4-ingredient chicken bread bowls

There are many uncertainties in life.

And uncertainties are unpleasant. In fact, sometimes I want stab uncertainties in the face.

I really, really wish I knew what the future holds. For sure. Without a doubt.

But uncertainty is just never knowing.

We all find the strength to deal with difficult situations when they happen. It’s the not knowing that troubles the best of us.

I’ll tell you what I do know for certain though.

I know that when you put chicken and tomatoes and cheese inside a hollowed-out bread bun, bake it, and eat it, you will be happier.

This is true. I swear it.

Choose a soft bun with a slightly firm exterior so it’s easy for you to take the centre out.

You can fill it with anything really, but I love this combination of minced chicken, juicy tomatoes, and melty cheese. You’d like it too 🙂

After it’s baked, the bread is toasted on the outside, but the insides are moist and bursting with the delicious filling.

Cut it open and watch yumminess come tumbling out.

And about that uncertainty – let’s try to remember that it essentially means you don’t know how something will turn out. It could possibly be bad, but it could also be wonderfully good.


So that’s what we’re doing then.

In the face of uncertainty, let’s focus on the possibility of awesomeness.

Life is too short to worry 🙂 And the best things are yet to come!


4-ingredient chicken bread bowls

Prep time: 5 mins
Cook time: 25 mins
Makes: 2


2 plain buns
200g chicken mince, cooked (I stir-fried mine with garlic, onions, and salt)
2 tomatoes, chopped
50g cheese, grated (use any cheese you like)

1. Preheat the oven to 180º C. Cut a hole in the top of each bun and gently remove the centre, keeping the outer bowl-shape intact.
2. Fill the hollows with the mince, followed by the tomatoes, and then the cheese. Place on a wire rack and bake for 25 minutes. I put the grill setting on for the last 2 minutes. Remove and eat warm.

Oh and before you go, if you’re a little blue today and need a pep talk, this video may help 🙂
