Recipe by DDW
This recipe comes together quickly and is great for using up leftover chicken or turkey. I made the recipe without the crunchy won tons because the packages were just too large for me when the recipe calls for only 8 skins. If you want some extra crunch, chow mein noodles would be good. We served this over brown rice.
- 8 wonton skins, 3X3
- 2 teaspoons canola oil
- 1⁄4 teaspoon salt
- 1 tablespoon canola oil
- 2 scallions, trimmed and thinly sliced
- 3 garlic cloves, sliced
- 4 cups napa cabbage, thinly sliced
- 3⁄4 cup celery, thinly sliced
- 1 (8 ounce) can bamboo shoots, drained and julienned
- 2 cups shiitake mushrooms, cleaned, trimmed and thinly sliced
- 3⁄4 teaspoon sugar
- 1 cup low sodium chicken broth
- 1 1⁄2 tablespoons low sodium soy sauce
- 2 tablespoons toasted sesame oil
- 1 1⁄2 teaspoons cornstarch
- 1 tablespoon cooking sherry
- 2 cups cooked chicken
- 2 cups cooked brown rice
- 1 tablespoon toasted sesame seeds
