Step 1

In a pressure cooker, heat oil. Add onion, garlic, carrots, and celery and saute in hot oil over medium high heat for 2 minutes. Add chicken pieces, stir, and cook 1 minute. Stir in broth, lemon juice, sherry, mushrooms, potatoes, salt, pepper, and herbs. Secure lid. Over high heat, bring cooker up to pressure. Reduce heat to maintain pressure and cook 6 minutes. Release pressure and remove lid.

Stir in peas. Bring to a boil and cook 1 minute. Reduce heat to medium. Discard bay leaf. Combine half-and-half, butter and potato starch in a small bowl, blending until smooth. Stir into chicken mixture until thoroughly mixed. Pour into a 13x9 baking dish or 6 individual ovenproof dishes.

Preheat oven to 400°F. On a lightly floured surface, roll puff pastry, overlapping pastry sheets, into a rectangle slightly larger than baking dish, or cut rounds slightly larger than the individual dishes. Brush away excess flour. Place pastry over chicken mixture. Using a paring knife, trim away excess dough around dish edges. Place dish on baking sheet. Bake 12 minutes or until golden brown.
