Stir with whisk until mixture is well blended. Reduce heat to medium-low, cook and stir 2 minutes or until mixture turns golden. Add 1 cup of the stock and whisk until mixture is smooth.Whisk in remaining stock and heavy cream until smooth. Stirring constantly, bring to boil and boil 1 minute or until sauce is thick. Season with remaining salt and pepper. Pour over mixture in skillet, then toss gently until well coated. Fill ramekins or dish about 3/4 full with chicken mixture. Place a pastry round on top of each ramekin or place pastry on top of dish. Press excess pastry firmly all around side of dishes.
