Bring a medium saucepan of salted water to the boil. Peel potato, then cut into large chunks. Thinly slice onion. Thinly slice carrot into half-moons. Finely chop celery. Finely chop garlic. Roughly chop herbs. Cut chicken thigh into 2cm chunks.
Little cooks: Don your goggles and have a go at peeling off the onion's outer layer!
Cook potato in the boiling water until easily pierced with a fork, 12-15 minutes. Drain and return to the pan. Add the butter, milk and a pinch of salt. Mash until smooth.
Little cooks: Get those muscles working and help mash the potatoes!
While potato is cooking, heat a drizzle of olive oil in a large frying pan over high heat. Cook chicken and diced bacon, breaking bacon up with a spoon and stirring occasionally, until browned, 4-5 minutes. Reduce heat to medium-high, then add onion, carrot and celery. Cook, stirring, until softened, 6 minutes. Add garlic and garlic & herb seasoning and cook until fragrant, 1 minute.
Reduce heat to low. Add light cooking cream and cook, stirring, until thickened, 1-2 minutes. Stir through 1/2 the herbs.
Preheat grill to high. Transfer the filling to a baking dish. Top with mash, spreading it out evenly. Sprinkle with grated Parmesan cheese. Grill until browned, 5-10 minutes.
TIP: The grill cooks fast, so keep an eye on the pie!
Divide creamy chicken and bacon pie between plates. Garnish with remaining herbs to serve.
Little cooks: Add the finishing touch by sprinkling over the herbs!
