1. Coat a 13 x 9-inch baking pan with nonstick cooking spray. Reserve.
2. Remove all meat from the roasted chicken, discard skin and bones.
Chop or shred into bite-size pieces. Reserve.
3. Put the butter into a 6-quart pot and place over medium heat.
When the butter is melted, add the onion and carrot, cook until soft
and fragrant, about 8 to 10 minutes.
4. Add the flour to the pot and stir well, cook for an additional couple
of minutes. Slowly add the chicken broth while whisking mixture
together to incorporate.
5. Allow mixture to come to a boil. Once boiling, reduce heat to maintain
a steady simmer.
6. Add the Yukon Gold potatoes and simmer for about 8 to 10 minutes;
add the sweet potatoes and simmer for an additional 8 to 10 minutes,
until all vegetables are tender.
7. Stir in the shredded chicken, peas and pearl onions. Allow to simmer
together to completely heat through. Taste and adjust seasoning
according to preference. Pour the entire mixture into the prepared
13 x 9-inch pan
8. Roll out the puff pastry so it’s thin and equal in size to the baking
pan – cut to fit if necessary. Place pastry on top of pan and brush
with egg wash.
9. Place rack in position 1. Select Bake at 400°F for 20 minutes.
When oven is ready, place the prepared pan in the oven. Puff pastry
should be golden brown and puffed when ready.
