Ingredients

  • 1 ½ cups low-sodium chicken broth, divided
  • 2 tablespoons all-purpose flour
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 1 (8 ounce) package sliced cremini mushrooms
  • 1 cup chopped onion
  • 6 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1 ½ cups frozen carrots and peas (7 oz.)
  • 1 tablespoon chopped fresh sage
  • 1 tablespoon fresh thyme leaves, plus sprigs for garnish
  • ½ teaspoon salt
  • ½ teaspoon ground pepper
  • 1 pound shredded cooked chicken (about 3 cups; see Tip)
  • 1 (7 to 8 ounce) prepared pie crust, thawed if frozen
  • 1 egg white, lightly beaten

Directions

Step 1
Preheat oven to 425 degrees F.

Step 2
Whisk 1 1/4 cups broth and flour in a medium bowl; set aside.

Step 3
Heat oil in a 10-inch cast-iron or oven-safe nonstick skillet over medium-high heat. Add mushrooms; cook until browned, 6 to 8 minutes. Reduce heat to medium. Add onion and garlic; cook until tender, 4 to 6 minutes.

Step 4
Stir in the remaining 1/4 cup broth, scraping up any browned bits. Stir in the reserved broth-flour mixture, peas and carrots, sage, thyme, salt, and pepper. Bring to a boil, stirring constantly. Reduce heat and cook, stirring occasionally, until the vegetables are tender, about 10 minutes. Remove from heat; stir in chicken.

Step 5
Lay pie crust over the chicken mixture, folding the edges over as needed. Cut four 4-inch slits in the crust to allow steam to escape. Brush with egg white.

Step 6
Bake until the crust is golden and the filling is bubbly, 20 to 25 minutes. Let cool for 10 minutes before serving. Garnish with thyme sprigs, if desired.

Tips

Tip: To poach chicken: Place 4 small boneless, skinless chicken thighs or 2 small boneless, skinless chicken breasts (12 oz. total) in a medium saucepan; cover with cold water. Bring to a boil over medium-high heat. Reduce heat to low, partially cover, and cook until an instant-read thermometer inserted in the thickest part registers 165 degrees F, 12 to 15 minutes. Transfer to a plate and shred into small pieces. Reserve broth for use in another recipe–it will keep in the fridge for up to 4 days or in the freezer for up to 3 months.

Equipment: 10-inch nonstick oven-safe skillet

8 WAYS EXERCISE MAKES YOU HAPPY: GET FIT & FEEL EVEN BETTER

Does your job have you stressed out? Has your daily routine got you feeling down in the dumps? Tired of being tired throughout your day? Exercise! It’s amazing what exercise can do, not just for your body, but for your whole life. It’s not just about getting into a better mood. It’s about making life more joyful and finding happiness!

As we learned from Elle Woods in Legally Blonde, When you exercise, your body releases chemicals called endorphins. These endorphins can interact with the receptors in your brain and make you happy.
