Tumeric Chicken & Ricotta Stuffed Bread

chicken breasts sliced fairly think and cooked in a touch of olive oil
fresh paresly
whole milk ricotta cheese drained
black pepper
6 cups all purpose flour
2 tablespoons dry active yeast
2-3 cups warm milk
6 tablespoons olive oil

sesame seeds
one egg beaten

Make the filling first so it's cooled off when you ar ready to stuff the dough.
Saute the chicken and spices until well cooked and set to the side.
To prepare the dough by adding all ingredients and kneading until satiny and soft.
Set aside covered until doubled.
Break off golf ball size pieces, really whatever size you choose is fine. These were fairly big but it just depends on what I have cooked for dinner that night that determines the size of these bread treats.
Roll out the dough into shape to desired shape.
Fill them.
Let them rise again until your finger impression fills in slowly.
Brush on the beaten egg and then decorate with sesame seeds.
Bake at 400 until golden brown.
