Was stuck at home in the snow and ice over the weekend and decided to try this one, perfect for a winter's night. I roasted my own chicken but did not make my own pie crust. I substituted herbs de provence (1 T) for the herb blend and 3 cups broth mixed with 1/3 cup flour worked perfectly for me, not runny at all! Watch the total baking time, mine finished about 6 minutes early and the lattice would've burned had I not checked. Family already wants this again.
