A colleague of mine made this savory chicken bread and brought it to work. I enjoyed it so much that I asked for the recipe!
As in the past, I utilized store bought rotisserie chicken in place of boiled chicken meat. I like to do this for benefit and for the included flavor. I like the versatility of this dish as you can fill it with anything you desire. Ham and cheese would most likely be a great filling! My family loved this meal, specifically right out of the oven!
