    2 C chicken broth
    1 C half-and-half
    4 C chopped cooked chicken
    1 C frozen peas, thawed
    1 tsp. salt

Saute first 3 ingredients in butter in a skillet over medium heat until tender. Add flour; stir until smooth. Cook 1 minute stirring constantly. Add chicken broth and half-and-half; cook, stirring constantly, until thickened and bubbly. Stir in chicken, peas, salt, and pepper.
To prepare pastry mix flour and salt. Cut shortening into flour till the size of peas. Add water 1T at a time and mix gently.

Roll remaining 4 portions of circles over filling; fold edges under and flute. Cut slits in tops to allow steam to escape.
