  7. Add the cubed chicken, carrots, peas, onions and parsley. Mix well until heated through.
  8. Remove from heat and divide equally among 4-6 oven proof bowls.
  9. Roll out pie crust and cut ½ inch larger diameter than the diameter of your bowl.
  10. In a small bowl, add the egg and a splash of water and whisk with a fork until blended.
  11. Place the dough circles over the filled bowls. Crimp the dough to fold over the side, pressing it to make it stick. *You can add egg wash to the edges of the dough to help adhere it to the bowl. Brush the top of the dough with egg wash and make 3 slits in the top to vent.
