Chinese Dumplings
I had some leftover chicken, green onions, 1/2 red bell pepper and a very small amount of cabbage that I wanted to use. I decided to make Chicken Pot Stickers to serve with dinner tonight. I’ve seen them served with some sort of brown sauce, but am not sure of exactly what type of sauce that is. So tonight I served them  and plain. Sometimes, they’re browned on the bottom. I don’t prefer them that way, so I only boiled them. I’m not sure of the exact quantities of the ingredients, but Hubster really liked them, so I hope next time I create them they’re just as delicious.

Chinese Dumplings - Chicken Pot Stickers

Chinese Dumplings - Chicken Pot Stickers

1 cooked chicken breast, 1/2 c. shredded cabbage, 3 green onions, sesame seeds, 1/2 red bell pepper, , rice vinegar, fresh ground pepper, ground ginger, an egg white, 16 round Wonton wrappers

Place ingredients in food processor and blend until well mixed. The mixture should be somewhat spreadable, yet also a little chunky. Place a spoonful of mixture into center of wonton wrapper, pull sides up and pinch closed. Allow pot stickers to rest. Bring water to boil in a large pot (I added a dash of soy sauce to the water). Boil for 8-10 minutes, drain water. Serve hot & enjoy!

*This dish could be vegetarian if you use TVP soaked in vegetable broth in place of the chicken.

What’s for dinner at your house tonight?
