Chicken Kugelhopf IFC #2

Kugelhopf is a light yeasted cake filled with nuts , raisins and candied fruits . It is baked in a special kugelhopf mold . Kugelhopf was one of the choice given by +Shobana Sekar  for this month's International Food Challenge. I have already posted the Traditional Quiche which is also one among the three recipes given for this month. I cannot stop trying new recipes if it is a savory challenge.

The recipe suggested was egg less version , as usual i have altered the recipe and made it as a chicken Kugelhopf . The stuffing was simple and easy but it had an awesome flavor to the bread.
