Chicken in Bread Dough

The chicken comes out fragrant and soft, the dough is well penetrated by the juice in which the chicken was baked and together they make a very successful combination.

It is prepared quickly, only if you have the dough made a little earlier, about 1-2 hours before. I put boneless chicken legs here, but it also goes with bone-in chicken, any part of your favorite chicken.

I made it in a 28 cm diameter tray, you can make it in any other shape you have.

White onion

250 ml

During this time we go further - grease a baking tray with a little oil, round or square - it is important to be with the edges a little higher and not to be removed, so that the juice does not flow from the tray into the oven.

Cut the onion into juliennes and sprinkle in the pan, put a little salt and pepper on it.
