Preheat oven to 400°F.

In a medium mixing bowl, combine flour, baking powder, onion salt, and curry powder. Cut butter into mixture with pastry blender or fork until texture resembles coarse meal. Add milk and stir with a fork until evenly moistened. Add chicken (or turkey), cheese and roasted red peppers (or green pepper), blending well. Grease a baking sheet, then dust lightly with flour.
