  2. While the dough is resting, prepare the filling. For the filling mix together the shredded chicken,  pizza sauce, oregano, basil, sweetcorn, capsicum, onion, black olives, salt and cheese.
  3. Punch down the risen dough & divide it into 10 equal parts. Take a portion of the dough & roll it into a circle. Take a ball and flatten it to make a circle, place a little of the chicken cheese mixture in the center of the circle & roll the dough back again into a ball. Repeat with the other dough & filling portions.
  4. Dip each ball into beaten egg & roll in bread crumbs.
  5. Heat oil for deep-frying. When the oil becomes really hot, reduce heat to minimum & carefully place the donuts into the hot oil.  Deep fry on medium low heat till golden brown & crisp.
  6. Serve hot.
