As I promised yesterday that I would post the homemade chicken bread after giving the recipe for the chicken filling, so here I am. The very delicious and very simple chicken bread roll recipe. I simply love the way it looks, braided and stuffed chicken bread. Even though I have been making the chicken bread roll for some time, but there is always a sense of satisfaction to see the golden brown braided and stuffed chicken bread come out perfectly.
The Chicken Bread Roll is such an amazing recipe that every time I make it, it never goes wrong. I got this recipe from Fauzia’s Kitchen first. Ever since I have been following the same with wonderful results. I use this recipe for the bread and use a variety of fillings including chicken, keema or just plain veggies. Hopefully I’ll share with you all the recipes in coming future, in sha ALLAH.
You can just make this homemade chicken bread roll from any leftover chicken too, like the tandoori chicken, chicken tikka, chicken malai tikka, grilled chicken or even chicken 65 recipe. This is an amazing way to use up your leftover dishes including any mutton or veggie recipes. Though I am paranoid of making bread in the kitchen, this is one recipe that I love to make again and again without any difficulty. I simply love the sheer ease of it. Nothing like seeing the dough rise and watching it become soft, fluffy and brown. I fondly keep looking through the oven mirror like a small kid every time I bake anything. Baking and getting it right is something which I really cherish and enjoy to the core.
I have shared the recipe for the shredded chicken masala for the filling here. But like I mentioned before, you can always use the filling your choice for this chicken bread roll. I have seen other recipes which call for using readymade bread and stuffing it with the filling but I love it when we make the recipe right from scratch. And the best part is, it doesn’t require extra kneading too unlike the pizza base where I have to knead and knead and knead some more to get the perfect pizza base.
I, truly, hope that you try this chicken bread roll recipe and enjoy it. All you have to do is allow the yeast to activate and add this to the rest of the ingredients. We then knead it into a soft dough and allow it to rest for an hour covered with a damp cloth. The dough will rise and is ready to make the bread.
After the dough is ready, roll it into a rectangular shape and place the chicken filling in the middle. Make the cuts in slanting lines on both sides.
After making the cuts, fold the layers alternatively on top of each other till the end. Either leave the last two layers or fold it up like I have done. And bake it for 20-25 minutes before relishing this amazing recipe.
Serve it with any curry of your choice for the perfect meal.
