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 lb ground chicken
- 1⁄3 cup green onion, chopped
- 2 tablespoons soy sauce
- salt and pepper
- 8 egg roll wraps (6X6 in.)
- 1 tablespoon dark sesame oil
- 1⁄2 cup chicken broth
- To create the filling, mix the ground chicken, green onions, soy sauce, salt, and ground pepper in a large bowl.
- Place an eighth of the mixture in the center of a wrapper.
- Use a water to dampen the corners and edges of the wrapper.
- Pull the corners up around the filling and press them together, creating a neat little package.
- Repeat 7 more times until you have created 8 wontons.
- (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.
- Place the wontons in the skillet, seam side up, and cook for approximately 2 minutes.
- When the bottoms of the wontons begin to brown, add chicken broth.
- Place a lid on the skillet and cook until chicken is done, approximately 5 minutes.
- Serve with soy sauce.
for more flavor, in place of chicken i used 3 lean sweet turkey sausages removed from their casings (the kind you buy to eat in a bun). i also added a few cloves of diced garlic, 1/3 c. shredded cabbage, 1/4 c. shredded carrots, and about 1 tsp. of fresh ginger. like other raters, i also used won ton wrappers. these were AWESOME! thanks for posting J Wa :)
I used Spring Roll wrap, followed the recipe except after adding the broth and cooking them later in the day I reheated them in a 375 oven for 20 minutes and crisped the outside -- Delicious thanks for posteing J Wa
These were really good! We added more vegetables: 1 stalk diced celery, 1 shredded carrot, 1/4 cup diced red pepper, and some minced ginger and garlic. I think using the sesame oil adds a lot of flavor.
