Heat half of the butter in a pan on a medium heat and gently cook the carrot, celery, onion, peas and garlic, softening but not colouring, Remove from the pan and set aside.

Add the remaining butter to the pan and brown the chicken pieces, seasoning them with salt, pepper, nutmeg and the herbs.

Leave the filling to cool.

Place the potatoes in boiling water and cook for 15 minutes or until soft. Drain and return the potatoes to the pan, shake the potatoes until dry. Add the remaining Alpro soya milk and cream, season with freshly ground black pepper then mash with a potato masher.

Spoon or pipe over the filling and bake for 25-30 minutes, until the crust is golden brown.
