  • 2 cups white flour
  • tsp baking powder
  • ½ tsp salt
  • 3 Tbsp butter, cubed or grated
  • ¾ cup milk
  • 300 g chicken, ground
  • 1 small onion
  • ½ cup parsley, or cilantro, chopped
  • salt, to taste
  • black pepper, to taste
  • 2 Tbsp olive oil, for frying
  • 1 egg, lightly beaten
  • sesame seeds
  • 1 Tbsp unsalted butter, melted


  • Preheat the oven to 355F.
  • To make the dough, combine 2 cups of flour, salt, and baking powder in a large bowl. Add in 3 Tbsp of cubed or grated butter, and mix it in with your fingers until the mixture resembles breadcrumbs.
  • Pour ¾ cup of milk in the center and mix until the mixture forms into a dough. Place into a bowl, cover, and let the dough rest for half an hour. The dough will become smooth and easy to work with.

Prepare the filling:

  • Heat 2 Tablespoons olive oil or butter in a frying pan and add ground chicken breast.
  • Cook for 2 minutes over medium heat, then add one small finely chopped onion and cook for 2 more minutes.
  • Add chopped parsley or cilantro, season with salt and pepper and mix until the ingredients are well combined.
  • Set aside while preparing the dough.
  • Divide the dough into 8 equal pieces. Form each piece into a ball.
  • Lightly flour the working surface and start forming your chicken buns by rolling each ball into a 4 inch circle and placing one full Tablespoon of the filling in the middle of each circle.
  • Gather edges of circles over the filling, and pinch them together to seal.
  • Place the buns on a greased baking tray, sealed side down.
  • Brush each bun with lightly beaten egg and sprinkle with sesame seeds.
  • Bake at 355F for 30 minutes until the buns turn golden brown.
  • Brush lightly with melted butter as soon as you take them out of the oven.
  • Transfer onto a serving dish and enjoy!
