1 c all-purpose flour
1¾ t salt
1 t dried thyme

1 pastry for a 9 inch double crust pie
Cook potatoes and carrots until tender. Drain and set aside. In a large skillet, sauté onion in butter until tender. Stir in the flour, salt, thyme, and pepper and blend, gradually stir in broth and milk. Bring to a boil, cooking with constant stirring for about 2 minutes or until thickened. Add the chicken, peas, potatoes and carrots; remove from the heat.
Line two 9-inch pie plates with bottom pastry. Fill pastry shells with chicken mixture. Roll remaining pastry to fit top of pies.  Place top crust over filling; trim, seal and flute edges.
Bake one pot pie at 425˚ for 35-40 minutes or until crust is lightly browned. Let stand for 15 minutes before cutting.
