The veloute itself is not traditionally served as-is, but rather, it's the starting point for other sauces. Chicken veloute, for example, is the basis for the traditional Supreme sauce, as well as the classic Mushroom sauce, the Aurora sauce and many others.
Still, there's no reason you couldn't simply season a chicken veloute with salt and pepper and serve it much as you would a basic gravy — which, after all, is nothing but a veloute sauce made with the pan drippings from a roasted bird.
