Chicken in a Potato Basket

This is a little bit different twist to a potpie.  It is a good twist and you can changed it up to fit your tastes.  It is a dish with options.
Chicken in a Potato Basket
4-1/2 cups frozen shredded hashbrowns, thawed
6 Tablespoons melted butter
1/2 cup chopped onion
1/4 cup butter
1/4 cup flour
2 teaspoons chicken bouillon
1/4 teaspoon dried basil
1/2 teaspoon Worcestershire sauce
2 cups milk
2 cups chicken, cooked and cubed
1/2 cup peas
3/4 cup diced carrots
Preheat oven to 375 degrees.
In a large bowl combine the potatoes and butter together.  Press into a lightly greased pie pan, casserole dish or custard cups.
In a saucepan, saute the onion in butter.  Add the flour, bouillon, Worcstershire sauce and basil.  Stir in the milk.  Bring to a boil and cook and stir for two minutes or until thickened. Add chicken, peas and carrots.  If  desired add salt and pepper to taste. Spoon into the prepared crust.
Bake uncovered for 20 minutes. 
 **Now here is where the option comes in.  You can either bake it for another 10-15 minutes until crust is golden brown or:
1 cup baking mix (like Bisquick)
1/3 cup milk
Mix together until a dough forms. Knead until you have a soft dough. Remove the pie from the oven and
take off small pieces of dough and place on top of the filling.
Continue until the top is covered and all the dough is used.
Return to oven ans bake for 10-15 minutes or until the biscuits have turned light golden brown.
Either way it is delicious!!
