Step 1:

Place a large pot or dutch oven over medium-high heat then add 6 tablespoons of butter. Once melted, add the diced onion and sliced carrots. Saute for about 8 minutes or until the veggies are soft. Next, stir in the sliced mushrooms and add the minced garlic. Continue to saute for another 5 minutes until the mushroom is softened. Sprinkle the all-purpose flour and stir continuously for 2 minutes. Pour the chicken broth and heavy cream. Bring the mixture to a simmer and boil for another minute until the sauce thickens. Just before you turn off the heat, add two teaspoons of salt and 1/4 teaspoon of black pepper.

Step 2:

Add the shredded chicken, finely chopped parsley, and frozen peas into the mixture. Stir all together until well combined. Set aside.

Step 3:

Roll 1 pie crust disk over a floured surface into a 12″ diameter circle. Once done, lightly dust your rolling pin with a little bit of flour then loosely wrap the dough around your rolling pin. Next, unroll your crust over your pie pan. Arrange the dough evenly into your pan. Pour your chicken filling and spread evenly. Set aside.

Step 4:

Lightly dust your work surface again and roll the second pie dough disk into a 10″ diameter circle. Transfer the same way over the chicken pot pie filling. Tuck the top crust under the bottom crust. Next, crimp the edges, and pat them down to prevent them from browning too much. Cut 5 to 6 of 2″ slits in the center of your pie then brush with an egg wash. Lastly, garnish with kosher salt and black pepper.
