  • Mozzarella Cheese: 70g, shredded

Preparation Tips:

  • For a crispy bottom as seen in the video, bake the cheese-topped bread again in the oven. For a softer texture, melt the cheese in the microwave.
  • Substitute chicken with beef if preferred.
  • For a vegetarian version, replace meat with mushrooms or a mix of vegetables.


  1. Prepare the Bread Dough:
    • In a large mixing bowl, combine bread flour, sugar, salt, and instant dry yeast. Gradually mix in the warm milk and knead until a dough forms. Incorporate the room temperature butter and knead until the dough is smooth and elastic. Let it rise until doubled in size.
  2. Cook the Chicken Filling:
    • In a skillet, sauté the chopped onion, tomato, and minced garlic until soft. Add the diced chicken breast, soy sauce, chili powder, cooking wine, ketchup, and honey mustard. Cook until the chicken is fully cooked and the flavors are well blended. Set aside to cool.
  3. Prepare the Burger Sauce:
    • In a small bowl, mix together ketchup, honey mustard, mayonnaise, and chopped pickled cucumber. Set aside.
  4. Assemble the Bake:
    • Preheat your oven to the temperature specified for baking bread. Roll out the bread dough to fit the size of your square pan. Spread the chicken filling evenly over the dough, then drizzle the burger sauce on top. Sprinkle both mozzarella and cheddar cheese over everything.
  5. Bake:
    • Bake in the preheated oven until the bread is golden and the cheese has melted and is bubbly. For a crispier bottom, you may return the bake to the oven for a few additional minutes after the cheese has melted.
  6. Final Touch:
    • Brush the surface of the baked bread with melted unsalted butter for a glossy finish and extra flavor.
  7. Serve:
    • Allow the bread to cool slightly before cutting into squares. Serve warm and enjoy this deliciously unique savory bake.

This savory chicken bread bake combines the heartiness of a meal with the comfort of freshly baked bread, making it a perfect dish for any time of the day. Enjoy crafting this delightful recipe that’s sure to be a hit with family and friends!
