Easy Chicken Pot Pie

4 Tablespoons butter or margarine
4 Tablespoons flour
¼ teaspoon salt
dash pepper
1 cup hot water
1 teaspoon chicken bullion granules
1 cup milk
2 cups cooked chicken or turkey, chopped
frozen or cooked vegetables, as desired *
1 can refrigerator biscuits **

* Can use your favorite fresh or frozen vegetables including carrots, peas, green beans, potatoes, etc. – if vegetables are frozen, small pieces do not need to be pre-cooked before adding to other ingredients as they will cook while heating pie

Melt butter and whisk in flour. Add water, salt, pepper, milk and bullion granules. Stir constantly over medium heat until thickened. Add chicken or turkey and desired amount of vegetables.

Pour mixture into a square or round casserole dish. Arrange biscuits on top to form a crust. Bake at 450 degrees for 10-15 minutes or until bubbly and biscuits are lightly golden.
Serve immediately.

** Mixed biscuit mix can also be substituted for can of refrigerator biscuits. Just mix together and spread on top of pie filling. Bake as directed. I have also used a small box of corn muffin mix (mixed as directed on package for an 8 by 8 pan of cornbread) as the topping for a sweeter crust!

Serving Suggestions – homemade rolls or bread sticks and extra vegetables on the side
