  5. Add cream cheese and cubed chicken.
  6. Stir until it all combines.
  7. Transfer the filling into a 9-inch baking pan.
  8. Now, to make the dough, combine flour and salt with cold butter.
  9. Cut with a knife or pulse in a food processor.
  10. Butter pieces should be the size of peas.
  11. Add the egg and grated cheese, pulse a few times to combine if using a food processor.

***Or knead with your hands - work quickly though, so the butter doesn’t melt.

  2. Place it over the filling and tuck the edges.
  3. Make a few cuts on top.
  4. You can brush your pie crust with heavy cream or egg whites to get a golden brown crust to it. Finish by sprinkling some sesame seeds on top.
