I am so glad that you printed this. I went into the ABC website that Charles fan was on when he made his steamed chicken buns and ABC printed the recipe, except there was an error in the amount of sugar used. I contacted Out the Door and ABC and never got a correction.


Oops...misspelled Charles Phan's name....
Thank you Andrea!

Andrea Nguyen

Hi Darlyne -- Yep, that was a major typo on the ABC site. Let me know your thoughts on this version of the filling.


Hi Andrea,
I made these chicken bao tonight for my family and I am so excited to report how great they turned out! My 4 and 2 year old boys devoured them up. We had to restrain ourselves from eating them all so they could have them for lunch tomorrow too. I actually used 1/3 whole wheat flour in place of the regular flour in your recipe and I was pleased that the texture, fluffiness, and chewiness of the bao turned out so well. The filling was excellent and I actually used some to also make steamed dumplings. Yum....it feels good to be able to make this from scratch. Thank you for teaching and sharing!

Jennifer: Delighted that the chicken bao filling is up to snuff. Thanks for the flour tip too!

Of course, as a HR Pro you know where it REALLY gets interesting, if you decide to walk the employee out on the same day you receive the notice - the decision on whether to pay them for the two weeks notice you are waiving. My experience suggests this is primarily a cultural call, and if you want the majority of your employees to work a notice when they resign, you don't want to withhold the notice pay.


Hi Andrea,
I am new to this website. I have come across this recipe and really interested in making them. Do you think i will be able to freeze them? Thank you in advance :)


HI Andrea

I made your chicken buns tonight and they turned out wonderfully. I am freezing the remainder but wondering if I need to let the dough finish 'puffing' before doing so. I noticed the earlier ones I made continued to puff (and the pleats kinda disappeared) The later ones (end of the batch) still had the nice pleats (closed satchel method) since the finished product didn't have a chance to sit around as long so I quickly put them into the freezer. I guess I'll know when I steam them. Any suggestions ?

Hi Andrea,

I made the buns couple of times. Sometimes they are perfect, smooth and round but sometimes they are not. I steamed the buns for 15 minutes but as soon as I open the lid slowly, the buns were deflated. It make an ugly wrinkle over the buns. Do you know what's the problem?

One of our scenes takes an environmentally ungrateful gang to China to see how we are implicated in the pollution that is caused by industry there. As I was strolling around the docks I discovered a very interesting piece of history. It turns out the Liverpool has the oldest chinese community in Britain, which came into being through its trading as a port. In fact the Cathedral itself is right plumb in the middle of this area and a massive Chinese Arch has been built a stones throw away to mark this fact.

Pakistan Prime Minister Syed Yusuf Raza Gilani will visit Iran from September 11 to 13 for talks with the Iranian leadership.

“The recent visit of Iranian Foreign Minister Ali Akbar Salehi to Pakistan and his meetings with Pakistani leaders will provide important substantive inputs into the visit by the Prime Minister Gilani to Iran,” the APP quoted Foreign Office Spokesperson Tehmina Janjua, as saying at the weekly press briefing.


Could you make a vegetarian version of these by adding more mushroom in place of chicken?


Is it possible to make these buns vegetarian using more mushroom in place of the chicken? Thanks!

Justin Bieber Shoes

yes. think this is a great post because it is also very realistic and it perfectly describes the reporter's or at least the media's current tendency to do whatever it takes to obtain the best content to base their news on.


Where do I find the recipe for the dough?
