Gradually stir in chicken broth, milk, salt, rosemary and pepper. Cook 6 minutes or until sauce thickens, stirring constantly. Stir in chicken mixture, corn, peas and bread crumbs. Remove saucepan from heat; let stand 15 minutes.
- Spoon vegetable mixture into prepared crust. (Arrange cutouts over top of pie, if desired.) Brush with additional milk.
- Bake 50 minutes or until filling is set. (If crust browns too much before filling sets, cover with strips of aluminum foil.) Cut into 4 wedges to serve.
