Chicken buns are my girls favorite thing to eat. They are easy to make and keep well in the fridge but the thing I love most about chicken buns other than how easy they are to make is how incredibly comforting it is to eat! The soft doughy bread, the flavorful chicken and the cheesy goodness…. Pair the chicken buns with a cup of tea and you got yourself a winning ticket!
