  • For egg wash :

Instructions
  1. Preheat oven to 425 F. Prepare a baking pan or tray lined with aluminium foil or parchment paper.
  2. Prepare the filling. Marinade the chicken with rosemary,cajun spice and lemon juice. Heat a pan on medium high and add 1 tbsp oil into it. Stir in the chicken and cook for 4-6 minutes until the chicken is no longer pink on the outside.Remove the chicken and set aside in a medium bowl.
  3. In the same pan, add the remaining olive oil and heat. Add the onions and garlic. Saute till the onions become soft and translucent. Add mushrooms, carrot, peas, corns, salt as required, cayenne and white pepper powder. Stir and mix and cook till the water from the mushrooms evaporates and they become soft.
  4. Lower the heat, add butter and let it melt. Add the flour and cook for 1-2 minutes. Slowly add in the chicken broth and milk. Stir continuously and bring the mixture to a simmer. Cook until the sauce thickens. Remove the pan from the heat and add the fried chicken. Cover and set aside.
  5. Next, we prepare for the biscuits.Combine and sieve together flour, baking soda, baking powder and salt into a mixing bowl.Add the cubed butter and mix it till the flour blends well with the butter.
  6. Add cold buttermilk intermittently and knead it into a smooth dough. Make sure that the dough is not dry.
  7. Using your hands, gently pat the dough out until it is ½ inch thickness. Fold the dough about 4 times and gently press the dough down to a 1 inch thick.
  8. Use a round cutter to cut into rounds. Divide each round into 6 equal wedges using a pizza cutter. Refrigerate excess dough for future use.
  9. Pour the warm pie filling mixture equally into 2 large ramekins or custard cups. Brush each biscuit wedges with egg wash and place 6 biscuit wedges with egg washed-side down, around edges of each cup, overlapping slightly and leaving hole in the center for steam to escape. Brush the top of the biscuits with egg wash and sprinkle little ground black pepper over it.
  10. Place the ramekins on the baking dish and bake it in the preheated oven for 15 minutes. Decrease the heat to 400 degrees F and bake for another 3-5 minutes until the biscuit is puffed and golden brown and the filling starts bubbling.
  11. Take out the individual chicken and biscuits pot pie and cool on a rack for 10 minutes before serving.
Notes
I am sharing the tip to prepare chicken stock at home. You will need chicken bouillon cubes for this. 1 bouillon cube makes 1 cup of chicken stock or broth. Bring 1 cup of water to a boil and add a bouillon cube into it. Stir and mix till the cube dissolves . You can use this stock as a replacement for chicken broth.
