                         pastry for double crust pie
    1      package       frozen peas & carrots (10 oz)
      1/2  cup           onion -- chopped
      1/2  cup           fresh mushrooms -- chopped
      1/4  cup           butter or margarine
      1/3  cup           all-purpose flour
      1/2  teaspoon      salt
      1/2  teaspoon      dried sage, marjoram or thyme -- crushed
      1/8  teaspoon      pepper
    2      cups          chicken broth
      3/4  cup           milk
    3      cups          cooked chicken or turkey -- cubed
      1/4  cup           snipped parsley
      1/4  cup           pimiento -- chopped
 
 Prepare pastry; set aside.  Cook peas and carrots according to package
 directions; drain.  In a saucepan cook onion and mushrooms in butter or
 margarine till tender.  Stir in flour, salt, sage, marjoram or thyme and
 pepper.  Add chicken broth and milk all at once.  Cook and stir till
 thickened and bubbly.  Stir in drained peas and carrots, chicken or turkey,
 parsley, and pimiento; heat till bubbly.  Pour chicken mixture into six 10
 ounce round casseroles (or use a 12 X 7 1/2 X 2 baking dish).
 
 Roll pastry into a 15 X 10 rectangle.  Cut into six 5 circles and place
 atop the 10 ounce casseroles. (Or, roll pastry into a 13 X 9 rectangle.
  Place over the 12 X 7 1/2 X 2 baking dish).  Flute edges of pastry and cut
 slits in the top for steam to excape.  Bake in a 450F degree oven for 12-15
 minutes or till pastry is golden brown.
 
 Biscuit-Topped Chicken Potpies:  Prepare as above, except omit pastry.  Cut 1
 package (6) refrigerated biscuits into quarters and arrange atop bubbly
 chicken mixture in casseroles or baking dish.  Bake in a 400F degree oven
 about 15 minutes or till biscuits are golden.
