Seeded bread rolls and quick Coronation Chicken

Seeded bread rolls in basket

I’ve got back into bread making recently and boy is it satisfying. What with jubilee weekend fast approaching and a flurry of picnics and barbecues on the cards, I thought i’d rustle up some bread rolls using this amazing flour I snapped up from Waitrose.
