Chicken wontons

Made a batch of chicken wontons recently. They're definitely one of my favourite things to eat; so slippery and tasty. I usually make heaps, eat some and freeze the rest for later use, with noodles in soup, or just boiled with chili and dumpling sauce as a snack...yums!

They're incredibly easy to make too, recipe below:

Filling:
250g minced chicken
sugar, salt and pepper (pinch each)
2 teaspoons potato flour
1 tablespoon water
1 packet on wonton pastry

Mix the chicken with the salt, pepper, sugar, potato flour and water.
Stir until the water is absorbed into chicken.
Place 1 teaspoon of chicken mince in the centre of the wonton pastry.
Gather the edges of the pastry at the top. Pinch and twist to seal the top.
Repeat with the rest of the pastry and mince.

If you want to cook them in soup, just follow these steps:

Soup seasoning:
1 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon sugar
ground white pepper, a pinch)
2 drops soy sauce
1 shallot, finely chopped
1.2 tablespoon of fried shallots
Chinese greens
2 cups chicken stock/water

Bring pot of water to boil.
Place the chicken wontons in boiling water, stirring occasionally to avoid them sticking to the pot. Once they float to the surface, wait for a further 2 minutes, then drain and put them into a serving bowl.
Use the same pot to blanch the Chinese greens, drain and discard the water.
Boil the stock/water for the soup. Put all the soup seasoning over the wontons in a bowl. Pour the soup over the wontons.

Oh yummers! I had the same thing for dinner last night. Except mine was filled with minced prawn and chicken.

Good job on wrapping them so nicely, mine just end up as little triangles :)

It works good with ground pork too! I usually use ground pork because the texture is more firm. I also add shrimp and marinate in addition to what you use, some sesame oil and soy sauce! yum!

For each of three pregnancies I have craved chicken wontons with unstoppable ferocity. Which is why I'm feeling somewhat alarmed to be drooling over images of yours...
