Chicken Cheese Braided Bread #BreadBakers

Made braided bread  for our party, made veg and  chicken filling  .  Today I, am posting the chicken cheese braided  bread, made 4 large ones, out of the prepared dough.
It so easy to bake it them home and  make it with your favorite filling.

These chicken and veg braided breads were a super hit at our party, so soft and  delicious.  You to try must them.

When our host  Gayathri created the event page -
 braiding of breads, was so happy since I, had to take something for our party, this braided bread was what went to the party.  

For Dough
600 Grams All Purpose Flour
2 Tablespoons Cornflour
A Sachet of Instant yeast
1 Tablespoon Sugar
1.1/2 Teaspoons Salt or according to your taste
1/4 Cup Oil
2 Tablespoons Butter
Warm water to knead
For Chicken Filling
300 Grams Boneless chicken - cut into small cubes
1 Tablespoon Oil
1 Large Onion  finely chopped
1 Medium Capsicum - finely chopped
1/2 Cup Frozen Mixed Vegetables
4 Green chilies - finely chopped
1 Teaspoon Ginger Garlic paste
Salt to taste
1 Teaspoon Red chilly powder 

1 Teaspoon Hot and spicy Sauce
Tablespoons Tomato ketchup 
1 Egg - beaten for brushing
Black Sesame seeds  for sprinkling
Grated Cheddar Cheese as required


For Dough

In a food processor add all the ingredients expect the water and  butter run the processor till all are  mix together .  Then keep of adding warm water till it starts coming together. 

Knead to medium soft dough, take it out of the processor and on to a greased work surface take the butter  and knead again till it is smooth and soft.  Keep this in a oiled bowl and brush a little oil over the dough. Keep it covered in a warm place to rise for 45 minutes.
In the meantime let's prepare the filling.
In a pan heat oil add the onions and fry till translucent, then add the ginger garlic paste and  chicken, saute till the chicken changes color, add the veggies, green chillies, spices,sauce, ketchup and saute for 2 - 3 minutes on medium flame, then cover the pan cook till done.  Open the pan and saute it again till dry ( all moisture evaporates).  Remove and cool down completely. Filling is ready.

Now to assemble it.

When the dough has risen , take on the work surface and deflate it, cut the dough into 4 equal parts.  Take one part and the rest keep covered.

Roll it into a oval disc. Spread a cheese in centre

on top of it the chicken filling and with a
 pizza cutter cut the sides in equal strips on other sides see pic.

Fold each side so they overlap each other (like a braid). Keep going, left to right and right to left till the end.

When reach the end, leave a tail at the bottom, just for the appearance.

Grease a tray and place your bread. 
Brush top with beaten egg, sprinkle sesame seeds and keep it aside for another half an hour to again rise.
Then bake in preheated oven on 200 degree C for 25 to 35 minutes till it browns on the top.
Right after taking out of oven, brush it with oil or butter let it rest  on the wire rack for 5 minutes then cover it in a cling film so that it does not dry out.  enjoy this yummy bread.
