Ingredients

8 Mr Chen’s bao buns
4 free-range chicken thighs, cut into 1cm strips
Sea salt
Black pepper
½ cup corn flour
½ cup plain flour
Oil for frying
1 tbsp white sesame seeds, toasted
1 Lebanese cucumber, sliced
1 carrot, peeled, julienned

Sticky Sauce

¼ cup Mr Chen’s soy sauce
1 tbsp honey
1 tbsp Mr Chen’s rice wine vinegar
1 tbsp gochujang
1 clove garlic, minced

Method

Bring a wok of water up to the boil then place a steamer basket on top.

Place the flours into a mixing bowl then season the chicken strips with salt and pepper. Coat the chicken in flour, shaking off any excess. Heat the oil to 180 degrees in a small pot and fry the chicken in batches for 5 minutes, or until cooked through and golden. Drain on paper towel and repeat with all the chicken.

Place the bao buns into the steamer for 8-10 minutes, or until soft and fluffy. Meanwhile, place the sticky sauce ingredients into a small pot with 1/3 cup of water and bring up to a simmer. Cook for 5-6 minutes, or until thickened and sticky.
