How to Make It

Step 1

Place chicken, salt, pepper, thyme, and sage in a large Dutch oven; add water to cover. Bring to a boil; cover and simmer 1 hour or until tender. Remove chicken, reserving 1 cup broth; cool chicken. Remove chicken from bone, and cut into bite-size pieces.

Step 2

Line a 2-quart baking dish with two-thirds of pastry. Place chicken in pastry shell.

Step 3

Melt 2 tablespoons butter in a medium saucepan; add flour, stirring until smooth. Cook 1 minute, stirring constantly. Gradually stir in broth; cook over medium heat, stirring constantly, until thickened and bubbly. Pour sauce evenly over chicken.

Step 4

Place ham pieces over chicken mixture, and dot with remaining butter. Top with remaining pastry. Trim edges of pastry; seal and crimp edges. Cut slits to allow steam to escape. Decorate with pastry cutouts, if desired. Bake at 400° for 40 minutes or until crust is golden brown.
