Directions

  1. METHOD:.
  2. Preheat oven to 375 degrees F.
  3. On a lightly floured surface, roll out pastry dough with a floured rolling pin. Transfer to a parchment-lined baking sheet, cover with plastic wrap and refrigerate while preparing pie filling.
  4. Combine the stock, onion, bay leaves, peppercorns, and thyme sprigs in a large pot over high heat. Bring the broth to a boil, reduce heat, and simmer for 30 minutes. Add the chicken breasts. Raise the heat and return the mixture to a boil. Reduce heat and simmer until the chicken is just cooked through, about 10 to 15 minutes.
  5. Transfer chicken to a plate and set aside. Strain the stock and set aside 2 1/2 cups. Reserve the remaining stock for another use. When the chicken is cool to the touch cut it into bite-size chunks and set aside.
  6. Melt the butter in a large sauté pan over medium heat. Add the pearl onions and carrots. Cook, stirring occasionally, for about 5 minutes. Add the mushrooms and peas and cook another 5 minutes. Stir in flour and cook another minute. Add reserved stock and milk, stirring constantly. Cook until the sauce begins to thicken, about 5 minutes. Remove from heat and add chicken, the remaining 1 tablespoon chopped thyme, salt, and ground pepper. Spoon chicken mixture into four 2-cup individual oven-proof bowls. Set aside.
  7. Remove pastry from refrigerator and cut into four circles, using the empty bowls as a guide. Place one circle on each bowl and press around the edges to seal the pastry around the bowl. Cut a vent in the center. Using a pastry brush, brush each pie with the egg wash.
  8. Bake until the pastry is puffed and dark golden brown, about 35 minutes.
