Chicken Dumplings with Soy Ginger Sauce

So if you could have one last meal what would it be? Mine without a doubt would have to include an endless supply of these Chicken Dumplings served with Soy Ginger Sauce. To me they are the ultimate comfort food, light, airy and so delicious. Not so long ago I remember reading about the most requested last meals for individuals sitting on death row. Fried shrimp was way up there. Surprisingly Whoppers and Big Macs were not far behind. If only they knew about my chicken dumplings with Soy Ginger Sauce

  • 1 Pound of Ground Chicken

  • 3 Tb soy sauce

  • 1 cup of finely chopped scallions

  • 1 Tb Sesame Oil

  • 1 Tb grated Ginger Root

  • 1/2 pound of Napa Cabbage finely chopped and squeeze out excess liquid

  • 1 pound package of wonton wrappers

In a large bowl combine ground chicken, scallions. soy sauce, sesame oil and grated ginger root. Make certain everything is very well blended together before you add next ingredient . Add the chopped cabbage, mix well. Place 1 wonton wrapper on a board. In the middle of the wonton place 1 full ts of chicken mixture. Moisten entire edge lightly with water (use your finger), fold over wonton to form a triangle. Make sure its well sealed and not too over stuffed. Repeat this process till all the filling is gonzo. I like to boil my dumpings in a large pot of boiling water. Sometimes I add a can of chicken broth for extra flavor. Cook about a dozen at a time, once they float add 1/2 a cup of tap water, when the pot returns to a boil the dumpling should be thoroughly cooked. Take out cooked dumplings and throw in next batch. After the 1st dumplings come out I usually cut one in half to see if it is fully cooked inside.

Mix above ingredients together, serve with Chicken Dumplings


  1. Oh, these look delicious. I like the idea of mixing in Balsamic Vinegar for the dipping sauce. Must add a nice slightly sweet punch. Yum!
