To celebrate my two daughters' Chinese heritage, we occasionally make Chinese food, especially around traditional Eastern holidays like Chinese New Year. I took a traditional pork dumpling recipe and modified it using ground chicken so that we can have them any time, not just holidays. —Joy Olcott, Millersville, Pennsylvania

Nutritional Facts

1 dumpling: 45 calories, 1g fat (0 saturated fat), 10mg cholesterol, 109mg sodium, 6g carbohydrate (0 sugars, 0 fiber), 3g protein.


  1. Place the first seven ingredients in a food processor; cover and process until finely chopped. Add water; cover and process until blended.
  2. Place 1 tablespoon chicken mixture in the center of one wrapper. (Keep remaining wrappers covered with a damp paper towel to prevent them from drying out.) Moisten edges with water. Fold wrapper over filling to form a semicircle; press edges firmly to seal, pleating the front side to form three to five folds.
  3. Holding sealed edges, stand each dumpling on an even surface; press to flatten bottom. Repeat with remaining wrappers and filling; cover dumplings with plastic wrap.
  4. Line a steamer basket with four cabbage leaves. Arrange dumplings in batches 1 in. apart over cabbage; place in a large saucepan over 1 in. of water. Bring to a boil; cover and steam for 10-12 minutes or until a thermometer reads 165°. Discard cabbage. Repeat. Serve with soy sauce. Yield: 2-1/2 dozen.
