For the chicken you will need:
leftover slow roasted chicken, hand shredded
salt, sugar, onion powder, black pepper, and fish sauce to taste
some chicken broth or chicken stock
For the hoisen sauce:
Hoisen sauce(recommended Koon Chun brand)
a splash of sesame oil
brown sugar to taste
For the fried ginger:
one whole knob of ginger, peeled then sliced julienne
salt, sugar, fish sauce, black pepper to taste
You will also need some plain, frozen buns(re-steamed)and then sliced open like a hotdog bun
Some green onions(white parts only), sliced julienne
On medium high heat, add in some olive oil into your hot pan. Next, add in your ginger slices and stir for a few seconds. Add in a little sugar, salt, black pepper, and fish sauce to taste. Fry until crispy. Set aside.
In a mixing bowl with your shredded chicken, add a little bit of salt, sugar, black pepper, onion powder and fish sauce. Next, add just enough chicken stock to re-moisten your chicken. Taste check. Don't make it too salty though, because you will get most of the flavor from your hoisen sauce! On medium high heat, add some olive oil and throw in your garlic. Stir fry it a little bit, and then add in your chicken. Heat it through and taste check once more. Remove and set aside.
Using the same pan, add in your hoisen sauce. Next, add a splash of sesame oil, but don't overdo it. Then, add in some brown sugar to taste. Finally, move your pan over to your stove, and on medium low heat, stir your hoisen sauce paste, just until all the brown sugar dissolves. Remove and place into a small, serving dish.
|And that's all folks!! All that's left is steaming up the buns! This is a fun dish to make cause then all of your guests can assemble their own mini sandwiches, as they please!!|
