Recipe Preparation

To prepare a steamer for the buns, place 2" of water in a 4" full stainless-steel hotel pan. Place a 2" full stainless-steel perforated hotel pan inside the 4" pan. Place a cover on top of the pans. Heat the water enough to create steam inside of the pans while it is covered to steam the buns. 

To prepare à la carte
1. Place 2 buns in the heated steamer for 3–4 minutes, or until just warmed through. Add 57 g of pulled roasted chicken and 57 ml of curry chicken stock to a heated, nonstick sauté pan. Cook until the liquid has reduced.

2. Place 1 tsp. of canola oil in a heated, nonstick sauté pan. Add 15 g. of red peppers. Season to taste with salt and pepper. Sauté over medium-high heat until caramelized. Place 64 g slices of pineapple in the pan and caramelize on one side. 

3. Place the buns on a warmed serving plate. Open the buns. Place a slice of pineapple and ¼ oz. of red peppers on the bottoms of the 2 buns. Place 28 g of the warmed chicken on top of the peppers. Drizzle 1 tsp. of poblano mayonnaise on top of chicken. Place 7 g of pickled red onion slivers on top of the poblano mayonnaise and chicken. Sprinkle 1 tsp. of chopped parsley on top of the onions.
