  3. Roll each dough piece into a 4-inch circle on a lightly floured surface. Spoon about 2 tablespoons chicken mixture into center of each dough circle. Gather edges of dough over filling; pinch to seal. Place the filled dough, seam sides down, on a baking sheet coated with cooking spray. Lightly coat filled dough with cooking spray. Cover and let rise 20 minutes.

We enjoyed these buns for dinner with a spinach salad with an asian vinagrette. The nine buns served four adults. Next time I might add shredded carrot, chopped red pepper and/or some ginger to add a bit more flavor to the filling. Thank you for posting. Made for PRMR.

This was wonderful. I made this with a different filling (duxelle, chopped chicken & gruyere) & it worked out perfectly. Thank you for posting.

Nice dish. I think this might even be easier with some crescent rolls instead of bread dough. I would have liked to see some veggies in here since the bread 'hides' them from picky eaters. Lots of room here to add that kind of thing in! Thanks for a tasty recipe!
