Chicken Mushroom Baked Pao


Pao is a originally a type of steamed, filled bun or bread-like (made with yeast) item in various Chinese cuisines, as there is much variation as to the fillings and the preparations. In its bun-like aspect, it is very similar to the traditional Chinese mantou. It can be filled with meat and/or vegetarian filling.

The recipe was supposed to be fried in a pan with some oil and water but I did try to bake it in an oven and it did work.

Interesting part is that there are two types of dough: one with yeast and the other with baking powder, which then be mixed together with butter. Normally shortening is used but I prefer to use butter instead.

The filling is chicken with mushroom and I pour some sesame oils prior baking.


Ingredients: organic cake flour, yeast, organic turbinado sugar, baking powder, water, chicken fillet, mushroom, Chinese cabbage, garlic, green onions, sesame oil, organic coconut oil, fish sauce, vegetarian mushroom seasoning, pepper, salt.
