Make a ball out of the dough. Wrap in plastic wrap and set aside in refrigerator for about 15 minutes.
Heat the oven to 200ºC (hot).
Sprinkle a smooth surface with flour.
Roll out the dough until you get a 30 cm x 40 cm rectangle. Using a knife or reel, cut the dough crosswise to obtain four 15 cm x 20 cm rectangles. Distribute the chicken filling among the dough rectangles.
