Add flour; cook and stir about 1 minute or until mixture is coated and flour begins to brown. Beat in chicken broth and milk. Cook and stir 3 to 4 minutes or until thick and bubbly.

    To freeze: Line 13x9-inch (3-quart) glass baking dish with plastic wrap, leaving enough overhang to completely enclose assembled pot pie filling. Cool filling completely in shallow pan, covered, 1 hour in refrigerator. Pour cooled pot pie filling into dish; cover with another layer of plastic wrap. Freeze pot pie filling about 8 hours or until completely frozen. Transfer frozen pot pie filling to labeled 2-gallon resealable freezer plastic bag. Remove air; seal and freeze up to three months. To bake: Remove plastic wrap; transfer to 13x9-inch (3-quart) glass baking dish sprayed with cooking spray. Cover tightly with foil; thaw in refrigerator up to 48 hours or until completely thawed. Bake, covered, at 400°F about 40 minutes or until filling is hot (165°F in center). Uncover; stir mixture, and place biscuit pieces on top. Bake 12 to 16 minutes or until biscuits are golden brown and cooked through. In 1-quart saucepan, melt remaining 2 tablespoons butter over low heat. Remove from heat; stir in remaining 1 tablespoon parsley and 1/2 teaspoon thyme. Brush biscuits with herbed butter.
