How to Cook Chicken and Potato Pot Pie

For the chicken-veggie mixture:
  1. Melt the butter in a saucepan over low heat. Add the onion. Cook and stir until tender.
  2. Add the carrot and potato and stir them in. Do the same for the celery and cubed chicken breast. Cook and stir until the chicken meat changes color.
  3. Add the green beans, season with thyme, pepper, and salt, then stir in. Do the same for the flour.
  4. Add the chicken stock and heavy cream, stir them in and simmer for 15 minutes. Set aside.
For the dough:
  1. Add the flour, butter, and baking powder to a blender. Season with salt and start mixing. Gradually add the milk in the process. Mix until you have a dough.
  2. Dust the work surface with flour and place the dough on it. Flatten it using the rolling pin.
  3. Cut the flattened dough into discs using a 3-inch cookie cutter. We’ve got 8 of them.
  4. Transfer the chicken-vegetable mixture to an 11 x 7 x 2 inches (28 x 18 x 5 cm) baking dish. Spread it evenly.
  5. Top with grated Cheddar and dough discs. Coat these with the whisked yolk. Bake for 40 minutes at 350⁰F/175⁰C.
