Number of Servings: 4


    2 bone-in, skin-on chicken breast halves (12 to 14 ounces each)
    Coarse salt and ground pepper
    3 tablespoons olive oil
    4 carrots, sliced 1/4 inch thick
    1 medium onion, finely chopped
    1/4 teaspoon dried thyme leaves
    1/4 cup all-purpose flour
    2 1/2 cups low-fat (1%) milk
    1 package (10 ounces) frozen peas, thawed
    2 tablespoons fresh lemon juice
    6 phyllo sheets (each 12 by 17 inches), thawed


Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Place chicken on a rimmed baking sheet; season with salt and pepper. Roast until an instant-read thermometer inserted into thickest part of breast (avoiding bone) registers 165 degrees, 25 to 30 minutes. Let cool slightly; discard skin and bones. Shred meat, and set aside.

2. While chicken is roasting, heat 2 tablespoons oil in a large saucepan over medium. Add carrots, onion, and thyme; season with salt and pepper, and cook until carrots are crisp-tender, 8 to 10 minutes. Add flour, and cook, stirring, 1 minute. Gradually add milk, stirring until smooth. Cook, stirring occasionally, until mixture comes to a simmer and thickens.

3. Remove from heat; stir in peas, lemon juice, and chicken, and season with salt and pepper. Pour filling into a 9-inch deep-dish pie plate.

4. Stack phyllo on a work surface. Using a paring knife, cut out an 11-inch circle from the stack; discard trimmings. Stack 2 circles on work surface, and brush gently with 1 teaspoon oil; repeat with remaining circles and oil. Place phyllo stack over filling, and press down about 1/2 inch from the edge so phyllo fits inside rim of pie plate. Bake until golden and bubbling, 20 to 25 minutes. Let potpie cool 15 minutes before serving.
