Surely you have never eaten such a potato casserole – with mashed potatoes and delicious chicken. Try the Canadian specialty called rap pie.

Ingredients for 8 servings:

  • 2 tablespoons of butter
  • 2 onions
  • 2 liters of chicken stock
  • 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 baking time)

And this is how it is done:


  1. First, melt the butter in a pan. Peel and finely chop the onions, then fry them in butter. Sauté them on medium-high heat until they get a nice golden color.
  2. Place in a large pot and bring the chicken broth to a boil. Drain and cut the chicken breasts into large pieces – then add them to the stock and simmer until the meat is tender, which should be about 20 minutes. Now remove the meat from the liquid with a slotted spoon and set both aside for now.
  3. Peel the potatoes and grate them finely. Place the mashed potatoes on a clean cotton tea towel and squeeze well to extract the juice. Place the dried potatoes in a bowl and season with salt and pepper. Add some chicken broth to make it the consistency of oatmeal.
  4. Grease a large pan with butter and pour half of the potato mixture. Now layer the onions on top, followed by the chicken breast. Place the remaining potato mixture on top as a topping.
  5. Heat the oven to 180 degrees and let the pan bake for an hour. Pour some chicken broth over the ingredients to keep the dish from drying out. That’s it – Rappie Pie is ready!
