*This was inspired by the chicken photo from this article about Chef Barbara Lynch.
Ingredients for One Whole Chicken Pie:

 

1 whole chicken, between 3 1/4 and 3 1/2 pounds

 

kosher salt as needed

 

1 recipe buttercrust pastry dough (this was just barely enough)

 

1 egg beaten with 2 teaspoon of water

 

 

For the veggie stuffing:

 

1/2 yellow onion, small dice

 

1 small carrot, small dice

 

1/2 rib celery, small dice

 

1 to 2 tablespoons minced rosemary or other fresh herb

 

kosher salt, freshly ground black pepper, and cayenne to taste

 

2 teaspoons olive oil

 

 

For the sauce (this is for 4 portions, I only made 2):

 

1 tablespoon butter

 

1/2 cup veggies from inside chicken (pull out while chicken rests, but replace the crust)

 

salt to taste

 

2/3 cup white or rose wine

 

1/3 cup pan drippings and/or splash of stock

 

4 tablespoons cold butter cut in cubes

 

Note: This is a rich butter sauce, but a gravy, so you only get a few tablespoons
