When you purchase puff pastries they are frozen. To allow the process to go smoothly, allow the puff pastry to thaw before making these chicken pot pies. That way, when it’s time to top the ramekins off, the puff pastry will be easy to work with. Pinch the pastry down over the ramekins to hold them in place.
Changing the temperatures during baking will allow the puff pastries to brown evenly and not burn. Place the ramekins onto a baking dish to make it easier to pull them out of the oven and catch any over-spills. Starting out at 425° and reducing the heat to 400° creates a beautiful brown and flaky crust. Allow the ramekins to cool – they will be very hot to the touch!
