Ingredients

  • 1/2

    cup whole wheat flour

  • 1

    tablespoon refrigerated or frozen egg product, thawed

  • 2

    teaspoons 60 percent to 70 percent vegetable oil spread

  • 1/4

    teaspoon baking powder

  • Ice water, as needed

  • 1

    tablespoon olive oil

  • 1/2

    cup carrot, chopped

  • 1/2

    cup celery, chopped

  • 1/3

    cup onion, chopped

  • 1/3

    cup fresh mushrooms, chopped

  • 2

    cloves garlic, minced

  • 3/4

    cup reduced-sodium chicken broth

  • 1/4

    teaspoon dried thyme, crushed

  • 3/4

    cup chicken breast, cooked and chopped

  • 1/4

    cup plain fat-free Greek yogurt

  • 1/4

    cup frozen peas

  • 2

    tablespoons snipped fresh parsley

  • 1

    egg white, lightly beaten

Directions

Crust: Set aside 1 tablespoon of the whole wheat flour. In a food processor combine the remaining whole wheat flour, the egg, vegetable oil spread, and baking powder. Cover and process just until combined. Add enough ice water, 1/2 teaspoon at a time, to make mixture that forms a loose dough and holds together when pinched. Remove dough from processor; knead dough a few times by hand and form into a ball. Wrap in plastic wrap and refrigerate while preparing filling. Filling: In a large skillet, heat oil over medium heat. Add carrot, celery, onion, mushrooms, and garlic; cook about 5 minutes or just until softened. Sprinkle the reserved 1 tablespoon flour over vegetables; cook and stir for 1 minute more. Add chicken broth all at once. Cook and stir until slightly thickened and bubbly. In a small bowl stir together thyme, 1/4 teaspoon ground black pepper, and 1/8 teaspoon salt; set aside a small pinch of the thyme mixture. Add the remaining thyme mixture to the vegetable mixture. Stir in chicken, yogurt, peas, and parsley until combined. Divide chicken mixture evenly between two 8-ounce ramekins or individual casserole dishes or two 10-ounce custard cups.* Preheat oven to 400 degrees F. Line a baking sheet with foil; set aside. Remove dough from refrigerator. Divide dough in half. Roll out each half until circle is just slightly larger than the circumference of a ramekin. Place dough circles on top of the filling in the ramekins; tuck edges under, pressing down slightly along each edge to secure. Make a few small slits or a 1/2-inch opening in the crust to allow for steam to escape. Brush the egg white over crusts; sprinkle with the reserved pinch of seasoning mixture. Place ramekins on prepared baking sheet. Bake for 20 to 25 minutes or until crust is lightly browned.
