Preparation time: 25 minutes. Baking time: 30 minutes.



Preheat oven to 400°F. Melt margarine in a large saucepan over medium heat. Stir in flour, salt, garlic powder, pepper, parsley, and thyme; a thick paste will form. Whisk in water and 3/4 cup milk; add bouillon cubes. Continue to stir with wire whisk until mixture thickens slightly. Add mixed vegetables, onion, and chicken; stir to combine. Spoon into a 2-quart casserole coated with cooking spray and set aside.

In a mixing bowl, combine baking mix and 2/3 cup milk and stir until a soft, sticky dough forms. Drop dough by rounded tablespoonfuls on top of the chicken mixture. Bake uncovered for 30 minutes or until topping is golden and filling is bubbly.

Yield: 9 cups. Serving size: 1 cup.
