Southwestern Chicken Pie

Brushing egg on the top of the pie before baking gives the crust of this main-course pie a shiny, golden-brown finish.

This is one of those dinners you just love to make when there’s no time and just a whole bunch of people that are hungry – most of this can be made ahead of time except for the crust!!!
