1 pie crust OR a pre-made PILLSBURY pie crust
1 egg
4 tablespoon butter
1 LARGE shallot, diced
2 LARGE carrots, peeled and diced
4 cloves garlic, minced
3 tablespoons WONDRA flour
1 1/2 cups homemade chicken broth
1 1/2 cups WHOLE milk
FRESH ground sea salt and black pepper
1 tablespoon FRESH chopped thyme pieces
3 cups chopped cooked chicken *see notes
1 can LeSeur Peas, drained WELL

  • Preheat oven to 400°.
  • Roll the crust to 1 inch larger between two sheets of parchment paper.
  • Remove the top parchment paper.
  • Fold and crimp the outer edge to decorate the crust.
  • Arrange parchment on baking sheet.
  • Refrigerate 15 minutes.
  • Beat egg with 1 tablespoon water and brush crust. Save remainder for later.
  • Bake 10-12 minutes until LIGHT-MEDIUM golden brown.
  • Remove from oven to cool, but leave oven on.
  • In large skillet melt butter.
  • Add carrots and shallots, sauteing and cooking 8-10 minutes until carrots have softened.
  • Add garlic, sauteing 30 seconds more.
  • Add flour, stirring to blend.
  • Add chicken broth and milk, stirring regularly, until sauce thickens.
  • Add thyme, FRESH ground sea salt and black pepper.
  • Fold in the chicken pieces and peas.
  • Arrange crust on top.
  • Lightly brush with another layer of beaten egg.
  • Place pan in oven baking 10-15 minutes until crust is golden and filling is bubbly.


  • To make this recipe easier I use COSTCO rotisserie chicken pieces.
  • You can also use frozen peas, but I find the canned Le Seur peas are much more tender.
