Bread Bowl Chicken

From Dorothy McNett's Recipe Book at

2 tablespoons olive oil
2-3 cloves garlic, minced
1/2 teaspoon smoked paprika
1/2 teaspoon salt
3-4 chicken breasts, skinned, boned, and cut into chunks
2 tablespoons flour
5-6 small potatoes
1-2 carrots
handful of fresh pea pods, trimmed and cut
dressing or barbecue sauce

1 large round loaf of French bread

Toss the chicken chunks with the oil, paprika, garlic, salt, and flour. Place in glass or ceramic bowl or dish. Cover. Microwave at 70% power for 2-3 minutes. Stir. Microwave another 2-3 minutes, or until the chicken is done. Set aside. Wash and trim the potatoes and carrots. Microwave on high, covered, for 4 min. Stir. Microwave another 3-4 minutes, or until vegetables are tender. Combine with the chicken, toss in the pea pods, and stir in a little dressing or barbecue sauce of your desire.

Slice off top of loaf and remove spongy center. Place the chicken mixture in the cavity. Sprinkle with parsley. Replace top of bread and wrap it in a tea towel. Carry to your picnic or potluck. You can eat the chicken and the bowl, using the tea towel for a place mat or for wiping up spills. Make sure you keep it cool and eat it upon arrival. Do not let it stand around!
