Chicken Pot Pie

This is the best pot pie recipe I have ever had.  When I had my first baby, now 5, Natasha brought me a meal, and this was it.  I was in a bible study with Natasha, this girl's talent is endless.  It's a simple easy recipe and oh so good!  Talk about comfort food!

1/3 cup butter
1/3 cup flour
1/3 cup onion
1/2 tsp each salt and pepper
1 can chicken broth
2/3 cup milk
1 1/2-3 cups cooked diced chicken
2 cups frozen mixed veggies
Pastry for two 9 inch pie crusts (meijer deep dish frozen crusts work great if you don't make your own)

Melt butter in sauce pan.  Stir in flour, salt, pepper, onion.  Cook, stirring until bubbly.  Remove from heat.  Stir in broth and milk, return to heat, let boil, stirring 1 minute or so until thick.  Add cooked chicken and veggies.  Pour into pie crust, place top pastry over filling, seal edges and flute.  Cut in vents.  Bake at 425 for 35-45 minutes.  Set for 15 minutes to let it thicken and cool before serving.
