I first made these 10 years ago. I make these when we have leftover chicken. I typically will use the puff pastry so it has a flakier crust.

I made these as per recipe and they were delicious. I may try using different fillings and baking or frying. Thanks for the inspiration.

I made these for my family and the flavor was great! I used wonton wraps (b/c that's all my small town store had) and baked them. I think the wrapper would have been better fried, although that would up the fat content. I didn't use the pie crust because it seemed too thick to me and I wanted a thinner outer layer. I think I will make these again using the wonton wraps and frying them in oil. They will make great appetizers at that size!

I do use egg roll wrappers instead of the pie crust or puff pastry. It is much easier to roll, less mess and everyone likes them even more. I also bush them lightly with canola oil and bake each side until lightly brown and crispy. Fantastic! I made them for my boy's Open House and other family or work celebrations. I triple or quadruple the recipe every time and always get several request for this recipe.

Made these for the first time today. All four of us who ate them thought they were delicious! Using the puff pastry the recipe made 18 good size portions. And I had enough filling left over to make a small tart using pie pastry. Next time I will thaw more puff pastry and it will probably make an additional 9 portions. Absolutely DELICIOUS! Thanks so much for this recipe.

love, love love these! Sometimes I get lazy and just put everything in a double pie crust. Still divine but less work.
