Chicken Siopao Asado Recipe

  1. Prepare your filling. First, heat oil in a pan over medium heat.
  2. Saute the garlic and onions.
  3. Add the shredded chicken and cook for 2-3 minutes. Add soy sauce, oyster sauce, hoisin sauce, and sugar then mix well.
  4. Add your water. Cover and simmer for about 15-20 minutes, stirring occasionally. You can also add more water if it starts to dry out.
  5. Put in the corn starch (diluted in water) and mix until the texture of the sauce thickens. Set aside.
  6. Next is to make your dough. Put warm water in a medium bowl then add your yeast and sugar. Mix well.
  7. Leave the mixture for 10 to 15 minutes in a warm, dry place.
  8. In a large bowl, put-in the flour, sugar, baking powder, shortening (or lard), and the yeast mixture (bubbles should have formed on top). Mix thoroughly.
  9. Knead the combined mixture until the texture of the dough becomes smooth, adding more flour if needed.
  10. Brush your bowl with a little bit of oil. Place the dough back in the bowl and cover the top with cling wrap. Let the dough rise by setting it aside for at least 2 hours. It should double in size.
  11. Knead the dough again. Form a log then cut into individual slices (this will be the dough per individual siopao so you can cut it according to preferred size).
  12. Flatten the dough until a round shape is formed using a rolling pin.
  13. Place the chicken asado filling in the middle of the flattened dough and top with sliced hard-boiled egg(optional).
  14. Lift the edges of the dough up around the filling, then twist and pinch the edges together to seal. Cut parchment paper into squares and place at the bottom of your siopao to prevent from sticking into your streamer.
  15. Place the siopao in a steamer and steam for 15-20 minutes.
  16. Serve hot. Enjoy!
