  1. Preheat oven to 425°F.

  2. Placed diced potatoes in a small saucepan with water. Simmer covered until potatoes are tender, about 10 minutes. Drain well.

  3. Place butter in a saucepan. Add onion and seasonings cook over medium heat until softened, about 3-4 minutes. 

  4. Sprinkle flour over onions and cook 1 minute.

  5. Whisk in cream and chicken broth a little bit at a time until smooth. It will seem thick at first. Continue adding a little at a time whisking until smooth. Allow to boil 1 minute.

  6. Add drained potatoes, vegetables and chicken. Cook 1 minute more. Stir in parsley. Season with salt and pepper.

  7. Divide mixture over 6 oven safe bowls.

  8. Cut a sheet of puff pastry into squares large enough to overhang about 1" on each dish. Cut 4 slits in each piece to allow steam to escape. Drape puff pastry over bowls.

  9. Beat egg yolk with 1 tablespoon cream and brush over pastry. Bake 25 minutes or until golden. Rest 5-10 minutes before serving, filling will be very hot.

Recipe Notes

To Make in a Pie Crust
You can also make this in a double pie crust. Create the filling as directed. Line a 9" deep dish pie pan with pastry crust. Add filling and top with second pie crust. Bake 30-35 minutes. Cover the edges of the crust with foil during the last 15 minutes to avoid over browning.
If making this in a pie crust, you might want to thicken the filling further. Increase the flour to 1/3 cup to allow the base to thicken.
