  3. In a separate large mixing bowl whisk together the cream & eggs until fluffy. Season with salt & pepper.
  4. Stir in the chicken, feta cheese & broccoli mixture. Set aside while you roll out the pastry dough.
  5. Roll out pastry dough to 1/4 inch thick. Transfer to a 9-inch round pie dish & crimp edges as desired.
