Inside Out Chicken Pot Pies

1 sheet thawed puff pastry

1 can cream of chicken soup

1 Cup milk (I used skim and it was fine)

1 can chunk chicken, drained (from Costco)

1 can drained mixed vegetables

ΒΌ teaspoon cajun seasoning (I use Emerils)

Pinch of salt and pepper

Pinch of garlic salt

Rosemary Sprigs for garnish, if desired

1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees F. Carefully unfold pastry onto a lightly floured counter. Cut into 9 equal size squares and place onto an ungreased cookie sheet. Bake for about 15 minutes or until golden brown. Set aside.

2. While pastry is baking, whisk together the soup and milk in a large bowl then transfer to a large skillet over medium heat. Add chicken, vegetables and seasonings. Break up chicken pieces with back of fork. Cook and stir until heated through, about 5 minutes.

3. Place puff pastry squares on serving plates and spoon chicken gravy over top. Garnish with sprigs of rosemary if desired.
