ABOUT Sayaka

I'm originally from Japan and we have this bread called kare pan (means curry bread). This recipe is inspired by the kare pan and I recreated it for my husband who loves chicken. This recipe is easy to make and also very versatile. Once you know this recipe you can simply change the stuffing and make your own creations. My recipe uses Pillsbury crescent rolls in a very different way and it can bring many creative possibilities to people who try and share this recipe.
