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.

  • Preheat oven to 400 degrees F (200 degrees C). Lightly grease a large baking sheet.

  • 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.

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

I used this recipe as a kind of base and made a few changes based on the comments people left in their reviews. Instead of canned chicken I used a couple of boneless skinless chicken breast that I fried up first and then chopped finely. I also added finely chopped ginger garlic red pepper pineapple and coriander which gave it more of a Thai feel. I also added some pineapple juice and soy sauce and just a dash of thai sweet chili sauce. I couldn't find biscuit dough so I used Pillsbury crescent rolls (cut in half) and formed them into little bundles by pinching together the dough at the top. I made them last night for a party and they were a huge hit! Read More

Did not care for this. REAL manapua is better. Yes it's more time consuming but it is sooooooo good. Read More

I made this for my company potluck last week and it was such an embarrassment. People didn't like it and I don't like it either. It is way too dry. I think it is the problem with the dough. It is salty and dry. I made about 50 and 25 left over. Some people took a bite and threw it away. It was awful. I am sorry that I have to say this but it is really not good. Read More

I took this to a Luau. This party included some wonderful cooks and their husbands. The host of the party kept telling his quests that they needed to taste the best appetizer at the party --mine! It was a hit and I will surely make this again. Read More

Made these for a holiday party and they were a huge hit. Since then I have had a few requests to bring them to pot lucks. Taks a little time but worth it. Read More
