Easy Breezy Chicken Pot Pie

INGREDIENTS
1 stick unsalted butter
6 tablespoons flour, plus more for rolling crust
4 cups dark chicken broth
1 large onion, chopped
2 tablespoons fresh thyme
4 carrots, chopped
Additional butter for sautéing the mushrooms
2 - 10-ounce packages mushrooms, trimmed and caps quartered
Sea salt and coarsely ground black pepper to taste
1 store-bought rotisserie chicken, meat shredded
1 10-ounce package frozen peas
1 store-bought piecrust
1 egg beaten with 1 teaspoon of milk (for brushing the crust)

DIRECTIONS
Heat oven to 425 degrees. Melt 6 tablespoons of the butter in a medium saucepan over medium heat. Whisking constantly, slowly add 6 tablespoons of flour and cook for 3 minutes. Still whisking, slowly add the broth. Bring to a boil. Reduce heat and simmer until thickened slightly, about 5 minutes. Remove from heat. Melt 2 tablespoons of the remaining butter in a skillet over medium heat. Add the onion and cook until softened, about 7 minutes. Add the thyme and carrots and cook for 5 minutes more. Transfer to a 9 x 13-inch baking dish.

Melt a bit more butter in the skillet over medium-high heat. Add the mushrooms and cook for 2 minutes. Reduce heat, season with salt and pepper to taste, and simmer until the liquid evaporates, about 3 minutes. Add the mushrooms to the dish along with the chicken, peas, the reserved sauce, and season with salt and pepper to taste.

Roll out the piecrust on a floured surface until it is slightly larger than the dish. Lay it on top and tuck under any dough that hangs over the edges. Cut two 2-inch slits in the crust. Brush the crust with egg wash. Bake until the crust is olden brown, about 20 minutes. Reduce heat to 350 degrees and bake until the filling starts to bubble, 25 minutes longer.

Serves: 8
