1. For the pastry topper, in a medium mixing bowl stir together

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


3. In a large saucepan melt margarine or butter over medium heat. Add

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.

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