Chicken Broccoli Bread Boats

Our kids love pizza. They can seriously enjoy pizza twice a week, thoroughly enjoy it. Me, however, I tire of having pizza. I’ll take something like these French bread boats stuffed with a cheesy chicken and broccoli filling over pizza anytime. It still kind of feel like pizza but on a whole new level. Minus having to take the time to make the dough, you are so very welcome.

I have a serious love relationship with open-faced sandwiches (just look under out appetizers category, so many to choose from). Those of you that are familiar with our blog, know that. I mean what better way to treat your friends and family at a party than a filling open-faced sandwich. These bread boats are like the lazy version of open-faced sandwiches. You just slice the bread in half and ye, pretty much fantastic.

The inspiration for these boats came from the broccoli and chicken puffs and chicken and spinach artichoke boats. Those bread boats are such a treat. Who needs dip when you can enjoy the dip in a bread boat. Genius idea!

I hope you enjoy these as much as we do. The filling is great prepare and refrigerate the night before if you are making these for a party and need to save time. 🙂
