  1. Place chicken in a slow cooker, pour chicken broth over chicken. Cover with lid and cook on low heat for about 5 hours until chicken is cooked through. Remove chicken from slow cooker, dice, and set aside.

  2. Strain broth from slow cooker through a fine-mesh strainer into a bowl and reserve broth.

To prepare the crumble:

  1. Preheat oven to 450 degrees F.

  2. In a mixing bowl, whisk together flour, baking powder, salt, pepper, garlic powder, and optional cayenne pepper. Using your fingertips, cut butter into mixture until mixture resembles coarse crumbs.

  3. Stir in Parmesan cheese. Pour in heavy cream and mix just until combined.

  4. Break and drop mixture into 1 to 2-inch pieces onto a Silpat lined baking dish. Bake in preheated oven for 10 minutes until golden. Remove from oven and set aside.

To prepare the filling:

  1. Heat olive oil over medium-high heat. Once hot, add diced carrots, onion, and celery. Saute vegetables, stirring occasionally until lightly golden and tender for about 5 to 6 minutes.

  2. Pour vegetables into a bowl and set aside. Reduce heat to medium, melt butter in a saucepan then add in flour, and cook, stirring constantly for about 20 seconds.

  3. While stirring, slowly add in milk followed by reserved chicken broth, lemon juice, parsley, thyme, and season with salt and pepper to taste.

  4. Bring mixture just to a boil then slightly reduce heat and allow to cook for about 1 minute longer until thickened, stirring constantly.

  5. Remove sauce from heat and add sauteed vegetables, frozen peas, and diced chicken to the sauce then toss to evenly coat.

  6. Pour mixture into a 9-inch pie dish and sprinkle with baked crumble topping.

  7. Bake in a 400 degrees F oven until nicely golden for about 12 to 14 minutes. Serve warm.
