A copy cat of Pigs In A Blanket - a sausage wrapped in dough, then baked. It is served as a snack at parties / kitty party since they are one or two bites. They can be served with any dipping sauce. Mostly bacon or pork sausages are used for this.
Since I, have used chicken cocktails sausage, I have renamed them Chicken In A Blanket.When I made these and tasted them , the sausage was bland but the rolls soft and moist. I felt they required some spice, since the chicken cocktail sausages that are used is absolutely bland. So, sliced the rolls in the center poured a spoon full of spicy hot sauce and served, these were devoured in no time. I am going to make these again and with a variation.
Sending these to Bread Bakers event Host of the month Pavani at : Cook's Hideout - http://www.cookshideout.com/ - theme Think special! Think festive! Breads that you would bring a family feast or celebratory dinner! Thank you Pavani for hosting this event and making it special and festive.
So here goes my Chicken In A Blanket recipe.
3 Cups All Purpose Flour
1 Sachet Fleischmann's Rapid Rising Yeast
1 + 1 Egg
1 Teaspoon Sugar
1 Teaspoon Salt
1 Tablespoon Oil
2 Tablespoon Butter - I used salted butter
Luke Warm Water for kneading the dough as required
Chicken Cocktail Sausages as required
In a large bowl add flour, sugar, salt, oil, yeast and egg mix well. Add in the luke warm water and knead everything until the dough turns soft and smooth. Take it on to a work surface, add the butter a teaspoon at a time by stretching and folding the dough till all the butter is incorporated and the dough is smooth and shiny.
Place the dough in a greased bowl, wrap the bowl with a cling film and keep it to rise double its volume say about an hour and half, depending on the weather and temperature in your kitchen.
Beat the egg, add a teaspoon of water and a pinch of salt, mix it well. Keep aside - this is for sealing edges of the rolls and brushing the top.
When the dough rises , punch it down . Take it on to the work surface and divide the dough into 6 equal parts.
Roll each part into a chapatti of 1/4 inch thickness, trim the sides to make a square.
Cut it into broad strips.
Take each strip of dough place the sausage at one end and roll it ( see pic).
Brush the ends with egg wash.
Keep this in a greased baking tray - ends down to rise for a another 30 to 45 minutes.
Then brush it with egg wash and bake in a preheat oven at 200 degrees for 20 to 25 minutes - baking time depends on the size of the rolls. These got baked in 25 minutes.
When baked immediately brush them with butter or oil, cool them slice it in the center and pour some spicy hot sauce and enjoy these yummy Chicken In A Blanket.
