“This recipe originally called for a scratch crust. I substitute a Pillsbury crust. A pre-roasted rotisserie chicken from the grocery deli could be used in a pinch, too.”

  1. Chicken:
  2. Preheat oven to 400 degrees.
  3. Place carrots, onion, and leek on a rimmed baking sheet and roast until golden brown, about 30 minutes. Transfer to a large pot fitted with a lid. Add chicken, breast side down, celery, thyme sprigs, wine, salt, and peppercorns to pot. Add 8 cups water to cover and bring to a boil. Reduce heat to low and simmer gently for 10 minutes. Remove pot from heat, cover, and poach chicken until cooked through, about 35 minutes. Can be made 1 day ahead. Chill uncovered until cool. Cover chicken and broth separately; keep chilled. Rewarm broth before continuing.
  4. Remove chicken from pot and set aside until cool. Reserve broth. Shred meat; discard skin and bones. Set a large strainer over another pot. Strain broth into clean pot. Stir in tomato paste. Return to medium heat and simmer, uncovered, until reduced to 5 cups, about 40 minutes.

Whisk in herbs and warm broth from chicken. Using a slotted spoon, transfer mushrooms to saucepan. Pour in soaking liquid, leaving sediment behind. Simmer for 20 minutes.
  8. Set a strainer over another large pot. Strain broth into pot; discard solids. Add chicken, carrots, peas, onions, mushrooms, and potatoes. Bring to a simmer. Can be made one day ahead. chill uncovered until cool; cover and keep chilled. Rewarm before continuing.
  9. Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Spoon filling into an 11x8x2" or a 2 1/2 quart round baking dish. Top with pastry, pinching edges to seal. Cut a 1" slit in center of crust for steam to vent. Brush pastry with beaten egg, and sprinkle with sea salt and pepper.
