Directions for the filling

Combine first four ingredients and spoon into a 10 x 6 x 2-inch baking dish. Combine flour, salt and pepper in a heavy saucepan. Gradually stir in milk and broth. Cook over medium heat, stirring constantly, until thickened and bubbly. Pour sauce over chicken- vegetable mixture; top with crust. Turn pastry edges under and press firmly to rim of casserole to seal, then flute. Cut slits in crust to allow steam to escape. Bake at 350 degrees for 40 minutes or until crust is lightly browned.

Yield: 6 servings.

Directions for the Crust

Combine flour, baking powder and salt; stir in remaining ingredients, blending well. Refrigerate dough at least 2 hours. Turn dough out into a lightly floured surface. Roll to 1/4 inch thickness; trim to 1/2 inch larger than casserole.

Yield: Pastry for 1 single-crust pie.
