Baked Chicken Mayo Buns Recipe – Chicken Buns Recipe with step wise pictures.
I have tasted this in a bakery near by and this is my favourite. The pillowy soft buns are topped with a creamy chicken filling and it is baked to golden perfection. This is perfect to put in your kids lunch box or it will make a great after school snack. The dough and filling can be made a day in advance and stored in fridge. The creamy chicken filling is super delicious and when it gets baked the top layer forms a crust like and taste so yummy.
I used my homemade pizza dough as the base and it was so soft, light and fluffy. The top layer is so juicy and creamy which is yummy. I made the top layer mild because this is my little one’s favourite, but you can add some more chilli flakes and make it super spicy. You can even add some colourful bell peppers to make it super colourful.
Hope you will give this a try and let me know how it turns out for you.
