This recipe is a favorite in our house. Using the puff pastry makes it very quick and easy to prepare. I also use pie pastry when I don't have puff pastry on hand. I usually make this pie in a 9"x13" baking dish but when it's busy I just divide it into two 8" square dishes. Notes: If chicken breasts are frozen just boil them in water and remove skins. You can always add your harder vegetables to cook with the chicken. Cubed carrots, potatoes, etc. A great tip if you're like me and don't tend to keep cream, buttermilk or whipping cream on hand. I buy these containers and divide them into muffin tins and freeze. Then I pop them out and store them in resealable bags. Each cube is about 1/4 cup.
