Heat oven to 375°F. In 12-inch ovenproof nonstick skillet, melt butter over medium-high heat until sizzling.

Slowly stir in broth with spoon (wooden or nylon). Add bell pepper and ground red pepper. Cook 4 to 5 minutes, stirring occasionally, until thickened. Stir in chicken and cheese. Cook and stir until cheese is melted. Remove from heat; cover and keep warm.

Unroll dough on lightly floured work surface so short side of rectangle is pointed downward. Cut dough lengthwise into 8 equal 12-inch strips. To make pretzel shape, roll each strip into about 20-inch rope; form dough into U shape.

In small microwavable bowl, microwave 1/4 cup water uncovered on High 30 to 60 seconds or until very hot but not boiling. Add baking soda; stir until dissolved.
