You might know what inspired me to make this Chicken stuffed Bread Rolls. I am not a member of THAT supermarket and I don’t do shopping there. But I heard about the supermarket’s food called ‘Chicken Bake’ and it sounded very yummy, so I tried to make it. My version tastes great!


2 Large Rolls


Bread Dough
1/2 cup Warm Water OR Warm Milk
1 to 2 teaspoons Dry Yeast *1 teaspoon takes longer time to proof
1 & 3/4 cups Bread Flour *and extra for kneading
1 tablespoon Caster Sugar
1/2 teaspoon Salt
1 Egg *lightly whisked, save 1 tablespoonful for brushing
1 tablespoon Vegetable Oil
Mayonnaise OR Caesar Salad Dressing
Grated Tasty Cheese (Cheddar Cheese)

Chicken Filling
1 teaspoon Oil
1 to 2 slices (50g) Bacon *cut into small pieces
1 Celery Stalk *finely chopped
1/2 Onion *finely chopped
150 to 200g Chicken Breast Fillet *skinless, cut into 1cm pieces
Salt & Pepper

  1. Mix Warm Water (OR Warm Milk) and Yeast and stir, then set aside for 5 minutes.
  2. Combine Bread Flour, Sugar and Salt in a large bowl. Make a well in the centre and pour in the Yeast mixture, Egg (save 1 tablespoonful for brushing) and Oil. Mix well to form a soft dough.
  3. Knead for 2 to 3 minutes, gradually adding extra Flour as required, until smooth and elastic. Place the dough in a bowl, cover with a plate or plastic wrap, and set aside in a warm place for 1 hour or until doubled in size.
  4. To make Chicken Filling, heat a small amount of Oil in a frying pan over medium heat, cook Bacon, Onion and Celery. When Onion is transparent, add Chicken. When Chicken is cooked, season with Salt and Pepper.
  5. Divide the dough in half. On a lightly floured surface, roll out each portion into 5-6mm thin rectangle. Spread Mayonnaise OR Caesar Salad Dressing and 1/2 Chicken Filling, sprinkle with some Grated Tasty Cheese.

  6. Fold in the sides to that melted Cheese won’t come out, and roll up.
  7. Place the rolls on a baking tray, sealed side down. Set aside in a warm place for 45 minutes to 1 hour.
  8. Preheat oven to 180℃. Gently brush with saved Egg. You may wish to coat with Grated Tasty Cheese. *Note: I coated one roll with Egg and the other with Egg and Cheese.
  9. Bake for 20 minutes or until nicely browned and cooked through. *Note: If the top gets too dark, cover with a sheet of foil.
  10. *Note: The photo below is the same rolls but coated with grated Parmesan.
