Scandinavian Potato Mash with pulled Chicken

I love to watch cooking shows while standing at the ironing board. That makes ironing less boring.
On one of my Pay TV channels has a cooking show from Scandinavia. 4 chefs, one of Denmark, Norway, Sweden and Finland.

This is a recipe from Sweden, well part of the recipe. I had a lot of chicken breast left over from my Turkish Chicken, so now it becomes a player in a Scandinavian dish. Well, a multi culti chicken! Orignially the potato mash was served with some smoked monkfish.

The mash is the show here in this meal, I loved the flavour combination. And it went very good with the chicken.

recipe for the mash:
500 g new potatoes
2 eggs
1/2 bunch of fresh dill
1/2 bunch of flat leaf parsley
1 spring onion
4 Anchovis filets
2 tbsp capers
120 g creme fraiche
salt and pepper

recipe for the pulled chicken:
2 chicken breast pre cooked
2 spring onions
2 cloves of garlic
1 tsp chili honey ( melt 150 g honey with 2 tsp chili flakes and store that in a jar)
2 tbsp butter
200 ml chicken stock
a couple of dashes of Cipotle tabasco
salt and pepper

get all mash ingredients in one pot and start mashing

Take a big pot and cook the potatotes in some salted water, after 10 minutes place 2 eggs into the water and cook them with the potatoes. After 8 minutes get them out and place them into cold water.
Drain the potatoes and back into the pot with the peeled eggs.
Cho the dill and the parsley, add chopped Anchovis and chuck the capers in.
At last add the creme fraiche and use a potato masher to make a coarse mash. Season.

don`t cook the chicken, just reheat it
In a small casserole, melt some chili honey and butter and fry off the onions and garlic, add the broth and the pulled apart chicken pieces. Season and add some Tabasco.
