Now I’ve been debating to post this Chicken Filled Buns recipe or not for a while now, the kids and I love them but Adam is not so keen, he reckons you guys wont be either, so tell me, what do you think?
Ideal for lunch, school lunchbox, days out or picnics. You can also make the Buns plain without the filling, so you can have with Soup.The filling was made using spices from @greenfields_spices who are one of the sponsors of this year’s @londonhalalfoodfestival which I’ll be live on stage at! The Buns I adapted from @afeastforfriends which has an amazing variety of easy to follow recipes so check them out!
