reserved 1 cup chicken broth to boiling. Reduce heat to low; cover and
simmer 10 minutes or until vegetables are almost tender. Remove from heat.
With slotted spoon, remove vegetables to medium-sized bowl.
4. In small bowl, blend 1/2 cup flour with 3/4 cup half-and-half; gradually
stir into broth in saucepan; stir in remaining half-and-half. Over low
heat, cook, stirring until sauce thickens slightly. Stir in chicken, cooked

dough into 15x11" rectangle. With knife, cut several small slits in center

mixture. Bake pie in 350'F oven 1 hour or until crust is golden and chicken
mixture is heated through.
