Chicken Pie (With leftover baked/Roasted Chicken)

Chicken baked/Roasted leftovers: 1/2 kg shredded
(If you dont have leftovers, just pressure cook chicken with pepper and salt or roast it in oven with pepper and salt)

For White Sauce:
Maida: 1 tbsp
Butter: 1 tbsp
Milk: 400 ml
Pepper and salt: as needed

Potato Layer
Potato: half kg
Butter: 2 tbsp
Milk: 1/4 cup tbsp
Salt and Pepper: as needed.

Cheese Grated: 1/4 to 1/2 cup

From my personal experience, do not use cheddar cheese, it browns very fast. You can use regular block cheese grated.

Chicken Layer:
Grease a baking dish and layer the chicken shredded at the bottom.

White Sauce Layer:
In a sauce pan, melt 2 tbsp butter, add the maida to it.
Mix it properly on low heat and when the raw smell is gone (pls do not brown it) add the  milk to it and whisk properly till you get a thick sauce. Add pepper and salt to this.
Pour this over the chicken layer.

Potato Layer:
 Pressure cook the potatoes and mash it properly and add butter and milk to it to make a smooth paste
Add salt and pepper to this mix.
Now add the potato mash on top of it and smooth it with a spatula.
Sprinkle grated cheese on top (generously!!!! for better taste)
Bake for half hour (more or less) depending on the oven, the potatoes have to brown a bit (that is the idea)
Slice and enjoy it warm with butter toasted garlic bread.
