Chicken Mushroom Potpie

This was good.  D made it.

He said that the mixture was much thicker before he cooked it.  I think it will thicken up as leftovers.  We both agreed it needed more salt.

I would have again, with maybe a little salt.

This homey pie boasts creamy, savory sauce and refrigerated piecrust dough for convenience.

Yield: Serves 6 (serving size: about 1 1/2 cups)

Cooking spray
2 tablespoons olive oil, divided
1 1/2 pounds skinless, boneless chicken breast halves, cut into 1-inch pieces
1/2 teaspoon kosher salt, divided
1/2 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper, divided
12 ounces assorted mushrooms, such as shiitake and button, sliced
1 cup thinly sliced onion
1 tablespoon chopped fresh thyme
2 garlic cloves, minced
1 cup finely chopped carrot
8 ounces green beans, trimmed and cut into 1-inch pieces
2 cups unsalted chicken stock (such as Swanson)
1.1 ounces all-purpose flour (about 1/4 cup)
1 cup frozen green peas
2 tablespoons chopped fresh flat-leaf parsley
1/2 (14.1-ounce) package refrigerated pie dough

1. Preheat oven to 425°. Coat an 8-cup ceramic oval baking or gratin dish with cooking spray.

2. Heat a large Dutch oven over medium-high heat. Add 1 tablespoon oil to pan; swirl to coat. Sprinkle chicken with 1/4 teaspoon salt and 1/4 teaspoon pepper. Add half of chicken to pan; cook 3 minutes or until lightly browned. Remove chicken from pan. Repeat procedure with remaining chicken.

3. Add remaining 1 tablespoon oil to pan. Add mushrooms, onion, thyme, garlic, remaining 1/4 teaspoon salt, and remaining 1/4 teaspoon pepper to pan; cook 12 minutes or until mushrooms are browned, stirring occasionally. Add carrot and green beans; cook 3 minutes, stirring occasionally. Combine stock and flour in a bowl, stirring with a whisk. Add stock mixture to pan; bring to a boil, scraping pan to loosen browned bits. Cook 3 minutes or until slightly thickened. Stir in chicken, peas, and parsley. Spoon chicken mixture into prepared pan.

4. Roll dough to an oval large enough to cover the baking dish. Lay dough over filling. Fold edges under, and crimp, if desired. Bake at 425° for 25 minutes or until browned and bubbly.
