1/4 cup butter
3 teaspoons of extra virgin olive oil first-cold press
1/2 cup chopped onion
1 handful of chopped carrots
1 handful of chopped peas

1/2 cup whole wheat flour

1/3 teaspoon ground black pepper
2 cups of chicken broth
1 cup of milk

You will want to start by preheating your oven to 420 degrees fahrenheit. While the oven is preheating you will want to melt the butter on a large pan. take the prepared vegetables and place them in the pan. Cover them with the salt and the pepper. Place the milk, chicken broth, and olive oil in a separate pot and bring the mixture to a boil. While the mixture is boiling add the whole wheat flour and stir. Let the mixture thicken as you stir and let boil until it reaches your desired thickness. Remove the pot from the stove and let it sit for three minutes. Mix in the cooked vegetables and cooked shredded chicken. Place the mixture into the premade crusted pan. Cover the pie with the premade crust cover and seal the edges. Create a few slits in the top of the crust cover. Place the pie in the over and cook for approximately 25 to 30 minutes. Check the crust to assure it is cooked and golden brown. Once the pie is cooked remove it from the oven and let it sit for fifteen minutes.
