Chicken Cheddar Cheese and Broccoli Pockets



Why would you buy processed meals when they could be prepared at home at a fraction of the cost? At least you know exactly what’s in your food not to mention it's healthier and tastier. 

Homemade hot pockets, fresh from the oven. Now, that sounds like a plan!!



Ingredients:

       4 cups bread dough (see my recipe for bread dough here)
       2 large chicken breasts
       2 cups steamed broccoli
       1 - 2 oz cream cheese
       ¼ - ½   cup alfredo sauce
       1 - 2 cups cheddar cheese
       Seasonings of your choice
       ½ cup olive oil





Instructions:

  1. Season and bake chicken breasts in a 350 degree oven until no longer pink in center. Dice chicken and set aside.
  2. Roll out a handful of bread dough into a 1/4 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 1/2 cup diced chicken, 1/4 cup steamed chopped broccoli, and 1/4 - 1/3 cup cheddar cheese.
  3. 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.
  4. 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.
  5. Bake at 400 degrees until golden brown, about 20-25 minutes. Brush with oil mixture again after baking if desired.
