Ingredients:  
3 cups chicken broth
1 16 oz. package of frozen mixed peas, carrots, green beans and corn, thawed
1 c. potatoes
1 c. sweet potato
3/4 c. onion
2 1/2 to 3 cups chicken, shredded
2/3 c. flour
1 1/2 c. milk
1 1/2 tsp. salt
1 tsp. peper
Cooking spray
1 sheet frozen pastry, thawed (I like to use more though, usually 1 full and 1 half of another)

Directions:
Directions:
Preheat oven to 400. Bring broth to boil in a large pot and add veggies. Reduce to a simmer and cook for 6 minutes. Add chicken and cook for 5 minutes, or until done (I often use leftover chicken so I just simmer it for a few minutes). Remove chicken and veggies from pot with a slotted spoon. Increase heat to medium. Spoon flour lightly into measuring cup, level with knife. Place. all but 1 tablespoon of flour into a medium bowl, gradually add milk, whisking until well blended. Add milk mixture to the broth, cook for 5 minutes until thickened, stirring frequently. Stir back in chicken and veggies. Spoon mixture into an 11 x 7 baking dish coated with cooking spray. Sprinkle remaining 1 tablespoon of flour onto work surface, roll dough into a 13x9 rectangle. Place dough over the chicken mixture, pressing to seal at the edges of the dish. Cut slits in dough for steam to escape, and coat dough lightly with cooking spray.

Place on a foil lined baking dish (to make clean up easy if there is a bubble over). Bake for 15 minutes or until pastry is golden and filling is bubbly.

Personal Notes:
If you want to make a non dairy version, try this:
after you take out the chicken and veggies, pour the broth into another container. In the large pot, make a rue out of margarine and flour and slowly add the broth back into the pot, adding another cup of broth along with it. Allow it to thicken and then add back in the veggies and chicken. It's just as good!
