I didn't actually use the chicken salad recipe, just the idea for chicken salad puffs, as well as the puff recipe (I filled it with chicken salad from my own recipe.) However, I thought I'd post a review based on what really helped make this dish successful. I read the reviews here and saw that many people's puffs had flattened out, so I looked up cream puff recipes to see what they did. The recipe here http://allrecipes.com/Recipe/Cream-Puffs/Detail.aspx is basically the same recipe as these puffs, and has a great review, second one down on the main page, that gives some essential tips for keeping your puffs from collapsing. After poking holes in my puffs with a toothpick near the end of baking time, I only had one or two that collapsed. Cutting off the top, there was nothing to hollow out, it was already a hollow shell PERFECT for spooning chicken salad into. These were a great success at my Easter party and I will definitely use the puff idea for chicken salad in the future!
