Flossy Chicken Bun 鸡肉松奶酥面包





Last week I came across several packets of chicken floss which we brought back from Malaysia during the recent Chinese New Year holiday. Prior to turning vegan, I used quite a fair bit chicken floss in baking and occasionally as toppings to congee or certain dishes. 

The last time I made chicken flossy buns was at least 2 years ago and ever since then I have been buying from Bread Talk whenever my hubby got sick of eating home made breads. For this bread, I fully utilized our supply of chicken floss to the fullest as bread fillings and decorations.

Here is the taiwanese soft bread recipe which I use extensively in most of my bread recipe. With this recipe, I could cut down the '汤种' scalded dough method and go straight into making the bread while still expecting soft airy outcome.
