Chicken Alfredo Monkey Bread is savory pull-apart bread made with pizza dough, rotisserie chicken, alfredo sauce, and cheese.
CHICKEN ALFREDO MONKEY BREAD
I have made plenty of sweet monkey bread, including Orange Monkey Bread, 5 Ingredient Monkey Bread, and Apple Fritter Monkey Bread. So, it is kind of fun to add more savory pull-apart bread recipes like this one. This recipe starts with pizza dough. Then, it’s layered with cheese, rotisserie chicken, alfredo sauce, and more cheese!
CHICKEN ALFREDO MONKEY BREAD INGREDIENTS
Pizza Dough: Two tubes of store-bought pizza dough work great in this recipe!
Cheeses: Both mozzarella cheese and parmesan cheese are layered into this savory bread.
Chicken: Buy a rotisserie chicken to use or make your own slow cooker rotisserie chicken.
Alfredo Sauce: If you don’t have a jar of alfredo sauce to use, simply make your own sauce.
Repeat this layering process again to make Chicken Alfredo Monkey Bread.
HOW TO MAKE CHICKEN ALFREDO MONKEY BREAD
This pull-apart bread is easy to make, especially if you stick to store-bought ingredients. To get started, cut the pizza dough into 1/2-inch pieces, rolling each piece into a ball. Place the balls of pizza dough into a large bowl.
Next, top the bowl of pizza dough balls with olive oil, Italian seasoning, garlic, 1/2 cup of mozzarella cheese, and 1/2 cup of parmesan cheese. Use your hands to coat the dough balls with the ingredients. Once the dough balls are ready, it’s time to get the bread layered and baked.
In a sprayed bundt pan, add 1/2 cup of mozzarella cheese, 1/2 cup parmesan cheese, 1/2 of the coated pizza dough balls, 1/2 of the rotisserie chicken, and 1/2 of the alfredo sauce. Then, layer again with another 1/2 cup mozzarella, 1/2 cup parmesan, the remaining pizza dough balls, the remaining chicken, and the rest of the alfredo sauce. Finally, top it all off with the remaining mozzarella and parmesan cheeses.
Bake the Chicken Alfredo Monkey Bread for 45-50 minutes at 375°F, or until golden brown and the cheese has melted. Remove the bread from the oven and carefully invert the bundt pan onto a large plate or platter. Let the bread cool for a few minutes before serving. This is a delicious appetizer to share.
