Bread pillow cases


  • 2 x 400g crustless bread (you may need more)
  • 500g boneless chicken (finely cubed)
  • 1 tsp salt (or to taste)
  • 1 tsp green chillies (or to taste)
  • 1 tsp black pepper
  • 1 tsp garlic
  • 1 1/2 cup mixed peppers (finely chopped)
  • 1 1/2 cup sweetcorn
  • 280g Philadelphia cheese
  • Grated cheddar cheese to preference


  • 1/4 cup plain flour
  • Water


  1. Recite Bismillah.
  2. Cook the chicken in salt, pepper, garlic & green chillies till it is half cooked on low heat. (About 7 mins)
  3. Then add the sweetcorn & mixed pepper.
  4. Cook till on high heat till water evaporates.
  5. Allow to cool completely.
  6. Meanwhile prepare the glue by mixing the flour with enough water to form a thick paste that is easy to spread. Set aside.
  7. Add the Philadelphia cheese & grated cheddar cheese to the chicken mixture & combine well.
  8. Remove the crusts of the slices of bread.
  9. Roll out the slices & cut them in half so that you have two rectangles.
  10. Apply glue around the edges of the bread.
  11. Place about a teaspoon of mixture in the centre.
  12. Fold in half & seal the edges by pressing them down firmly.
  13. Freeeze & fry as needed.

Tip 1: Do not throw away the crusts & thick slices of the loaf of breads. Turn them into bread crumbs by:

  1. Breaking them up on a baking tray
  2. Preheating oven to 150c.
  3. Drying them out in the oven for 30 mins.
  4. Then grinding them in a food processor!

Tip 2: When frying bread pillows from the freezer, allow to defrost completely before frying.

  1. Can these bread pockets be oven baked. I find the bread soaks up a lot of oil! Or am I doing something wrong?! Jzk.
