  • Make the dough first, as it will need at least 1 hour to rise or double in size. Using a stand up mixter or a large mixing bowl, combine sifted flour and salt together. Combine warm milk, warm water, olive oil, sugar, and egg.
  • In a cup dissolve yeast, sugar, and WARM milk. Combine and set aside for 5 minutes.
  • Pour yeast into flour and knead until dough is soft and elastic.
  • Cover the bowl you have the dough in, and let it rise for about an hour.
  • To prepare the filling. Wash and pat dry chicken. Cut into bite size or small cubes. Add cornstarch, flour, honey, salt, pepper, paprika, and garlic powder. Mix until combined.
  • On a large skillet, over medium to high heat, add the olive oil.
  • Add the chicken and cook until tender and crisp.
  • Add chopped bell peppers, and mix with the chicken together.
  • Set aside and let it cool down before stuffing.
  • Once the dough doubled in size, punch the dough and divide into 4 and then 8. You want the dough to be size of your palm.
  • Roll into a flattened oval and add about 2 tbsp of the filling, a slice or two of dill pickles, and slice of half of Colby Cheese.
  • Bring the edges of the dough together and close tightly.
  • Place stuffed buns on a baking pan.
  • Brush with egg and sprinkle sesame seeds.
  • Bake in a preheated oven on 375 F degrees for about 12-15 minutes or until golden on top.
