  1. Preheat oven to 400F (204C) degrees.
  2. Melt butter in a Dutch oven over medium-heat. Add onions and sweet potatoes with a dash of salt and saute for ~3 minutes. Add flour and stir until it's all mixed through.
  3. Next add stock, milk, chipotles, and frozen corn. Bring to a boil and then simmer until the mixture starts to thicken, ~5 minutes. Season to taste with salt & pepper. Add in chicken.
  4. Transfer into a baker, like a 9x9 Pyrex, and cover with puff pastry / pie crust (if it's too big, trim with scissors). Pinch edges close.
  5. If you want to do an egg wash for more golden browning, whisk yolk with water and brush onto puff pastry. Make a few slits with a knife and bake in the oven for 15 to 20 minutes, until golden.
  6. While pot pies are cooking, place garlic and snap peas in a microwave safe container or a glass Pyrex bowl. Add 1 tbsp (14.8 ml) of water and sprinkle with salt. Cover with a lid or wet paper towel and microwave for 2 to 3 minutes. Cook until snap peas are tender but still have a snap.
  7. While snap peas are cooking, mix together butter, mustard, and syrup. Toss with hot peas to melt the butter. Season to taste with salt and pepper. Enjoy with your homey pot pies.
