Total Time 1 hour 15 minutes
Servings 3 dozen


  • 1/2 cup water
  • 1/4 cup real salted butter I like Kerrigold butter from grass fed cows.
  • 1/2 cup all purpose or gluten free flour
  • 2 eggs
  • 1/4 cup grated swiss cheese

Chicken Filling

  • 2 cups finely chopped rotisserie chicken any cooked chicken is good
  • 1/2 cup mayonnaise
  • 1 tbsp dry white wine
  • 3 tbsp chopped green onion
  • 1 chopped red pepper
  • salt and pepper to taste


  1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees. In a saucepan, heat the water and butter until boiling. Reduce heat to low and stir in the flour until a smooth ball forms. Remove from heat and add stir in eggs, one at a time, until smooth and shiny. Mix in swiss cheese.

  2. Lightly grease a baking sheet and drop rounded teaspoons of dough two inches apart. The teaspoons will look small but they will puff up bigger.

  3. Bake for 25 to 30 minutes or until golden brown. While baking, prepare the chicken filling.

  4. Let cool for about 30 minutes and then cut off the upper third or each puff. Take out some of the soft dough so that there is room for the chicken filling. Fill with chicken salad mix and replace the cut off pieces to top.
