It's so flexible -- try using different types of meats and vegetables. You may need to cook the puffs in several batches, as this make a lot."

  1. In a medium bowl, mix together chicken, green onions, water chestnuts, oyster sauce, sesame seeds, curry powder, salt and pepper.
  2. Preheat oven to 400 degrees F (200 degrees C). Lightly grease a large baking sheet.
  3. Leaving about 2 inches between each biscuit, flatten biscuit dough onto the baking sheet. Place approximately 1 teaspoon of the chicken mixture onto each biscuit, then pinch the dough around the mixture to form an encasing ball.
