Mile High Chicken Potpie Recipe

Ingredients :
1 large egg, separated
4 to 6 tablespoons cold water, divided
2 cups all-purpose flour
1/4 teaspoon salt
2/3 cup cold butter, cubed
FILLING:
3 tablespoons butter
2 medium potatoes, peeled and cut into 1/2-inch cubes
4 medium carrots, thinly sliced
2 celery ribs, finely chopped
1/4 cup finely chopped onion
3 tablespoons all-purpose flour
2 tablespoons chicken bouillon granules
1-1/2 teaspoons dried tarragon
1/2 teaspoon coarsely ground pepper
1-1/2 cups half-and-half cream
2-1/2 cups cubed cooked chicken
1-1/2 cups fresh peas or frozen peas
1/2 to 1 teaspoon celery seed

In a small bowl, beat egg yolk with 2 tablespoons water. In a large bowl, combine flour and salt; cut in butter until crumbly. Gradually add yolk mixture, tossing with a fork; add additional water 1 tablespoon at a time, as needed, until dough forms a ball. Divide dough into two portions, one with three-quarters of the dough and one with the remainder. Shape each into a disk; cover and refrigerate 1 hour or overnight.
For filling, in a Dutch oven, melt butter. Saute potatoes, carrots, celery and onion until crisp-tender, 5-7 minutes. Stir in flour, bouillon, tarragon and pepper. Gradually stir in cream. Bring to a boil; cook and stir until thickened, about 2 minutes. Stir in chicken and peas; set aside to cool completely.
On a lightly floured surface, roll out larger portion of dough to fit bottom and up the sides of an 8-in. springform pan. Place dough in pan; add cooled filling. Roll remaining dough to fit over the top. Place over filling. Trim, seal and flute edge. Cut slits in top. Chill for at least 1 hour.
Lightly beat egg white with 1 teaspoon water. Brush over the top crust; sprinkle with celery seed. Place pie on a rimmed baking tray.
Bake at 400° until crust is golden brown and filling is bubbly, 50-55 minutes. Cool on a wire rack for at least 30 minutes before serving.
