“These Hawaiian-inspired puffs are stuffed with a curry chicken mixture. They're always a hit at potlucks and parties, and I'm constantly being asked for the recipe. 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.”

Original recipe yields 50 mini puffs



  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.
  4. Bake in the preheated oven 10 to 15 minutes, or until golden brown.

Made this recipe for a family gathering - they were a hit!! In fact, they ignored the other appetizers. I added a little crushed pineapple which made them a moister, also tried using phyllo "wraps" which worked niecely.



I made these for a Hawaiian Potluck that our church had. Although I got a few compliments on them, I didn't care for them. I thought they were too dry.



We took this to a Luau and it was a hit! Very easy and good.
