1/2 tsp. salt
1/8 tsp. pepper
1 14 1/2 oz can chicken broth

2 cups cooked cubed turkey (or chicken)
1 cup green peas (I use frozen and thaw them, of if you have leftovers use those)

1 clove garlic minced
2 tbsp, chopped green onions
Pre-heat oven to 350. Melt the butter in a saucepan, add the onions and cook for one min. Add flour and s & p, stir until blended. Gradually add broth and 1/2 c. milk. Cook until mixture boilss and thickens, stirring constantly. Add chicken and peas and mix well. Spoon into a 2 greased 2 quart casserole.
