Method

  1. Dice the chicken into approximately 1 cm pieces.
  2. Let it rest in the fridge for 6 hours, soaked in milk, to make it tender.

You can sprinkle some sesame seeds on the rolls before baking them.

Dish history

This is an easy recipe for a very tasty meaty snack! The chicken breast, marinated in milk, herbs and spices, is baked in a pastry crust and makes a very versatile dish: you can serve it as an appetiser at the beginning of a meal, you can dice it up to serve it as a snack for an aperitif, or you can serve bigger portions, surrounded by salads and veggies, to create an all-in-one course. What are you waiting for? Try it out!
