  • 4 tbsp unsalted butter ( ½ stick)
  • 3 carrots peeled and sliced ¼” thick
  • 2 ribs celery, sliced
  • 1 onion, minced
  • 2 garlic cloves, minced
  • 2 tsp thyme
  • 1/2 cup flour
  • 1/4 cup dry sherry
  • 3 cups chicken broth
  • 1/4 cup heavy cream
  • 2 bay leaves
  • salt & pepper
  • 3 lbs chicken breast, cut into 1” pieces
  • 1 cup frozen peas
  • 2 tbsp minced fresh parsley


  1. Stir in the garlic and thyme and cook until fragrant, about 15  seconds. Stir in the flour. Slowly whisk in the sherry, scraping up any browned bits. Stir in the broth, cream, and bay leaves. Simmer until the mixture is thickened. About ten minutes.
  2. Season the sauce with salt & pepper to taste. Stir in the chicken and continue to simmer until the chicken is cooked through, about 10 minutes.
  3. Discard the bay leaves and stir in the peas and parsley. Pour the mixture into a 9 x 13 baking dish. 
  4. If using pie dough, roll it out into a 15 x 11 rectangle, then drape it over the dish and trim.
  5. Bake until the topping is golden brown and the filling is bubbly, about 20 minutes. Let cool for 5 -10 minutes before serving.
