    The hardest part of this recipe was trying to decide which type of frozen mixed vegetables I wanted to use.I'm in Canada, and found it hard to find sheets of puff pastry to use (maybe it's just my grocery store), so I substituted some Pillsbury Biscuits instead. My husband and I loved it!

    My family really liked this recipe. I didn't make the ghosts but just baked the pastry then cut into squares and using one square on the bottom, a layer of baked chicken mixture, and then a square on top. It was the perfect meal to serve on a rainy cold autumn night. Will make again.
