To make the chicken pot pie filling

  • Preheat oven to 425 degrees F. Melt the butter in a large skillet or oven-safe pan. Add the onions, carrots, celery, salt, pepper, and thyme; sauté for 5 minutes. The onions will look tanslucent.
  • Add the flour; stir and sauté for 1-2 minutes. Add the wine and let it soak into the vegetables for a few minutes. Slowly and gradually, add the milk and the chicken broth, stirring after each addition.
  • The mixture should resemble a thick, delicious creamy soup. Add chicken and peas. Let mixture simmer for 5 minutes, stirring occasionally. See below how to make biscuits: Arrange biscuits on top of filling and brush the top of the biscuits with melted butter for extra browning.
  • Bake for 15-20 minutes, until hot, bubbly, and biscuits are cooked through and slighly browned.

To make the biscuits

  • In a large mixing bowl, combine flour, baking powder, cornstarch, sugar, and salt. Whisk to combine.
  • Add the cold cubed butter. With a pastry blender, or with your hands cut the butter until pea-size clumps. Add buttermilk and mix until the dough becomes moist and no loose pockets of flour remain.
  • You can either roll out and cut the biscuits or divide the dough into 12 pieces and form 12 "rustic" biscuits by hand. Set aside.
