    4 tablespoons unsalted butter
    3 medium carrots, cut into 1/2-inch pieces
    1 celery stalk (with leaves), cut into 1/2-inch pieces
    1 large onion diced
    1/3 cup all-purpose flour
    4 cups chicken broth, homemade or low-sodium canned
    Freshly ground black pepper
    1/4 cup minced parsley leaves
    1 tablespoon minced fresh dill
    4 cups 3/4 inch diced chicken

    Biscuit Dough
    2 cups all-purpose flour, plus more for dusting
    1 tablespoon baking powder
    1 teaspoon sugar
    1 teaspoon fine salt
    8 tablespoons cold unsalted butter,sliced
    3/4 cup milk, plus for brushing the top
    1 egg white


To make the stew: Heat the butter in a 9-inch cast-iron skillet over medium-high heat. Add the carrot, celery, mushrooms, and salt and cook, stirring occasionally, until lightly browned, about 4 minutes. Add the onions and cook, stirring, until browned, about 1 minute more. Stir in the flour and cook, stirring, for 1 minute. Pour in the chicken broth, bring the stew to a boil, stirring constantly. Simmer until the mixture is very thick, about 3 minutes. Add the chicken and return to a boil. Remove from the heat. Season with pepper to taste and stir in the parsley, chives, and dill. Set aside while you make the biscuit topping.

To make the biscuit dough: In a large bowl whisk the flour, baking powder, sugar, and salt until evenly combined. Rub 2 tablespoons of the butter into the flour with your fingertips, until it is completely absorbed. Work the remaining butter into the flour until it is in even pieces about the size of a pea. Add the lemon zest to the milk. Gently stir the milk into the flour mixture to make a loose dough.

Lightly dust a clean work surface with flour and turn the dough out onto it. Pat the dough by hand into a 1/2-inch thick rectangle. Fold the dough in thirds like a business letter. After folding the biscuit dough into thirds, pat into a 10-inch wide disc.

Preheat the oven to 450 degrees F.

Bring the chicken and vegetable mixture to a boil and place the biscuit dough on top. Using a paring knife, make a small hole in the center of the dough. Beat a little milk with and egg white. Using a pastry brush, brush the biscuit top lightly with milk/egg mixture. Transfer the skillet to a baking sheet and bake until golden brown, about 20 minutes. Let the pie rest at room temperature for 5 minutes before serving.
