Meanwhile, heat the oven to 375°F. Heat the oil in a large pot over medium-high heat.
Add the leeks, carrots, and ½ teaspoon of the salt and cook, stirring often, until beginning to soften, 8 to 10 minutes (decrease the heat, as necessary, to prevent
scorching). Stir in the flour and cook for 1 minute. Gradually stir in the wine and 2½ cups of the reserved chicken broth and bring to a boil. Add the peas, parsley, tarragon, pepper, chicken, and the remaining ½ teaspoon salt.
Transfer to an 8-inch square (1½-quart) baking dish or 9-inch pie plate. Place the puff pastry over the top of the chicken and vegetables, letting it hang over the sides of the dish, and cut vents in the top. Place the dish on a rimmed baking sheet and bake until the top is golden brown and crisp, 35 to 40 minutes.
Tip: You can make the filling up to a day in advance, transfer it to the baking dish, and refrigerate. When ready to bake, top with the puff pastry, and then bake according to recipe instructions, adding 5 to 10 minutes to the cooking time.
