Ingredients: Before we dive into the baking process, let’s gather our ingredients. You’ll need:

For the Sourdough Bread:

  • 1 cup active sourdough starter
  • 1 1/2 cups warm water
  • 4 cups bread flour
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons salt

For the Chicken Filling:

  • 2 cups cooked chicken, shredded
  • 1/2 cup diced onions
  • 1/2 cup diced bell peppers (red and green)
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1 teaspoon dried oregano
  • 1 teaspoon dried thyme
  • Salt and pepper to taste
  • Olive oil for sautéing


1. Preheat Your Oven:

  • Preheat your oven to 375°F (190°C) and place your sourdough bread-making pan inside to heat up.

2. Prepare the Sourdough Dough:

  • In a large mixing bowl, combine your active sourdough starter and warm water.
  • Gradually add in the bread flour and salt, mixing until you have a sticky dough.
  • Cover the bowl and let the dough rise for 4-6 hours or until it has doubled in size.

3. Prepare the Chicken Filling:

  • While your dough is rising, heat a pan over medium heat and sauté the diced onions, bell peppers, and minced garlic in olive oil until they become translucent.
  • Add the shredded chicken, dried oregano, dried thyme, salt, and pepper. Stir well and cook until everything is heated through. Set aside.

4. Shape the Bread:

  • Once your sourdough dough has risen, turn it out onto a floured surface and gently knead it for a few minutes.
  • Roll out the dough into a rectangular shape.

5. Assemble the Chicken Bread:

  • Spread the chicken filling evenly over the rolled-out dough.
  • Roll the dough tightly from one end to the other, creating a log.

6. Bake:

  • Carefully remove the heated sourdough bread-making pan from the oven and grease it with a little oil.
  • Place your rolled chicken bread log into the pan.
  • Bake for 30-35 minutes, or until the bread is golden brown and sounds hollow when tapped.

7. Enjoy!

  • Allow the Sourdough Chicken Bread to cool slightly before slicing.
  • Serve warm and savor the delightful blend of tangy sourdough and savory chicken.
