato mixture into it. Now put the onion on top, and then the chicken breast. Place the remaining potato mixture on top as the top layer.
  5. Preheat the oven to 180 degrees and let the casserole bake for an hour. Drizzle a little chicken stock over the ingredients to keep the dish from drying out. That’s it – Reppy’s pie is ready!
