  • Cooking spray

  • 2 tablespoons olive oil, divided

  • 1 ½ pounds skinless, boneless chicken breast halves, cut into 1-inch pieces

  • ½ teaspoon kosher salt, divided

  • ½ teaspoon freshly ground black pepper, divided

  • 12 ounces assorted mushrooms, such as shiitake and button, sliced

  • 1 cup thinly sliced onion

  • 1 tablespoon chopped fresh thyme

  • 2 garlic cloves, minced

  • 1 cup finely chopped carrot

  • 8 ounces green beans, trimmed and cut into 1-inch pieces

  • 2 cups unsalted chicken stock (such as Swanson)

  • 1.1 ounces all-purpose flour (about 1/4 cup)

  • 1 cup frozen green peas

  • 2 tablespoons chopped fresh flat-leaf parsley

  • ½ (14.1-ounce) package refrigerated pie dough


  1. Preheat oven to 425°F. Coat an 8-cup ceramic oval baking or gratin dish with cooking spray.

  2. Heat a large Dutch oven over medium-high heat. Add 1 tablespoon oil to pan; swirl to coat. Sprinkle chicken with 1/4 teaspoon salt and 1/4 teaspoon pepper. Add half of chicken to pan; cook 3 minutes or until lightly browned. Remove chicken from pan. Repeat procedure with remaining chicken.

  3. Add remaining 1 tablespoon oil to pan. Add mushrooms, onion, thyme, garlic, remaining 1/4 teaspoon salt, and remaining 1/4 teaspoon pepper to pan; cook 12 minutes or until mushrooms are browned, stirring occasionally. Add carrot and green beans; cook 3 minutes, stirring occasionally. Combine stock and flour in a bowl, stirring with a whisk. Add stock mixture to pan; bring to a boil, scraping pan to loosen browned bits. Cook 3 minutes or until slightly thickened. Stir in chicken, peas and parsley. Spoon chicken mixture into prepared pan.

  4. Roll dough to an oval large enough to cover the baking dish. Lay dough over filling. Fold edges under, and crimp, if desired. Bake at 425°F for 25 minutes or until browned and bubbly.

Nutrition information is calculated by a registered dietitian using an ingredient database but should be considered an estimate.

* Daily Values (DVs) are the recommended amounts of nutrients to consume each day. Percent Daily Value (%DV) found on nutrition labels tells you how much a serving of a particular food or recipe contributes to each of those total recommended amounts. Per the Food and Drug Administration (FDA), the daily value is based on a standard 2,000 calorie diet. Depending on your calorie needs or if you have a health condition, you may need more or less of particular nutrients. (For example, it’s recommended that people following a heart-healthy diet eat less sodium on a daily basis compared to those following a standard diet.)
