Chicken Pot Pie

2 pie crusts, softened

1/3 cup butter
1/3 cup onion, chopped 
1/3 cup flour
1/2 teaspoon seasoning salt
1/4 teaspoon pepper
1 3/4 cups chicken broth
1/2 cup milk
2 1/2 cups chicken; cooked and shredded
2 cups frozen mixed vegetables, thawed

Preheat oven to 425° F.

Make pie crusts as directed on box for Two-Crust Pie using 9-inch glass pie pan.

In a large saucepan, melt butter over medium heat. Add onion and cook 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 crust-lined pan.
