  • In a 10-inch cast-iron or other heavy oven-going skillet melt butter over medium heat. Add onion, celery, and sweet pepper; cook for 4 to 5 minutes or until vegetables are tender, stirring occasionally. Stir in flour, thyme, salt, and black pepper. Gradually stir in broth and half-and-half. Cook and stir until thickened and bubbly. Stir in chicken and peas. Remove from heat.

  • On a lightly floured surface, roll pastry topper or refrigerated pie crust into a 13-inch circle. Using a sharp knife, cut slits in pastry to allow steam to escape, or, if desired, use a small cookie cutter to cut shapes from pastry.

  • Carefully place pastry circle over mixture in skillet, letting edges of pastry drape over the sides*. In a small bowl beat together egg and water. Brush pastry with some of the beaten egg. If using, place pastry cutouts on top of pastry and brush with beaten egg.

  • Place skillet in oven. Bake for 25 to 30 minutes or until pastry is golden brown. Let stand for 20 minutes before serving.

*

If using refrigerated pie crust, place the pastry over the mixture in the skillet, flute the edges of the pastry to the inside of the skillet. You can also use this method with the Pastry Topper, if desired.
