Shredded chicken, ham and leek casserole

The evenings may be getting lighter, the temperature sure is getting cooler, combating the cold one dish at a time, starting with slow cooked shredded chicken, ham and leek casserole, served with mash and pan fried mangetout & savoy.

This meal is my 1st of 5, free food Feb challenge which my consultant tasked the group with to make 5 dishes we’ve either never made, or haven’t made for a very long time, all free food. This dish is a first.
