Asian Chicken Dumplings

 Asian Chicken Dumplings
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

  • 1 teaspoon salt

  • 1 package (10 ounces) pot sticker or gyoza wrappers
