  • 1 cup milk

Cook sausage in a skillet over medium heat until browned, stirring to crumble meat. Drain on paper towels; set aside. Melt butter in a 3 qt. heavy saucepan over low heat; add flour, salt, and pepper, stirring until smooth. Cook 1 minute, stirring constantly. Gradually add broth and milk; cook over medium heat, stirring constantly until thickened and bubbly. Stir in chicken, peas, and sausage; cook until thoroughly heated. Pour chicken mixture into 4 individual 1 1/2 cup baking dishes or an 8 inch square baking dish.

Roll Savory Pastry on a lightly floured surface to 1/4 inch thickness in a slightly small shape than the individual dishes or large dish; scallop edges. Place pastry over chicken mixture (edges should not touch side of dish). Decorate with pastry cut-outs, if desired. Bake at 425 degrees F for 20-25 minutes or until crust is browned.
