Chicken Pot Pie in Puff Pastry Shells

I had some left-over chicken from a baked chicken that I bought at the grocery store and decided to make these for dinner.  I like to keep these puff pastry shells in my freezer for such nights as tthat I don't know what to cook.

Printable Recipe:

2 tablespoons butter
2 tablespoons flour
1 cup milk
1 small onion
1 clove of garlic
salt and pepper to taste
1/2 bag of frozen mixed vegetables
puff pastry shells
1 chicken breast cooked and shredded
Preheat the oven to 400 degrees.  Bake the pastry shells according to package directions. Take out of the oven and set aside. Remove the top disc of pastry for later use.  In a medium size saucepan melt butter and add flour. Stir until well incorporated. Add onion and garlic. Cook until onions have softened. Add milk and stir until mixture is a thick consistency. Add salt, pepper, mixed vegetables and chicken.  Cook for about 3 min. to let the vegetables cook a little.  Divide the mixture evenly among the puff pastry shells. Place the round disc of pastry on top. Enjoy.
