  8. Blanch spinach in boiling hot water and drain thoroughly (or use frozen spinach)

  10. Place the thoroughly drained spinach in the base of the pie tin, add the chicken mix, removing the bay leaves and top with sweet potato mash
  11. Bake for 25 minutes and add cheese and bake for another 5-10 minutes until cheese has melted
