Mama Steph's rustic chicken pot pie

Ingredients:

1 box containing two pie crusts
1 12-ounce bag of frozen mixed garden vegetables (there are many varieties now, so choose your favorite. Mine was carrot, green bean, and corn. Alternatively, use fresh vegetables, chopped, to equal just under 2 cups. Fresh carrots might need a bit of precooking for tenderness)
1 small onion, chopped, or a shallot, minced
1 cup fresh mushroom slices (optional)
1 TBS fresh sage leaves, minced (if available)
3 1/2 to 4 cups chunked cooked chicken
2 TBS butter
4 TBS plain flour
2 cups chicken broth
1/2 cup milk
salt and pepper, to taste

Method:

1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees F. Line one large or two medium baking sheets with parchment paper.
2. Carefully roll pie crusts out flat on the parchment to make two smaller pies, or stack the crusts and roll out to make one large pie.
3. In a large frying pan, melt butter over medium heat. Add the flour, and cook together for two minutes, stirring continuously.
4. Add chicken broth, and whisk until smooth and silky. Cook for three or four minutes, simmering until somewhat thickened. Taste, and sprinkle with about 1/2 tsp salt at a time. Do not oversalt the gravy, or you’ll need to start over.
5. When thickened and salted appropriately, take off heat. In a small bowl containing the milk, add a few tablespoons of gravy, to help temper the milk so it won’t curdle when added to the hot gravy. Stir it well, then add it to the pan. Whisk together, and taste.
6.  In a large mixing bowl, combine all the vegetables, the sage, the chicken and the gravy. Stir gently until uniformly coated.
7.  Pile the mixture in the center of your crusts, leaving a two or three inch border all around, then begin gently folding up the sides, crimping every several inches, not stressing out over perfection; you’re just building walls to hold in the delicious filling. Remember, RUSTIC.
8. Place in hot oven, and bake for 30 to 35 minutes, until crust is golden brown. Since I had two, I rotated their positions after 15 minutes, then baked for 20 more.
9. Allow to cool on sheet for 10 minutes, then slide paper off onto cooling rack. Serve warm.

    On Monday the Associated Press released its top 25 preseason poll for college football. And for the third straight year, Texas A&M didn't make the cut. Starting fast though and moving their way up the polls in recent seasons hasn't been the problem. In fact, the Aggies, who have over a dozen East Texans on the roster, were number four in the initial playoff rankings last year.
