In a large bowl, add the Flour, Yeast, Vitamin C Powder, Salt, Sugar and mix together until combined. Create a hole in the middle and add the Milk, Eggs and melted butter.
Mix everything together until a soft and sticky dough is formed.
Transfer the dough to a well-floured work surface and knead. Sprinkle a little flour at a time on your work surface each time the dough becomes sticky until it becomes smooth and elastic. This should take about 10 minutes.
Coat a large bowl with some Oil or melted butter, place the dough in the bowl and coat the surface of the dough with a thin layer of Oil or butter. This will prevent the surface of the dough from forming a crust.
Cover it with a tight-fitting lid, a plastic wrap or damp cloth and place it in a warm place to rise for 1 hour or until it doubled in size. I usually place mine in the Oven with the oven light on.
Punch down the Dough, then, transfer it to a floured work surface and divide the Dough into 4
Roll out the dough to about a thickness of a quarter of an inch
Put some Chicken filling at the center of the dough from top to bottom. Leaving about 2-inch space at both the top and bottom.
Use a pizza cutter or a knife to make about 10 to 12 slits of about a quarter to a half inch wide on both sides of the dough still leaving out the 2-inch space at both the top and bottom of the dough. Make sure you have the same number of strips on both sides.
Fold the 2 inch top dough over the filling and start to braid by crisscrossing the strips you’ve made (place one strip of dough on one side over other on the other side). Continue to braid down the dough until the loaf is formed. When you have about two more strips to go on both sides, fold the bottom part over the filling and crisscross the remaining strips over the folded dough then pinch the dough to secure it. – I am not so sure if I have been able to do justice to this explanation.🤔 Please watch the video if you are still having difficulty.
Use the parchment paper to lift the braided loaves into the pan and leave to rise for another 30 Minutes.
Preheat your oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit and place a tray of water in the bottom rack of your Oven to steam up the oven. Please do this, it is very important!
Place the bread in the Oven and bake between 20 to 25 minutes or till a toothpick inserted in the middle of the bread comes out clean.
