Chicken Pot Pie
- 4 cups chicken broth
- 1 bouillon cube
- 1/2 cup (1 stick) butter
- 1 onion, finely chopped
- 2 large carrots, cut in 1/2 inch rounds
- 3 tbsp. chopped chives
- 2 cloves garlic, finely chopped
- Salt and freshly ground black pepper
- 1/2 cup all-purpose flour
- 1/4 cup heavy cream
- 3 tbsp. dry sherry
- 1 store-bought 2-lb. rotisserie chicken, shredded
- 1 (7 oz.) bag frozen pearl onions
- 1 (9 oz.) box frozen peas
- 1 (9 oz.) box frozen corn
- 2 (9 oz.) packages store-bought rolled out pie dough
- 1 egg beaten with 1 tbsp. water
Preheat your oven to 375 degrees F.
In a large sauce pan, heat chicken broth and bouillon cube over medium heat until hot.
In a Dutch oven, melt butter over medium heat. Add onions, carrots, chives and garlic, and sauté until tender. Season with salt and pepper. Add the flour and stir together until it becomes pasty and lump-free, about 2 minutes. Stir in the hot broth, heavy cream, sherry, chicken and frozen onions, peas and corn. Bring to a boil, then reduce to a simmer.
With a ladle, fill 6 oven-proof ramekins or bowls with the filling. Place on baking sheet.
Sprinkle flour on countertop. Roll out dough an extra inch. Using a biscuit round or mold, cut out dough to cover the tops of your oven-proof bowls, with about 1/2-inch hangover, depending on their size. Crimp the dough over the edge of the ramekin. Brush with the egg wash and make 4 small slits on the top. Sprinkle with kosher salt and place on a baking sheet. Bake for 35 minutes. Remove from the oven and serve.

Wine Pairing - Alsace Pinot Gris
Brilliantly yellow or deeply gold in color, Alsace Pinot Gris has an earthy, smoky nose with aromas of mushrooms and moss, in addition to dried fruits, honey and gingerbread character. On the palate, these full-bodied, rich and round wines are always supported by bright freshness.
Its compatibility with hearty dishes such as game, roasted pork and earthy ingredients, such as mushrooms and truffles, make Pinot Gris the white wine choice for red wine drinkers.
