Add shortening; pulse 4 times or just until mixture resembles coarse meal. Transfer mixture to a bowl.

Chill 30 minutes.

Lightly spoon 1/2 cup flour into a dry measuring cup; level with a knife. Place flour in a medium bowl; add broth, stirring with a whisk. Stir broth mixture into leek mixture; bring to a boil, stirring constantly. Reduce heat, and simmer 8 minutes. Stir in potato, chicken, and remaining ingredients.

- Slightly overlap 2 sheets of plastic wrap on a slightly damp surface. Unwrap and place chilled dough on plastic wrap. Cover dough with 2 additional sheets of overlapping plastic wrap. Roll dough, still covered, into a 12 x 8-inch rectangle. Remove top sheets of plastic wrap. Place dough, plastic wrap side up, over hot filling. Remove top sheets of plastic.
