Preparation time: 10 mins

Cooking time: 10 mins

Home kit: large low sided baking tray, large saucepan

Away kit: The baking tray you cooked it on

Serves: kickball team


  • A fresh cob loaf
  • 2 chicken breasts cut into 1 inch cubes
  • 1 small tin sweetcorn (195g), the Devil’s Leavings.
  • 250g cream cheese
  • 250g sour cream
  • A packet of spring onion soup mix (difficult to find these days, a chicken stock cube works well too)

Method: Preheat the oven to 180oC

First half

Use a bread knife to cut a circular lid from the top of the loaf. Being careful not to cut through to the base of the bread cut a vertical cylinder of bread. Use your hands to pull out the soft bread until you are left with a crust bowl. Slice or break the extracted bread into fingers and scatter on the baking tray.

Put the cubes of chicken into the pan and cover with water, bring to the boil and simmer for 10 minutes. Drain and set aside to cool.

Second half

Put the sweetcorn, cream cheese, sour cream and spring onion mix into a large saucepan and place it over medium heat, stirring constantly, until it is softened.

Pour the filling mixture into the crust bowl and top with the crust lid. Put the assembly into the oven for 15 minutes to toast the bread.

Full time results

Remove from the oven, stick on the table allow to cool a bit and eat with your fingers using the toasted bread to dip.
