Chicken Salad Sandwich Puffs

You don't need to make or use the puff pastry for these, Hawaiian Rolls are just as yummy and definitely easier, but these have a really cute presentation as a bite-sized finger food for guests.

The puff pastry recipe I posted is actually a double batch to make sure there is enough for all the chicken salad and plenty on the platter, they always go quite quickly.

Cook:

Ingredients

PUFFS

2 c
water
1 c
butter
1/2 tsp
salt
8
eggs
3 c
well-diced chicken
3-4 Tbsp
milk
2
egg yolks

CHICKEN SALAD

1 stalk(s)
celery, very finely diced
1 c
seedless grapes, half or quartered (i prefer the red or sweeter grapes)
1/2 c
chopped walnuts
1/2 c
onion, minced
1 tsp
worcestershire sauce
1/2 c
mayonnaise

FIXINGS

handful fresh spinach leaves
sliced roma tomato
salt and pepper to taste

Directions Step-By-Step

1
First prepare the pastry dough by bringing the 2 cups of water, butter and salt to a boil. Add flour and stir until the dough pulls from the side of the pan and forms a smooth ball. Add eggs, one at a time beating well after each egg addition until the mixture is smooth and shiny.

Using an ice cream scoop drop onto a greased or parchment covered baking sheet. Beat milk and egg yolk and lightly brush over the puffs.

Bake at 400 degrees for 30-35 minutes or until golden brown. Move to wire racks and cut a slit in each as soon as possible. (Not sure why, but those were my directions, have not deviated)
2
While the pastry puffs cook, prepare the chicken salad. Combine all the ingredients in a mixing bowl, stirring well, and place in the refrigerator to chill.
3
When the puffs are cooled, cut in half and on bottom place 1-2 spinach leaf and a slice of Roma tomato. Spoon in chicken salad on top half, sprinkle salt and pepper, if desired, and gently place halves together on a plate/platter.
