Before starting, preheat the oven to 450°F. Wash and dry all produce. Halve potatoes lengthwise, then cut into 1/4-inch half-moons. Strip 1 tbsp thyme leaves from stems (dbl for 4 ppl), then finely chop. Roughly chop parsley. Peel, then mince or grate garlic.
Heat a large pot over medium-high heat. When hot, add 1 tbsp butter (dbl for 4 ppl), then potatoes and mirepoix. Season with salt and pepper. Cook, stirring occasionally, until potatoes and mirepoix soften slightly, 4-5 min. Transfer potatoes and mirepoix to a large bowl.
Pat chicken dry with paper towels. Cut in half crosswise. Season with salt and pepper. Heat the same pot over medium. When hot, add 1 tbsp butter (dbl for 4 ppl), then chicken. Pan-fry until golden-brown, 2-3 min per side. (NOTE: The chicken will finish cooking in step 4!)
Add Cream Sauce Spice Blend, thyme and half the garlic to the pot with chicken. Cook, stirring often, until chicken is coated, 1 min. Add broth concentrate, peas, potatoes and mirepoix and 2 cups water (dbl for 4 ppl). Bring to a simmer. Once simmering, cook until veggies are tender and broth thickens slightly, 10-12 min. Season with salt and pepper, to taste. (TIP: If you prefer a brothier stew, add more water, 1/4 cup at a time.)
While stew simmers, halve rolls. Arrange on an unlined baking sheet, cut-side up. Melt 2 tbsp butter (dbl for 4 ppl) in a small pot or in microwavable bowl over low heat. Add remaining garlic and half the parsley to the pot. Season with salt and pepper, then stir to combine. Drizzle garlic butter onto cut-sides of rolls. Toast rolls in the middle of the oven until golden-brown, 3-4 min. (TIP: Keep an eye on rolls so they don't burn!)
Divide stew between bowls. Sprinkle remaining parsley over top. Serve garlic toasts alongside for dipping.
