  • Form remaining dough into a ball and roll out to a 12 x 17-inch rectangle. Place chicken, breast side down, in the middle of the dough.
  • Arrange vegetables around chicken.
  • Wrap sides and ends of dough over chicken.
  • Turn right side up and place on a baking sheet. Brush surface with beaten egg.

  • Brush with egg.
  • Bake in pre- heated 425 degrees oven for 30 minutes, until golden brown.
  • To serve, let everyone tear off the bread, then cut up the chicken.
  • PIZZA DOUGH: Dissolve yeast, sugar and salt in warm water.
