chicken thighs, skinless and boneless
1/2 tsp
salt
1/4 tsp
ground black pepper
1 1/2 c
half and half (i used fat free)

1 1/2 c
frozen mixed vegetables - thawed (use your favorite mix)

potatoes - cooked and cubed
1 Tbsp

1/2 tsp
thyme, dried
2
pie crust (i mix up bisquick biscuits and rolled out 2 crusts)
1
egg - slightly beaten (i added a small amount of water)
2 c
chicken broth

Directions Step-By-Step

1
In a large saucepan over medium high heat, combine the chicken breasts, thighs, chicken broth, salt and pepper. Bring to a boil and reduce heat to low. Cover and let simmer for 30 min., or until chicken is no longer pink in the center and the juices run clear.
2
Remove the chicken and let cool. Pour remaining chicken broth mixture into a measuring cup. Let stand; spoon off fat. Add enough canned broth to equal 1 cup if needed. Add half & half to the broth to equal 2 1/2 cups. Cut chicken into 1/2 inch pieces.
3
In same pan, melt margarine over medium heat. Add the onion & celery. Sauté, stirring, for 3 min. Stir in flour until well blended. Gradually stir in broth mixture and the herbs. Simmer, stirring constantly, until the sauce thickens & boils. (you will think this is TOO MUCH liquid, but it's not. Add the chicken & vegetables to the broth & stir to combine. Line a deep pie dish with one of the pastries & pour mixture in, almost to the top.
4
cover mixture with 2nd pastry - seal edges pinching together - cut vents or prick with a fork - brush the top with egg.
5
Bake at 400 degrees for 30 minutes or until the crust is golden brown & the filling is bubbling. Let cool for 10 minutes and serve.
6
When done, the inside ingredients will be thick and creamy.
