Bring the chicken stock to a boil. Chop the chicken into pieces and cook them in the hot chicken stock for 5 minutes, depending on the size of the chicken pieces.
Remove from the chicken stock and let them cool off a bit before you chop them into really small pieces. Set the chicken stock aside in a measuring cup, or use a second medium-sized pan.
Peel and finely chop the onion. Chop the mushrooms and scallions into thin slices. Pre-heat the oven to 200 degrees Celsius or 390 degrees Fahrenheit.
Heat butter in a medium-sized pan, and saute the onion for a minute. Add the mushroom slices and saute for 5 minutes more on medium-high heat. Stir in the all-purpose flour and mix well, let it cook for 1 to 2 minutes.
Pour in the chicken stock and the chicken pieces. Let it come to a boil and then turn down the heat, pour in the cream let it simmer a few minutes more until you've reached the desired thickness.
Meanwhile use a pairing knife to cut the small round top off the vol au vents. heat the vol au vents in the oven for a few minutes. Bring the ragout to taste using pepper and salt. Garnish with sliced scallions. Enjoy your meal!
