  • 1/2 cup finely chopped celery
  • 1/4 cup finely chopped onion
  • 1/4 cup finely chopped carrot
  • 2 teaspoons butter
  • 1 tablespoon all-purpose flour
  • 1-1/2 teaspoons curry powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 cup chicken broth
  • 1-1/2 cups diced cooked chicken
  • 1/4 cup sour cream
  • 1/4 cup plain yogurt
  • 1 package (17.3 ounces) frozen puff pastry, thawed
  • 1 large egg yolk
  • 1 teaspoon water


  1. In a large skillet, saute the celery, onion and carrot in butter for 4-6 minutes or until tender. Stir in the flour, curry powder and salt until blended. Add broth. Bring to a boil; cook and stir for 1 minute or until thickened. Remove from the heat. Stir in the chicken, sour cream and yogurt.
  2. On a lightly floured surface, roll each pastry sheet into a 12-in. x 10-in. rectangle. With a floured 3-in. round cookie cutter, cut out 12 circles from each rectangle. Place 2 teaspoons chicken mixture on one side of each circle. Moisten edges with water; fold dough over filling. Press edges with a fork to seal.
  3. Place 1 in. apart on a greased baking sheet. In a small bowl, beat egg yolk and water; brush over pastry. Bake at 400° for 17-20 minutes or until golden brown. Serve warm.
