  • 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
  • 1   tablespoon 
    olive oil
  • 1/2  cup 
    chopped carrot (1 medium)
  • 1/2  cup 
    chopped celery (1 stalk)
  • 1/3  cup 
    chopped onion (1 small)
  • 1/3  cup 
    chopped fresh mushrooms
  • 2   cloves 
    garlic, minced
  • 3/4  cup 
    reduced-sodium chicken broth
  • 1/4  teaspoon 
    dried thyme, crushed
  • 3/4  cup 
    chopped cooked chicken breast
  • 1/4  cup 
    plain fat-free Greek yogurt
  • 1/4  cup 
    frozen peas
  • 2   tablespoons 
    snipped fresh parsley
  • 1   
    egg white, lightly beaten
For the crust dough:

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.
For the 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.
  • *Test Kitchen Tip: If desired, divide chicken mixture among two 8-ounce oven-going coffee mugs (shallow and wide work best). Continue as directed.
