For Dough:

  • 2-1/2 cup flour
  • 3 tbsp dry milk powder
  • 2 tbsp sugar
  • 2-1/4 teaspoon yeast
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1 egg
  • 1/2 cup oil
  • 1/2 cup warm milk

For the filling:

  • 1-1/2 cups boiled chicken shredded
  • 3 tbsp Butter or Oil
  • 1 medium onion finely chopped
  • 1 tbsp plain flour maida
  • 1 cup Milk
  • 1 cup Cheddar Cheese
  • 1 tsp black pepper crushed
  • 1 tsp red pepper crushed
  • Salt to taste
  • few coriander and mint leaves chopped

For Buns Topping

  • 1 Egg white for egg wash
  • White sesame seeds for sprinkling
  • 2 tbsp melted butter for brushing


To Make The Dough:

  • Sieve the flour, salt and dry milk powder in a large mixing bowl. Add sugar, instant yeast, and milk powder then add in an egg, oil and warm milk. Knead almost 10 minutes or till it forms a soft smooth dough. If required add a few splashes more of warm milk.
  • Place the dough in a greased bowl and apply oil on the dough. Cover with a damp towel and keep in a warm corner of your kitchen to rise for 1 hour or till the dough is double in volume.
  • Punch down the dough lightly using your palm and divide them equally.

To Make The Chicken Filling:

  • Meanwhile dough is rising, prepare your buns filling. Melt butter in a pan over medium heat.
  • Saute onion in butter until translucent. Now add flour and cook for 2-3 minutes or till it gives out a nice aroma. Now add milk and cook for 4-5 minutes or until it turned into nice creamy thickened texture.
  • Add the shredded chicken and stir well. Season with salt, red pepper and black pepper.
  • Sprinkle fresh coriander leaves and 1/2 cup cheddar cheese.Stir until well combined and remove from the heat. Let it cool completely.

To Assemble the Stuffed Chicken Buns:

  • Preheat the oven at 180 degree C for 15 minutes before baking.
  • Once the dough has risen, take a small portion of the dough and flatten it on Spider Strainer. Place a spoonful of the chicken stuffing in the center, top off with a little cheddar cheese and pull the edges together to seal and roll the dough into a smooth ball.
  • Place the dough ball with seam side down on a greased baking tray. Likewise shape all the buns with stuffing and place on the baking tray an inch apart from each other.
  • Now brush the top of all buns with egg wash and sprinkle sesame seeds on top. Cover with a cloth and let it prove for another 20 minutes.
  • Bake in a preheated oven at 180°C for 20 minutes. Remove from the oven and brush the buns top with butter (it will gives them soft texture). Delicious Stuffed Chicken Buns are ready to serve. ENJOY :)
