MIRACLE DOUGH CHICKEN CORDON BLEU RING





MIRACLE DOUGH CHICKEN CORDON BLEU RING

This was wonderful – really reminded me of a Chicken bake from Costco, so I’m going to work on that idea. Actually just reading this now - I did work on that idea and here is that super recipe (click)!  The next day I sliced it and heated it in a nonstick frying pan briefly on both sides…phew!  So very good!  Click on the photos to see bigger images.

2 cups diced, cooked chicken (500 mL)
1 cup grated Swiss cheese (250 mL)
1/cup diced ham (125 mL)
1/cup mayonnaise (125 mL)
2 tbsp butter, melted (30 mL)
1 tsp crushed garlic (5 mL)
  (the bottled kind)
  (A little merry go round - this will take you to pics to show you how it looks while
  being made (fun and easy) and in the recipe at this link find the LINK to the Miracle Dough (also
  a grain-free version available)

Preheat the oven to 375°F (190°C). 

In medium bowl, place chicken, Swiss cheese, ham, mayonnaise, butter and garlic.  Combine well.  Set aside.

Prepare Miracle Dough, page___.  Place half dough on parchment paper and cover with plastic.  Roll out into a 10-inch (25 cm) circle.    Repeat with the remaining dough.  Cut each circle in half and divide each of those halves into 6 triangles.  Place the triangles in a big circle on a large, greased pizza pan, with the pointed edges of the triangular pieces of dough facing the outside circumference of the pizza pan and the wider parts overlapping, leaving an open circle in the center.  Place the chicken and veggie filling on the overlapping dough close to the open vacant circle in the center. Fold the pieces over the filling, tucking them in a bit, but don’t worry too much as it will keep its shape.

Bake 20 minutes.  Loosen underneath the ring with a metal spatula and place back in the oven on top rack (for browning the top of the ring), and position the part that is least brown towards the back of the oven.  Bake another 7 to 10 minutes, or until golden in color (not dark).

MIRACLE DOUGH TIPS: - Please note:USE BOB'S RED MILL COCONUT FLOUR FOR ALL MY RECIPES AND ESPECIALLY FOR THIS MIRACLE DOUGH - COCONUT FLOURS DIFFER GREATLY IN THEIR ABILITY TO ABSORB MOISTURE!  There are several variations of this kind of dough on the internet, but mine is different to all the others out there.  I am getting very adept with this dough.  Use a fork to make it come together.  At first it looks impossible (might even have strings of cheese in it), but keep mixing and then turn out on a cutting board.  Knead for a couple of minutes, adding a bit of coconut flour as needed to make a lovely elastic dough. The more coconut flour one can add (usually about 1 tbsp or a bit more), the more bread-like the dough becomes (more substantial).  Since coconut flour is mostly fiber, you're not really adding much in the way of carbs, spread over several servings.  I put the dough ball on parchment paper and cover the dough with plastic wrap and using a  rolling pin (sometimes I use my special small one for pie dough), roll it out with ease.  If at any time the dough becomes resistant to rolling, nuke it approximately 10  to 20 seconds and away you go again!

Here is how it looks while mixing with a fork - looks impossible, right?  Don't worry, keep mixing!



Here is a pic of the dough ball - lovely, soft and malleable!!


Mozzarella cheeses that I have successfully used with the Miracle Dough and The Sweet Miracle Pastry Dough as well.  I get mine from Price Smart in Central (technically South America) America, which is the same as Costco in the United States.

I tried this one a couple of times

I usually grate my own cheese using my 20-year old Braun food processor, which has a ton of gadgets - this is the cheese I use most often - looks like it might be very similar to the one above, however, I think they sometimes add something to their grated cheese to help it last longer.  I could be wrong.  CLICK ON THE PHOTO TO SEE A BIGGER IMAGE.
