This recipe appeared in SHAPE magazine's August 2000 issue. I've been making it ever since. My husband loves to eat them and always requests them on his birthday. I love that they freeze well.

  1. To create the filling, mix the ground chicken, green onions, soy sauce, salt, and ground pepper in a large bowl.
  2. Place an eighth of the mixture in the center of a wrapper.
  3. Use a water to dampen the corners and edges of the wrapper.
  4. Pull the corners up around the filling and press them together, creating a neat little package.
  5. Repeat 7 more times until you have created 8 wontons.
  6. (If you're cooking in bulk and want to freeze the wontons, stop here.) In a non-stick skillet, heat sesame oil over medium heat.
  7. Place the wontons in the skillet, seam side up, and cook for approximately 2 minutes.
  8. When the bottoms of the wontons begin to brown, add chicken broth.
  9. Place a lid on the skillet and cook until chicken is done, approximately 5 minutes.
  10. Serve with soy sauce.
