Creamy Chicken Apple Chili in Individual Whole Wheat Bread Bowls

I made this chicken chili late last summer and was impressed by how great it was. As a child Andy enjoyed eating soups out of bread bowls, so I granted his wish today. I found a recipe for easy bread bowls using pizza dough. I pulled one of my homemade whole wheat pizza balls out of the freezer and to thaw over night.

The bread bowls turned out quite a bit smaller than I anticipated and though cooked through were a bit doughy. The meal was still enjoyable (and I conclude once again that this soup is a keeper); however, I’ll be looking for a new bread bowl recipe this for this fall.

Preheat oven to 375 degrees F. Coat a large baking sheet with cooking spray.

Divide dough into 4 equal portions (or 2 if you want larger bowls) and roll each portion into a ball.

Place balls on prepared baking sheet and bake for 15–20 minutes. Remove from oven and when cool enough to handle, cut a small portion from the top of each ball (reserve cut-out piece for another use). Press in the center, making room for the chili. Spoon chili into the bread bowls and top with desired toppings.
