Directions:
For pastry: In a medium bowl mix together flour and salt. Using a pastry blender, but butter into flour until coarse crumbs form.
In a small bowl beat together egg and water. Add to the flour mixture; mix lightly until a soft dough forms. Shape into a disk, wrap in plastic wrap and chill in the refrigerator for 1 hour.
For filling: Place chicken in a 2 qt. casserole. In large skillet melt butter over low heat. Add onion and mushrooms; increase the heat to medium high and saute until browned. Add peas and corn and cook until the liquid evaporates. Add the wine; cook until almost evaporated, about 2 min. Add vegetable mixture to chicken; stir to combine.
In a medium saucepan, whisk together cream, flour, paprika, salt and pepper. Cook until thickened, about 5 min. Whisk in broth. Pour sauce over chicken mixture.
Preheat oven to 400.
On a lightly floured surface, roll the pastry to fit the top of the casserole. Place on top of pie; trim and seal the edges. Brush pastry with glaze. Bake until filling is bubbly and crust is browned, 25 - 30 min. Transfer to a wire rack to cool slightly. Serve warm.
