These are Pakistani bakery-style Chicken Patties with a twist. Puff pastry is filled with creamy chicken, sprinkled with sesame seeds, and baked to golden perfection. Flaky, addictive, and delicious they are also the perfect Ramadan snack or party appetizer.

Six chicken patties on a round try with a dip in the center

Ingredients  1x2x3x

  • 200 g boneless chicken boiled & shredded
  • ½ onion diced
  • 2 tablespoon butter
  • 2 tablespoon all-purpose flour
  • ¾-1 cup milk
  • ¾ teaspoon salt
  • ¾ teaspoon crushed black pepper
  • ¾ teaspoon red chili flakes
  • ½ teaspoon white pepper

  • Thaw puff pastry sheets and with a sharp knife cut into 6x6cm squares. Blunt knife presses the egdes and results in uneven rising of the puff pastry.
  • On your baking tray, take one square of puff pastry, brush with egg wash, take 2nd square of puff pastry, brush with egg wash, add around 1-2 tablespoon of the the chicken filling. Then finally add the 3rd layer of puff pastry.
  • With a fork, seal the four sides. Then give a final coating of egg wash.
  • Sprinkle sesame seeds. You can use a mixture of black and white. Or whichever ones you prefer.
  • Repeat the same steps for the rest of the chicken puffs/patties. Arrange them on the baking tray in a single layer and with good spacing between them.
  • Refrigerate for 15 mins and meanwhile preheat the oven at 200C.
  • Bake for 15-20 mins until puffed up and golden. You can open the oven door once to rotate the chicken patties to get an even colour.
  • Serve hot and enjoy
