These tasty treats are commonly served as an appetizer or snack in China. I've adapted this recipe from one I found for pork combined with the tips my best friend's mother (who is from Taiwan) taught me about Chinese cooking.
- 1 chicken breast, cut into small pieces
- 4 tablespoons light soy sauce
- 2 tablespoons sesame oil
- 1 green onion, finely sliced
- 1 teaspoon oyster sauce
- 1⁄2 teaspoon sesame seeds
- 24 wonton wrappers
- 1 cup chicken broth
- 1 cup water
Directions See How It's Made
- Cut the chicken breast into small pieces and stir fry in 2 tablespoons soy sauce and 1 tablespoon sesame oil. Let cool until warm.
- In a bowl, combine chicken with remainder of soy sauce, sesame oil, green onion, oyster sauce and sesame seeds.
- Put a small amount of the mixture into each wonton wrapper and fold diagonally. Putting a little bit of water on the edges helps seal them, but it often takes a bit of pressing. Make sure they are sealed so that the sauce doesn't leak out.
- Put the chicken broth and water into a saucepan and bring to a boil.
- Drop the wonton parcels into the saucepan and boil for 3-5 mins (they will look like cooked noodles when they are done). Only put a few in at a time so they are not touching as they tend to stick together.
- Remove with a slotted spoon and serve warm with soy sauce to dip.
