FOR PIE CRUST
In a large bowl, mix all the pie crust ingredients except the egg white. Stir with a fork and form a ball. Use hand to form a dough. Cover and refrigerate for atleast 45 mins. (This is not a traditional way of making the pie crust, but it came out good). After 45 mins, take the dough and divide into 2 balls. Roll one ball out to fit into a 9 inch pie plate. Brush with egg white and bake in a preheated 400F oven for 7 mins. (This ensures the bottom pie crust not to get soggy).Meanwhile roll the other ball to make the top crust and set aside.
Preheat oven to 400 degree F (200 degree C)
In a large saucepan, add the olive oil. On medium heat, saute the onion until translucent. Add uncooked chicken on top of the onion 1 spoon at a time. (Ground chicken tends to form a single piece if put together). Add salt and pepper. When one side of the chicken pieces cook, turn the chicken pieces and then add the gravy and water.When it starts boiling add the carrot and potato. If the gravy is not thick, add all purpose flour(which acts as a thickening agent). Finally add the brocolli. Taste and then add more salt if needed.
Pour the thick mixture into the bottom pie crust. Cover with the top top crust and seal edges using a fork. Brush the top crust with egg white and put 1 or 2 slits on the top with a fork
Bake in the preheated 400F oven for 30 mins.
Cool for 10 mins before serving.
