Chicken Broccoli Cheddar Pocket
This is essentially a homemade hot pocket freshly baked from your own oven, and filled with chicken, broccoli, cheddar cheese, alfredo sauce and cream cheese.
- Approx. 4 cups bread dough (homemade or store bought)
- 2 large chicken breasts
- 2 c. steamed broccoli
- 1 - 2 oz. cream cheese
- ¼ - ½ c. alfredo sauce
- 1 - 2 c. cheddar cheese
- various seasonings
- ½ c. olive oil
- Season and bake chicken breasts in a 350 degree oven until no longer pink in center. Dice chicken and set aside.
- Roll out a handful of bread dough into a ¼ inch thick rectangle. Spread 1-2 tsp of softened cream cheese over dough. Add 1-2 Tbsp of alfredo sauce over the cream cheese. Top with ½ cup diced chicken, ¼ cup steamed chopped broccoli, and ¼ - ⅓ cup cheddar cheese.
- Fold up ends of dough over the filling mixture. Fold other ends up and over and seal seams shut using a bit of water if necessary.
- Using a pastry brush, lightly brush the tops of the pockets with a mixture of olive oil, garlic powder, parsley, and salt.
- Place seam side down on a prepped baking sheet, cut a small steam vent in the top, and let rise for about 30 minutes in a warm, draft-free place.
- Bake at 400 degrees until golden brown, about 20-25 minutes. Brush with oil mixture again after baking if desired.
I like to bake my chicken on wire racks on a cookie sheet. I find they cook more evenly, and keeping them out of their own liquid makes the breast more appealing overall. It won’t hurt to cook them directly on a baking sheet though.
