For the filling:

For the dough:

2 cups whole milk
¼ cup chicken broth
2 cups all-purpose flour

1. In a medium pot, heat olive oil, then sauté garlic and onions until soft and brown. Add shredded chicken, salt, and paprika. Stir to incorporate.

2. Transfer mixture into a bowl, add cream cheese and parsley. Mix well.

3. In the same pot, add butter, chicken broth, and milk. Bring to a boil. Stir in flour until dough is formed.
