Next, melt the remaining 1 teaspoon Cabot Unsalted Butter in a medium saucepan over medium heat. Add onions, carrots and peas and cook, stirring, until vegetables begin to soften. Add remaining 1/4 cup milk and chicken and bring mixture to a simmer.
Adjust heat to maintain a simmer and cook for about 10 minutes, stirring occasionally. Gradually stir in grated Cabot Sharp Cheddar cheese. Let cool slightly, then spoon into small bowls and top with mashed potatoes. If desired, top with some additional cheese.
