Chicken Salad Puffs


  • 1/2 cup water
  • 1/4 cup butter, cubed
  • Dash salt
  • 1/2 cup all-purpose flour
  • 2 large eggs
  • 2 cups diced cooked chicken
  • 3/4 cup chopped celery
  • 1 can (2-1/4 ounces) sliced ripe olives, drained
  • 1/3 cup mayonnaise
  • 1 tablespoon lemon juice
  • 1 teaspoon grated onion
  • 1/4 teaspoon Worcestershire sauce
  • 1/8 teaspoon pepper
  • Salt to taste


  • 1. In a large saucepan, bring water, butter and salt to a boil. Add flour all at once and stir until a smooth ball forms. Remove from the heat; let stand for 5 minutes. Add eggs, one at a time, beating well after each addition. Continue beating until mixture is smooth and shiny.
  • 2. Drop by six rounded tablespoonfuls 3 in. apart onto a greased baking sheet. Bake at 400° for 30-35 minutes or until golden brown.
  • 3. Remove to a wire rack. Immediately split puffs open; remove tops and set aside. Discard soft dough from inside. Cool puffs.
  • 4. For filling, in a large bowl, combine the chicken, celery and olives. In a small bowl, combine the remaining ingredients; stir into chicken mixture. Fill puffs just before serving.

    This rating is for the chicken salad only - I made the salad and put it on some toast for a quick lunch. I thought it had a nice taste, but definitely needed some tomatoes or lettuce. I also found myself putting some extra mayo and a little Dijon mustard on the toast to keep it from getting too dry. Overall, I'd make this again, but with some minor tweaks.

    I originally found this recipe in my first copy of Taste of Home magazine that I received in 1994. I have been using it ever since. When my children were small, I had to speed up meal prep, so I did substitute croissants for the puffs, but the puffs are delicious. I have always made 4X the recipe because they always disappeared so fast!

    Love to make these chicken salad puffs, they are always a big hit and I love the taste of the eggy puff.
