Made Over Chicken Pot Pie

I found this in one of my old Kraft Foods magazines.....and oh boy..am I glad I did!
The puff pastry (NOT Phillo dough) for the top is to die for...and adding velveeta (because we can all admit we love processed cheese in the form of a brick!) is genious!
It's quick and easy and yummy. I used 1 1/3 of puff pastry sheets (you can see where they are pieced together). Oh...and if you don't have velveeta and you go to buy it...get the SMALL brick. I bought the regular size, and only needed 1/8 of it! So...now I have lots of cheese brick in the fridge.
Hmmm....what can I do with that?
Anyway, enjoy!
