Chicken stuffed casserole bread

I love breads a lot and escpecially stuffed one. Our #Breadbakers group has challeged us to make a stuffed bread hosted by jenni. I was planning to make a sandwich bread which I make occasionally at home. when I filled the bread tin  found some dough left behind. An idea flashed in my mind,why don't I try a casserole bread? Smiley

 This will resemble a pie or quinche but it is made of a bread dough. Sooo yummy and  delicious bread loved by my kids a lot.......!!!!!!!!!!!  

 Recipe source: googled

Prep time- 2 hrs  

Cook time-50 mins  

Chicken stuffed casserole bread



Maida/All purpose flour-  21/2 - 3 cups  

Yeast- 1 tsp 

Warm milk- 1/2 cup 

 salt- 1 tsp 

Sugar- 1  tbsp 

 Water- 1/2 cup  

Butter- 1 tbsp 


Heat milk to luke warm and add a pinch of sugar and salt sprinkle yeast over them and set aside undisturbed for 10 mins or till its frothy.

In a paddle attached standmixer add the yeast mixture and butter mix well. add in water , remaining sugar and salt mix well. Now gradually add in the flour and knead the dough with medium speed. After adding the flour increase the speed and knead well till the dough is elastic and pliable. Place the dough in a greased bowl and rest them in a warm place for 45 mins to 1 hr till it doubles..........

Chicken-paneer Stuffing:

I made the Indian style chicken for stuffing to enhance the taste and a variation of International bread with Chettinad chicken.


Chicken-1 cup,boneless cubed  



  Ginger-garlic paste-1/2 tsp 

 Chettinad masala- 1 tbsp  

 mustard seeds- 1/2 tsp

  curry leaves- 1 strip 

 Dry red chillies- 2, broken  

  paneer(cottagecheese)-2 pieces,crumbled

 Oil- 1 tbsp  


In a pan heat oil and add mustard seeds to splutter add in ginger-garlic paste saute till its aroma enhances. Add dry red chillies onion saute well add in chicken pieces saute till chicken is half done. Add in tomatoes and saute till its cooked well. Now add water and salt cook till its half done. Add in chettinad masala powder and cook for some more time till chicken cooks well and water dries completely. Add paneer(cottagecheese) crumbled into the chicken mixture and mix well and cool them completely.

Casserole bread:

Slightly knead the risen dough in a floured surface and seperate them into 2 parts. Grease a casserole with butter and fill the dish with half part of the dough.Spread them to close the surface with a cavity in center. Now fill in the cooled mixture and close them completely with another part of the dough. 

Preheat the oven in 200° c 

Coat the top with egg wash and bake them for 25-30 mins. Serve them hot................

Chettinad masala

cinnamon-1 sticks 

 cardamom-2 pieces

 cloves-2 pieces

 cumin seeds-1/2 tsp 

 pepper corns- 2

 fennel seeds-1/2 tsp  

coriender seeds- 1 tbsp

Dry roast them and grind to coarse powder.
