Culinary Indulgence: Chicken and Bread Bake

A few days ago I shared pictures of a ‘Chicken and Bread Bake’ that my mother made, and was asked to share the recipe. The recipe credit actually goes to a friend of my mother’s from whom my mother learned the recipe herself a few years ago. I hope you guys try it and enjoy it as much as we do!

Method

  • Prepare Chicken: In a pressure cooker, throw in the boneless chicken, ginger paste, garlic paste, some salt, and one teaspoon of black pepper powder. Pressure cook for about 10-15 minutes with no more than half a cup of water. If there is still some water left once you open the cooker, let it evaporate. Make sure all the pieces disintegrate and shred. Let cool a little so it’s easier to handle.
  • To the chicken add diced capsicum, peas and carrots [we stick to Capsicum only since we aren’t fans of too many vegetables in our stuff]
  • In an oven-safe dish lay out white bread as a nice and tightly packed base.
  • Generously pour and spread tomato ketchup over the bread.
  • Create a layer of the chicken mixed with vegetables.
  • Sprinkle onions according to your preference and liking for them.
  • Generously sprinkle the grated cheddar and mozzarella over all this.
  • Put into a pre-heated oven (350F is ideal), and bake for about 10 minutes or until the cheese melts.
  • Pull out of the oven, let cool slightly so the cheese sets.

Enjoy, and let me know if you try this!
