1. Steaming
Boil some water in a pot. Put the bao(A) in a steamer lined with parchment paper. Steam from boiling for 8 mins (12 mins if frozen) for soft pillowy goodness.
Microwave alternative:
Reheat just before serving. Place the unopened bao packet (A) in the microwave. Cook on high for 30-40 seconds (60 seconds if frozen) or until soft. Be careful not to over cook.

2. Filling
While the bao are steaming, pop the fried chicken (B) in the oven at 180 degrees for 10 mins until crispy and hot. Heat the Korean sauce (C) in a pan. When chicken is cooked, toss through the warm sticky sauce.

3. Assemble
Put the saucy chicken in a bao and top with pickles (D). Sprinkle with sesame seeds.
