Braided bread with mushrooms and chicken

Very practical to take them in your lunch box, but they are very special also as starters.

Ingredients for the dough:

  • 900g all purpose flour
  • 80g fresh yeast
  • 2 teaspoons salt
  • 4 tablespoons olive oil

Ingredients for filling:
  • 500g mushrooms (diced)
  • 1 big boiled chicken breast (~250g, diced)
  • 3 red bell peppers (diced)
  • 2 eggs (beaten)+ another 1 or 2 for brushing
  • 1 hand of parsil (chopped)
  • 200g heavy cream
  • 400g of emmental cheese (grated)

  2.  Dice the mushrooms, peepers, chicken breast.
  3. Cut the parsley.
  4. Mix all the ingredients for the filling in a big ball.
  5. Split the dough in 12 pieces.
  6. Take one piece, and stretch it with a rolling pin in a rectangular form. Imagine that you'll need to divide this rectangle in 3 parts on the longer side. take a knife and fringe diagonally the 2 parts on the side. The part inside remains uncut.
  7. Put around 3 spoons of the filling in the middle part and braid the fringes from the 2 sides like an ear.
  8. Repeat the same steps for all 12 pieces of dough.
  9. Brush the top with beaten eggs to brown nicely when baked.
