1/3 cup butter or margarine
1/3 cup chopped onion
1/3 cup all-purpose flour
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon pepper
1 3/4 cups chicken broth
1/2 cup milk
2 1/2 cups shredded cooked chicken or turkey
2 cups frozen mixed vegetables

Instructions

Preheat oven to 425°F.

In a large saucepan, melt butter over medium heat. Add onion; cook 2 minutes, stirring frequently, until tender. Stir in flour, salt and pepper until well blended. Gradually stir in broth and milk, cooking and stirring until bubbly and thickened.

Stir in chicken and mixed vegetables. Remove from heat. Spoon chicken mixture into pre greased casserole dish. Bake 15 minutes.

Remove casserole dish from oven and plop biscuits on top of filling. Bake for the time indicated on biscuit wrapper. Mine was 11-13 minutes, I baked for 13.

Let stand 5 minutes before serving, its like molten lava.
