Its seriously the easiest thing to prepare. Take a loaf of bread, cut it up into a grid pattern, pour in melted garlic butter, chicken, olives…just anything you please into all of the crevices,and cover it with foil and bake. Take it out of the oven and stuff cheese on all the cracks and pop it back into the oven uncovered. Voila! Tasty, cheesy awesomeness ready within minutes.

I am soo absolutely looking forward to baking and consuming many many more loaves of this yummy cheesy bread.

1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Spray a sheet of heavy-duty foil with non-stick cooking spray and set aside.
2. Cut the bread lengthwise and widthwise, but DO NOT cut through the bottom crust. Make sure your knife is really sharp. Place cut loaf on the foil-lined baking sheet.
3. Gently separate the bread with your fingers, then spoon the sweet chilly sauce inside all the cuts. Melt the butter and mix in the garlic paste. Pour this into the cuts making sure it is evenly distributed among the whole loaf. Do not skimp on the butter.
4. Insert the chicken masala, then jalapeños, olives. Try stuffing it as deep as possible and between all the cuts. Pour a little peri peri sauce all over. This is optional.

5. Wrap the loaf up in the foil and place on a baking stone or directly on the oven rack and bake for 10 minutes.
6. Remove from the oven.
7. Open the foil and sprinkle the shredded cheese on top of the bread. There will be a lot of cheese, so try to push down as much as you can in between all of the crevices in the bread. Leave the foil open and return it to the oven. Bake until the cheese is completely melted, bubbling and starting to brown on top, about 15 minutes. Let stand for 5 minutes before serving, then sprinkle with parsley (if desired) and dig in!

Notes:

✔️ You can fill the bread with whatever filling you desire. You can add just anything that you would like to add in a pizza. Pizza sauce can also be added.
✔️ Adding white sauce to the bottom layer of the bread would be a good idea, as you will get a nice and moist bread. The recipe for white sauce is here.
✔️ The chicken can be replaced with mushrooms, beef, tuna etc. You can fill the bread with whatever ingredients you have in your pantry.
✔️ Serve it immediately.
✔️ The recipe for chicken masala is here and here.

  1. Oh my goodness, I need this on my dinner table RIGHT NOW! It’s so simple yet crowd-pleasing, I bet even my entire picky family would enjoy this. I’m busting out the soy shreds and veganizing this baby ASAP!

  2. There is something so warm and comforting – hearty and scrumptious – and exotic about this recipe. I will have to see if I can purchase Nando’s peri peri sauce in New Mexico. The ingredients in this recipe are so creative – as well as the fun way of slicing and stuffing the bread. Have a great weekend, Sadia! Best, Shanna
