Planning a night in front of the telly? Bao buns are perfect for chilling out. Toss everything into the slow cooker and it’ll be ready by episode three of your box-set marathon.

Ingredients

Chicken breast, skinless, raw

4 medium

Dark Soy Sauce

2 tablespoons

Honey

1 tablespoons, level

Oyster Sauce

2 tablespoons

Rice Wine Vinegar

½ tablespoons

Root Ginger

1 tablespoons, finely grated

Instructions

  1. Put the chicken into a slow cooker. Mix the soy sauce, honey, oyster sauce, vinegar, ginger, garlic and chilli together in a small bowl, then pour over the chicken. Cover and cook on low for 3 hours, then transfer the chicken to a plate, shred with forks and keep warm.
  2. Pour the liquid from the slow cooker into a small pan and whisk in the cornflour. Gently simmer over a low-medium heat until the sauce is thick enough to coat the back of a spoon, then stir in the shredded chicken and heat through.
  3. Heat the buns to pack instructions, then stuff with the chicken, carrot and spring onions. Scatter over the coriander leaves and serve.

Notes

The pulled chicken can be frozen in an airtight container for up to 1 month.
