Homemade Chicken Pot Pie

I have made this chicken pot pie recipe twice already this fall, it is that good!

For the crust I use this recipe and use 2/3 of it or bottom cuts and 1/3 for the top crust:
3 cups flour
6 tbsp butter
2tbsp baking powder
1/2 tsp salt
1tsp ground sage ( optional)
1cup milk

For the pie filling you can do whatever you like but I usually do:
1 bag frozen veggies (thawed in microwave)
1 boiled chicken meat (save bones for chicken stock)
1 can cream of chicken
1-2 potatoes cubed and boiled ( in with chicken)
1onion diced

To prep the crust:

Place flour in a large bowl, add baking powder, salt and sage.
Cut in butter, it should look like this...

Then add milk and mix well. This should form a ball take in a knead it a few times, then divide it into 2/3 and 1/3 dough balls. These will be the bottom and top crusts.
Roll them out with rolling pin and place the thicker crust on bottom on a 9x9 casserole dish.
Now it's time to add the filling and cover with the top crust.
