Chicken Bread

I always had a craze to learn baked dishes and a few times I had tried a few recipes and always failed in one step or the other but always blamed my oven and kept cribbing that I dont have a right oven in place,   but in the same oven this is the first baking recipe which turned out absolutely perfect and fabulous. I learnt this also from a TV channel and is a unique recipe to impress your loved ones :) .  A must try recipe and vegetarians can  substitute veggies or anything they wish and amend the ingredients stuffing to their taste buds but never change the proportion of the dough as this is really a perfect dough for any kind of stuffing . 

Ingredients for Dough:

Maida or All purpose flour - 4 cups /16 OZ (1/2 Kg)
Milk Powder - 2 Tablespoon
Cooking Oil - 1/4 cup
Instant yeast - 1 tablespoon
Castor Sugar - 1 teaspoon
Salt- 1 teaspoon leveled
Egg -1
Lukewarm water

Dough Mixture Preparation:

Take a vessel add the flour and add all the ingredients as measured above, add yeast, milk powder, cooking oil, castor sugar, salt , egg and knead it well with lukewarm water to a chappati dough consistency and keep it in a greased vessel and brush some oil over the dough and keep it covered in a warm place for one hour till the dough becomes double.

Stuffing Chicken Mixture:

Ingredients for stuffing:

Chicken 1/2 KG boiled with salt and shredded ( or use boneless peices and boil with salt and shred)
Butter- 3 tablespoon
Onion- One big onion finely chopped
Maida or All purpose flour - 2 tablespoon
Salt- one tablespoon
Black pepper powder- 1 tablespoon
Green chillies- 4 nos chopped finely
Garam masala Powder -1/2 teaspoon

Tomato Sauce- 1 tablespoon
Coriander leaves- Finely chopped 2 tablespoons

Method to prepare stuffing:

  • Take a non stick pan or tawa , heat it and add 3 tablespoon butter and add the chopped onion and fry till it turns pink and then add 2 tablespoon maida and mix well for a minute and then add salt, pepper powder, green chillies , garam masala powder and mix well and add one cup milk, and mix well in low fire till it becomes thick and now add the boiled shredded chicken and mix well for 2 minutes and then add tomato sauce and coriander leaves and mix well and then remove from fire. The mixture should be thick and not watery.
Dough Stuffing:


One egg
one tablespoon til/sesame seeds

Kead the doubled dough well using hands for a minute and then take a big handful size of dough and roll the entire flour into oval shape with 1/4 inch thickness like the thin crust pizza and then make small cuts on the sides of the rolled dough till the end on both sides and keep the prepared mixture in between and start overlapping the cuts from both the sides as shown in the picture and once done , brush the bread with egg and sprinkle some til /sesame seeds on top of the bread and keep it aside for another half an hour to rise and then bake it 200 degree centigrade for 20 minutes till it browns on the top .

You can also make make small croissants using the same filling and bake in the same procedure.

You can also do your own kind of stuffing with vegetables or eggs or mince meat as per your choice but see that the stuffing stays thick.

It is a worth trying dish which suits for partys and dinners :)
