Chicken Stuffed Focaccia

So you had a roast chicken the night before and are looking to use the leftovers in a creative way? Never happened to you? Can I live in your life so I don't have to make creative meals from leftovers? Well if you do need to use up leftovers try this.

Chicken Stuffed Focaccia

1 tsp dry active yeast
3/4 cup water
1 Tbsp sugar
2 1/2 cups bread flour
1/2 tsp salt

Combine to a dough and let rise.

While dough is rising, combine filling:

1 1/2 cups shredded cheese (whatever you have on hand. I like cheddar, provolone, or swiss)
2 cups cooked chopped chicken
10 oz chopped broccoli or spinach
1/4 cup parmesan cheese grated
1/4 cup finely chopped onion
1 clove garlic minced
1/4 tsp salt

After dough has risen, divide into 2 equal portions. On lightly floured surface roll out 1 portion of dough into a circle. Place on a greased pizza pan or baking sheet. Spread filling in the center, leaving room (about an inch) around the edges. Take second dough ball and a form into a circle and place on top of filling. Moisten and pinch edges of the dough to each other. Dimple the top and brush on olive oil generously. Sprinkle with sesame or poppy seeds. Bake at 375 for 40 minutes. Serve warm or chilled.
