    Pot Pie with Cheese Biscuits Topping

    For the Chicken Pie Filling:
    1 carrot, diced
    1 potato, diced
    5 tbs butter
    1 onion, diced
    1 stalk celery, sliced
    1 lb chicken breasts, boneless, cut into 1-inch cubes
    5 tbs flour
    1 1/2 cups chicken stock
    1 cup peas, thawed from frozen
    1/2 tsp thyme
    1 tsp salt, kosher, to taste
    1/2 tsp black pepper
    3 tbs heavy cream

    For the Cheese and Green Onion Biscuits:
    2 cups all-purpose flour
    2 1/2 tsp baking powder
    1/2 tsp salt
    1/4 tsp baking soda
    7 tbs butter, chilled and cut into small pieces
    1 cup cheddar cheese, sharp and shredded
    2 tbs green onions, finely chopped
    Optional: 1/2 tsp cayenne pepper
    3/4 cup buttermilk
    1 egg yolk, mixed with 2 tsp of water for topping

    Put the diced carrots and potatoes in a small saucepan and cover with water. Place the pan over medium heat and bring to a boil. Cover and cook for about 10 min, or until the vegetables are tender. Drain and set aside.
    In a deep skillet or sauté pan over medium heat, melt the 5 tbs of butter. Add the onions and celery and sauté for about 2 min. Add the chicken pieces and continue cooking, stirring, until the chicken pieces are opaque.
    Add the 5 tbs of flour to the chicken mixture and cook, stirring, for 2 min. Add the chicken stock and thawed frozen peas. Cook, stirring, until thickened. Add the potatoes and carrots, thyme, salt, to taste, pepper, and heavy cream. Cook, stirring, for about 3 min longer. Pour the mixture into a 2-quart baking dish.
    Heat the oven to 350°.
    In a food processor, combine the 2 cups of flour, baking powder, salt, and baking soda. Pulse to mix well. Add the pieces of chilled butter and pulse several times, or until the mixture resembles ​coarse meal.
    Pour the flour mixture into a large bowl and add the cheese, green onions, and cayenne, if using. Mix well.
    Add the buttermilk to the flour mixture and mix with hands or a spoon just until the dough begins to hold together.
    Turn the dough out onto a lightly floured surface and knead a few times, just to combine. For the softest biscuits, take care not to overwork the dough. Pat the dough into a rectangle and cut out as desired using a knife, pizza cutter, or biscuit cutters.
    Place the biscuits on the chicken pie filling.
    Combine the egg yolk with 2 tsp of water. Brush lightly over each biscuit.
    Bake in the preheated oven for 25 to 30 min, or until the biscuits are golden brown and the filling is bubbling.
