  1. n a large saucepan, combine the chicken, water, tomato paste, paprika, lime juice and seasonings. Bring to a boil. Reduce heat to low. Simmer, uncovered, for 20 minutes or until liquid is evaporated, stirring occasionally. Discard bay leaf.
  2. Combine cream cheese and lime peel. On a large piece of foil, roll one tube of bread dough into a 14-in. x 10-in. rectangle. Spread with half of cream cheese mixture to within 1/2 in. of edges; sprinkle with half of the chicken mixture and shredded cheese.
  3. Starting with a long side and using foil, fold into thirds. Form a 14-in. x 4-in. loaf with a seam along one side. Pinch edges to seal. Transfer to a baking sheet. Repeat. Bake at 325° for 45-50 minutes or until golden brown.
  4. Remove to wire racks. Cool for 10 minutes before cutting into 1-in. slices. Arrange on a large serving platter to resemble ribs with a plastic skull if desired. Yield: 2 loaves (14 slices each).
