We love these little BBQ chicken buns by MasterChef SA runner-up Siphokazi Mdlankomo. They make a great dinner party treat!

3 tbsp tomato sauce

2 tbsp vegetable oil
2 tbsp vinegar
2 tbsp spicy chicken soup powder
1 tbsp smoked paprika
2 tsp peeled and grated ginger
2 tsp crushed garlic
4 chicken thighs
1 kg ready-made bread dough
1. Preheat oven to 200°C.

3. Shred the chicken and mix with the pan juices.
4. Divide dough into 12 portions and roll to form discs. Spoon a little shredded chicken into the centre of each disc, fold over the sides and shape into a ball.
