Chicken Pockets with Cheese and Tomato

Chicken pockets with cheese and tomato
 I made these chicken pockets with cheese and tomato for dinner a few weeks ago, and it was a HIT! It also made great leftovers, which makes it even better. You will need:
any bread recipe that you like…or
1 TBS yeast
1 cup warm water
1 cup warm milk
1/2 cup chopped frozen spinach (thawed and drained)
2 TBS olive oil
2TBS Brown sugar
1 TBS salt
4-6 cups bread flour (I used half whole wheat and half white flour)
Dissolve the Yeast in the warm water…sit 5 min. Add all the other ingredients, stir, then knead for 5 min. Sit. 45 min in a warm place. Divide in the 2 inch size balls, stuff with a slice of Mozzarella cheese and a couple of piece of pre-cooked chicken. Pinch closed. Let rise again 30 min. Cook for around 20 min (or longer if needed) at 375.
  A couple of notes:
I pre-cooked the chicken by sauteing in olive oil and Italian seasoning.
You can also make without the meat, just cheese is good too!
For the topping
2 Cups chopped cherry tomatoes
a handful of fresh basil chopped finely
1/4 cup olive oil
1/2 tsp garlic salt
1 TBS minced garlic
(I never measure these out)
Combine and spoon over warm break pockets.
