Step 1 

Heat oil over medium heat in a large pot. Add the onions, carrots, and celery. Cook, stirring often for 5 minutes or until onions are translucent. 

Step 2 

Add the potatoes, chicken, salt, dried basil, and stock. Bring to a boil, before lowering the heat to medium-low and simmering for 20 minutes or until potatoes are tender. 

Step 3 

Add the frozen peas and the cornstarch mixture and bring to a boil to thicken. Let cool to room temperature before pouring into a pie plate.

Step 4 

Preheat the oven to 425˚F (220˚C). Roll out the prepared dough into a circle slightly bigger than the pie plate. Place on top of the cooled filling. 

Step 5 

Trim the excess dough off leaving 1 inch overhand from the edge of the plate. Fold the overhang underneath itself and press firmly with a fork or pinch decoratively with your fingers to adhere it to the pie plate. 

Step 6 

Cut 3 slits in the top of the pie with a knife to allow steam to escape while baking. You can also cut shapes out of the dough with a small cookie cutter instead of cutting slits. Bake for 30 to 40 minutes until the crust is golden and the filling is bubbling. 

Step 7 

Allow the pie to cool slightly before serving with a vegetable side or salad for a complete meal.
