Preheat oven to 375 degrees F.
Melt 1/4 stick of butter in a small saucepan. Whisk in flour and cook on low heat 2 minutes. Reserve this mixture.
Melt remaining 1/4 stick butter in 5 quart skillet on medium heat. Add garlic, onions and carrots. Cook on medium for 5 minutes. Add chicken broth, cream, salt and pepper. Bring to a low boil. Whisk in the prepared roux (butter-flour mixture) and return filling to a boil until it thickens.
Add reserved chicken and peas and remove from heat. You may cool and refrigerate for up to one day, if planning in advance.
Cut pastry in circles 1 inch larger than baking dishes. Place pastry on top on press around sides to seal.

Bake in a 375 degree F oven for 20-30 minutes, until top is golden and filling is bubbling.
