Easy, Healthy Family Meals- Chicken Pot Pie

We made this the other night and added enough extra vegetables that I got two pans out of it.
Chicken Pot Pie (a hodge podge of other recipes). Picture

Crust: (Biscuit like topping on the top) ( This is for 2 tops)
4c Whole Wheat Flour
1 tsp salt
8 tsp baking soda
6 Tb butter
2 c milk

2lbs chicken, cubed and cooked, (I used boneless skinless chicken breasts that I grilled int he dutch oven)
6 small potatoes, cubed and cooked, (I boiled them until soft but not mushy, then drained that water)
2 c Chicken broth
2 c Milk
Salt, Pepper
2 med bags of frozen mixed Veggies, peas, carrots, beans, peas

Preheat oven to 350. Cook Chicken, set aside. Cook potatoes, set aside. In dutch oven or large pot combine chicken, potatoes, broth and milk, simmer then add vegetables, bring to simmer again. Boil until it thickens, with the FF milk it might need some cornstarch whisked in.

When mixture has thicken pour into two baking dishes. I used a dutch oven and an oval dish I had. It doesn't really matter.

Make your biscuit dough. Divide it in half. With your fingers you will just kind of spread the dough on top of the mixture to make the top.

Bake in oven at 350 fo 30 min until browned on top. (If freezing one of them, don't bake it wait until you are ready to use it. Then thaw it before trying to cook it, otherwise you'll be cooking if for 2 hours like I was and it was still cold in the middle)

Makes about 12 huge servings.
