  1. I boil the chicken and then shred it. Boil till the chicken is nice and soft, 20 minutes or more.

    The rest of the puff pastry can be baked by it self with a egg-wash. This will give you nice puff biscuits. Add cumin to the pastry if you like.

  2. I boil the chicken and then shred it most of the time. However, if I have leftover roast chicken (Costco) I use that and that is cooked. Either way it is the sauce and I think the green pepper punch that makes these chicken puffs yummy for me. Experiment and add your favorites. 🙂

  3. Ooo Rita, I was wondering what to do with the rest of my puff pastry – these look and sound amazing! Can I just ask about how you cook the chicken? Did you boil it or poach it and for how long? Thank you! and thanks for sharing at Fiesta Friday.

Hearing from you makes my day! Please comment below :-)
