Ingredients

  • 1 cup water
  • 1/2 cup butter, cubed
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1 cup all-purpose flour
  • 4 large egg, room temperature
  • Filling:
  • 2 cups finely chopped cooked chicken
  • 1 can (8 ounces) crushed pineapple, drained

  • 1/4 teaspoon garlic salt

Directions

  • Preheat oven to 400°. 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 smooth and shiny.
  • Drop by rounded teaspoonfuls 2 in. apart onto a greased baking sheet. Bake until golden brown, 15-20 minutes. Remove to wire racks. Immediately cut a slit in each puff to allow steam to escape; cool.
