Easy to make, worth the time...
1. For the pastry topper, in a medium mixing bowl stir together
1-1/4 cups all-purpose flour and 1/4 teaspoon salt. Using a pastry blender, cut
In shortening until pieces are the size of small peas. Sprinkle 1 tablespoon
Cold water over part of the mixture; gently toss with fork. Push moistened dough
To side of bowl. Repeat with 3 to 4 tablespoons cold water, using 1 tablespoon
At a time, until all dough is moistened. Form into a ball.
2. On a lightly
Floured surface, roll Pastry Topper into a rectangle 1/8 inch thick. Trim to a
Rectangle 1 inch larger than a 2-quart rectangular baking dish. Using a sharp
Knife or small cookie cutter, cut some shapes out of center of pastry. Set

The leeks or onion, mushrooms, celery, and red sweet pepper; cook for 4 to 5
Minutes or until tender. Stir in the 1/3 cup flour, poultry seasoning, 1/2
Teaspoon salt, and black pepper. Add the broth and half-and-half, light cream,
Or milk all at once. Cook and stir until thickened and bubbly. Stir in the
Cooked chicken and peas. Pour into a baking dish.
4. Place pastry over the
Hot chicken mixture in dish; turn edges of pastry under and flute on top of
Pastry. Brush with the egg. Place reserved pastry shapes on top of pastry. Brush
Again with egg.
5. Bake in a 400 degree F oven for 30 to 35 minutes or until
The crust is golden brown. Cool about 20 minutes before serving.

corinnepullen 4y agoYum yum worth the effort. Great way to use up left over roast chicken. I used a teaspoon of thyme leaves as chicken seasoning.
