This was a great recipe for leftover chicken or pork. I had both so they were chicken/pork pot pies. I didn't have cream cheese so I added a few Tbs of ricotta cheese since I had that on hand. Overall, the dish could have used more flavor but it was easy and the overall mild taste would be fine for kids or picky eaters.

This is one of the best tasting chicken pot pie recipes. My daughter doesn't normally like chicken pot pie but she love this recipe. My husband had 2 bowls. The only suggestion I have is make sure you take out the puff pastry to defrost. I did not take it out so we ate it without the crust ~ and I have to say it was really good and filling. It doesn't need the extra carbs.

I really liked this recipe. It was simple and yummy leftover too. Watch the puff pastry because it cooks quickly!

Made as written with rotisserie chicken I de-boned previously, so it was fast to assemble. The filling is easy and delicious, and the puff pastry is a nice crisp topping. I used a 4" tupperware container placed on the puff pastry and cut around it, then rolled to 6" with a little flour to prevent sticking. Served with CL Broccoli with Red Pepper Flakes and Toasted Garlic. Will make this again.

Very flavorful filling. The puff pastry came out a bit too puffy and airy so I'll probably bake it at a lower temperature for a bit longer next time but will not make any other changes. Makes a great winter comforting dinner

This was very yummy. Made it exactly like recipe except I added some peas to it. It is a kid friendly meal and great to serve on a cold night.

This was better than I expected, and did not require a lot of tweaking - though, who can resist? I used a little butter with the vegetables, and about twice as much thyme. Definitely use salt-free stock - mine wasn't, and the dish was a touch too salty. Next time, I won't bother with cutting the pastry into circles - I'll just cut one sheet into six squares and save time and waste.

Delicious! I made this for my husband and parents for Sunday night dinner and it was a huge hit. My husband doesn't normally like chicken pot pie but he loved this one, especially the lightness of the puff pastry. I used mascarpone cheese instead of cream cheese because I had it on hand and it really added a nice creaminess to the sauce. I thought the flavor was great (but I always add more salt than called for to Cooking Light recipes). I'm sure it would be good left over too but there wasn't any left!
