Recipe recipe gua bao chicken

More and more gua bao are on the menu at our favorite Asian restaurants. However, this recipe is nothing new, it is even an ancestral recipe! It is terribly greedy and should be discovered as soon as possible if it has not already been done.

Bao means “bread”, they are also called “lotus flower” breads. These are very easy muffins to make, but they do require a little waiting time. Originally, this dish was called “the tiger bites the lion” (hu yao shi) prepares wedding banquets. But you don’t need to find the one you love here to try this amazingly delicious dish! As part of an Asian meal or as an aperitif for dinner, they will have the best effect. For vegetarians, discover the delicious steamed dumplings!
