Ingredients:  
1 10 oz. pckg frozen peas and carrots (or you can use fresh carrots- slice them, cook them and put them aside.)
1/3 cup margarine or butter
1/3 cup flour
1/3 cup chopped onion
1/2 tsp salt
1/4 tsp pepper
1 3/4 cup chicken broth
2/3 cup milk
2/1/2-3 cups cooked chopped turkey or chicken (leftovers work great, boiled, baked or grilled.)

Pastry for 9 inch two crust pie- use your favorite or here is mine.

2 cups flour
1 tsp salt
2/3 cup shortening
5-7 T cold water

Directions:
Directions:
Put flour, salt and shortening in a bowl. Cut shortening into flour with pastry cutter or two knives. Add water 1 T at a time. Fluff with fork. Move moistened dough to the side. Continue adding 1 T of water until all dough in moistened. Do not mix any more than necessary! The less you work with it the flakier the crust. Cover bowl with towel and set aside while making filling.

Rinse off peas and carrots. Set aside. Melt margarine in a pan. Add onion and saute until transparent. Stir in flour, salt and pepper. Stir until bubbly. Stir in broth and milk. Boil 1 minute. Stir in chicken, peas and carrots. Take 2/3 of the pastry and roll into a 13 in square for a 9x9 in pan- or a circle just bigger than your pie plate. Pour in filling. Roll our rest of dough- 11 in square for 9x9 pan, or circle for pie plate. Poke holes in top with a fork for venting. Put over top and pinch edges. Bake at 425 for 35 minutes. Watch edges. If necessary, cover edges with foil to keep them from burning.

Personal Notes:
This is probably my most requested meal from friends and family. It really is easy. Don't be scared off my the pie crust. If you truly don't trust yourself, buy a ready made crust at the grocery store. Also, when I make this, I usually make 3-4 at at time and freeze the others. I make sure I have some of the extra large ziploc bags and I can just slide the pies right in. They are great to take to neighbors, or pull out of the freezer for a ready made meal.
