Easy Chicken Pot Pie

1 egg
1 tablespoon water
6 cups diced cooked turkey or chicken
5 cups frozen mixed vegetables or your favorite frozen vegetable blend
1/2 cup butter
1/2 cup all-purpose flour
4 cups chicken broth
1/4 teaspoon ground black pepper
1/2 of a 17.3-ounce package Pepperidge Farm® Puff Pastry Sheets (1 sheet), thawed according to package directions
2 tablespoons coarsely chopped fresh herbs (parsley, thyme and/or oregano)

Heat the oven to 400°F. Beat the egg and water in a small bowl with a fork.

Stir the turkey and vegetables in a 3-quart (13 x 9-inch) shallow baking dish.

Heat the butter in a 2-quart saucepan over medium heat. Add the flour and cook and stir for 3 minutes. Gradually stir the broth into the saucepan. Cook and stir for 5 minutes or until the mixture boils and thickens. Stir in the black pepper. Pour the broth mixture over the turkey mixture.

Unfold the pastry sheet on a lightly floured surface. Roll the pastry sheet into a 13 x 9-inch rectangle. Place the pastry over the filling. Press the pastry to the rim to seal. Brush the pastry with the egg mixture and sprinkle with the herbs.  Cut several slits in the pastry.

Bake for 25 minutes or until the pastry is golden brown and the filling is hot and bubbling.  Let cool on a wire rack for 20 minutes.

From whence it came:   My wonderful mom cut this recipe out of a magazine and gave it to me to try.  My wonderful mom doesn't cook much these days, she's too busy having fun.  But I'm glad she has my back when it comes to good recipes.  Actually, I'm glad she has my back in general!

Why it's blogable:
  This recipe has great flavor, and it's so easy to make.  It looks kind of fancy with the puff pastry on top, people will think you slaved over it.  And you should let them!
