1 1/2 To 2 cups diced chicken

1 ts Cornstarch
1/2 ts Light soy sauce
1/2 ts Dark soy sauce
1/2 ts Sherry
1/2 ts 5 spice powder
1/2 ts Bean sauce
1/4 c Almond slivers
1/4 c Chopped celery

1/2 c Bamboo shoots
1 Stalks green onions, chopped

2/3 c Chicken broth
1 tb Cornstarch
1 tb Oyster sauce
1 ts Sesame oil
1 ts Sugar
1/2 ts Salt

Mix chicken with meat marinade for 1/2 hour or longer. Stir fry in 1

Stuff buns and cook as above.


Yield: 2 dozen

DOUGH: 1 recipe basic bun dough

FILLING: 1 4-ounce can of slice mushrooms 2 cups finely diced ham 2
stalks finely diced celery 1/2 cup canned bamboo shoots, finely diced
2 stalks green onions SAUCE MIXTURE: 2 tablespoons cornstarch 2
tablespoons sherry 2 tablespoons light soy sauce 1 tablespoon vinegar
1 tablespoon sesame oil 1/4 cup chicken broth 1 teaspoon hoisin sauce
1 teaspoon oyster sauce

Stir fry filling ingredients together for 2 minutes, then add sauce
mixture. Stir until thickened. Chill well before wrapping.


DOUGH: 1/2 recipe of basic bun dough.

FILLING: 6 pairs of Chinese pork sausage, cut into halves. You should
have 24 3-inch sausages. [These are very good, sweet sausages. I
can't think of anything to substitute for them. S.C.]

Divide dough into 24 balls. Roll each ball into 2-inch rounds.

Place sausage in middle and fold dough over, leaving ends open.
Place seam side down on square piece of was paper. Let rise in warm
place for 1 hour or so.

Steam for 10 minutes. Pork Sausage Buns can also be baked at 350F
for 20 to 25 minutes. Mix beaten egg whites with a little water and
sugar and brush buns (to keep crust soft). Brush with melted butter
when done.
