How to make it
- In a medium sauce pan, bring stock or broth to a simmer. Add chicken and poach until just cooked through. Remove chicken with slotten spoon and set aside. Reserve stock for later use.
- In a 10 quart sauce pot, melt butter over medium heat.
- Add onions, carrots, and peas, and saute for about 3 minutes.
- Add mushrooms and continue to cook until they begin to give off their liquid and onions are transluscent (do not brown.)
- Add flour and mix gently to coat everything. Continue to cook on LOW heat for 6-8 minutes, stirring occasionally. Scrape the bottom of the pan as you do this so the roux doesn't burn.
- Increase heat and add the chicken stock in a steady stream, whisking continuously. Bring to a simmer, then lower heat.
- Pre-heat oven to 375.
- Add bay leaf, salt, pepper, and cook over low heat for 10 minutes.
- Add poached chicken, and warm heavy cream, stirring well.
- Spoon mixture evenly into 8 small aluminum baking bowls.
- Top each bowl with puff pastry.
- In a small bowl, whisk together the egg whites with a little water. Brush tops of pastry with egg wash.
- Place bowls on a baking sheet and bake until golden brown on top, about a half hour to 40 minutes.
- Allow to cool for 10 minutes before serving.
