This recipe is posted in response to a request. I have not made it, but have tasted bobbat many times. This recipe is from "Mennonite Foods and Folkways from South Russia". The recipe calls for sausage, but I think you should be able to use chicken pieces as well.
- 2 tablespoons active dry yeast
- 1⁄2 cup lukewarm water
- 2 teaspoons sugar
- 5 eggs, well beaten
- 3⁄4 cup milk
- 1 teaspoon salt
- 3 1⁄2-4 1⁄2 cups flour
- 1 1⁄2-2 lbs farmer sausage or 1 1⁄2-2 lbs chicken pieces
