Bagel bombs with cheese and chicken filling
For 9 bagel bombs. For 4 people.
Preparation time: 1 1/2 hour
- 480 grams / 3 3/4 cups of all purpose flour
- 200 grams / 7oz of chicken
- 3,2 dcl / 1 1/3 cup of warm milk
- 20 grams / 2 tablespoons of yeast
-1 1/2 teaspoon of salt
- 1 teaspoon of sugar
- 4 tablespoons of olive oil
- 3 fist-fulls of grated cheese
- 3 tablespoons of sesame seeds
- pinch of salt, ground pepper and red pepper powder - for marinade
In a small bowl, combine warm milk, sugar, and yeast. Let stand for 10 minutes or until yeast is bubbly.
Put the flour, yeast and oil in a big bowl.
Combine them together.
Then add salt. If you add the salt with yeast, the dough will not rise. So always add the salt, when yeast is already combined with flour.
If the dough is sticky, add additional flour, 1 tablespoon at a time, until the dough comes together in a solid ball. If the dough is too dry, add additional water, 1 tablespoon at a time. Scrape the dough onto a lightly floured surface and gently knead into a smooth, firm ball.
In the meantime slice the chicken in small pieces and add pinch of salt, ground pepper, 1 tablespoon of sesame seeds, 1 tablespoon of vegetable oil and red pepper powder. Combine and leave it to marinade for 15 minutes.
Then put it in a pan and cook in high heat for 5 minutes. Cool.
Divide the dough into 9 pieces and stretch each piece into small circle. Fill each dough with teaspoon of marinaded meat and grated cheese.
Close the edges and create a bomb. :)
Repeat and put each bomb in a greased baking pan.
Brush them with egg wash and sprinkle with remaining sesame seeds and cheese.
Let them rise for about 15-20 minutes and then put them in a prehetaed ove at 180 degrees Celsius / 350 Fahrenheit for about 30-35 minutes.
Bon Appetit :)
