Recipe: Chicken Char Siu Buns

You may have had something similar (pork chashu buns) at the ramen restaurant. 

This is an easy, chicken version which you can make at home in under 15 mins. Sandwich the chicken char siu with some lettuce in a fluffy steamed lotus leaf buns (also called Hirata buns). Your guests or fellow diners can even assemble their own buns at the dinner table. My kids definitely enjoyed it.
