Cooking Time

Ingredients

  • 8 Mr Chen’s Bao Buns
  • 4 boneless, skinless chicken thighs, trimmed of excess fat
  • 1 tbsp Mr Chen’s Light Soy Sauce
  • 1 tsp sesame oil
  • 1 tbsp sesame seeds, toasted
  • Handful of fresh coriander, thinly sliced red chilli and finely sliced spring onions, to garnish

 

For the sticky sauce

  • 1 tbsp Mr Chen’s Soy Sauce
  • 1 tbsp harissa paste
  • 1 tsp white wine vinegar
  • 1 tbsp runny honey
  • 1 tsp sesame oil

 

Method

1
While the buns are steaming, preheat a griddle pan over a high heat. Mix the chicken thighs with the soy sauce and sesame oil and massage well into the meat. Place on the hot griddle, opened out so they cook quickly. Griddle the chicken for about 5 minutes on each side, or until completely cooked through. If you don’t have a griddle pan, you can grill the chicken on a foil-lined tray.
2
Mix all the ingredients for the sticky sauce together in a jug and pour over the chicken in the griddle. Cook for 20-30 seconds, turning the chicken until well coated with the bubbling sauce. Transfer to a board, sprinkle with toasted sesame seeds and slice thickly. If grilling, you can return the chicken to the grill for a further 2-3 minutes.
3
Put the buns on a board or serving platter, and fill with the sticky chicken, fresh coriander, and spring onions.
