Kitchen Equipment Needed

Before you get started, make sure you have the following kitchen equipment on hand:

  • Mixing bowls
  • Whisk
  • Baking sheet
  • Baking paper
  • Sharp knife
  • Cutting board
  • Measuring spoons
  • Oven


For the dough:

  • 200 ml warm water
  • 200 ml warm milk
  • 1 tablespoon caster sugar
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 600 g plain flour
  • 1 tbsp dried yeast
  • 1 tbsp olive oil

For the filling:

  • 500 g chicken breast
  • 2 onions
  • 2 tomatoes
  • 1 green pepper
  • 1 caper
  • 5-6 sprigs of parsley
  • 5 spring onions
  • 2 tbsp olive oil
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 1 tsp black peppercorns, red pepper, and thyme
  • 200 g grated cheddar cheese

Recipe Directions:

  1. Prepare the Dough: In a bowl, combine warm water, warm milk, sugar, and dried yeast. Mix well, then add flour and salt. Knead the dough until smooth, then add olive oil and continue kneading. Let the dough rise for 30 minutes.
  2. Prepare the Filling: While the dough is rising, wash, clean, and chop all vegetables and chicken into small pieces. Mix everything together in a bowl and season with salt and pepper.
  3. Assemble and Bake: Divide the dough into several portions and flatten into pancakes. Place them on a baking sheet lined with baking paper. Spread the filling on each pancake and bake in a preheated oven at 200°C for about 20 minutes.
  4. Add Cheese and Bake: After 20 minutes, sprinkle grated cheddar cheese over the pancakes and return them to the oven. Bake for another 10 minutes or until the cheese is melted and golden brown.

Recipe Tips and Variations

  • Shortcut: Short on time? Use store-bought pizza dough instead of making your own.
  • Vegetarian Option: Skip the chicken and add extra veggies like mushrooms, zucchini, or eggplant for a delicious vegetarian version.
  • Spice it Up: Feel free to adjust the spices to suit your taste. Add more red pepper flakes for a spicy kick or omit them entirely for a milder flavor.
  • Make it Ahead: Prepare the filling ahead of time and store it in the fridge until ready to assemble and bake. This is perfect for meal prep or entertaining.


Q: Can I freeze the leftovers? A: Yes, you can freeze the baked chicken pancakes for up to 3 months. Simply wrap them tightly in foil or plastic wrap and place them in an airtight container before freezing.

Q: What can I serve with this dish? A: This oven-baked chicken recipe pairs well with a simple green salad, roasted vegetables, or garlic bread. For drinks, try serving it with a crisp white wine or a refreshing lemonade.
