1Add salt/pepper and chicken broth to a medium stock pot and boil chicken until cooked thru reserving the broth...set aside to cool and shred.

4add all veggies to broth and boil for 5 minutes then reduce to a simmer for 15 minutes.
5In a 2 quart round casserole dish add your preferred pie crust to the bottom of the dish and mold gently to the sides of the dish. Poke holes in the bottom with a fork and bake off for 10 minutes set aside
6When veggies are al dente add 1/3 cup cold water to flour and mix until smooth, add mixture quickly to simmering stock.add the shredded chicken. Simmer for 5 minutes. Turn off heat stir in butter, cream and nutmeg.
7Fill casserole with the filling and drape the top crust over the the entire top of the casserole dish, letting it hang over the sides.Vent the top crust with a sharp knife. Brush with the egg wash. (I claim the extra crust from the sides for myself, as I am the chef!)
8Bake off 35-45 minutes or until Golden Brown. Rim the edges with foil if they begin to brown too much. Allow pie to set up for 15-20 minutes to hold form when cut.
