  • 4 spring onions chopped
  • 3 inch piece of fresh ginger, minced
  • 4 c water
  • 1 1/2 c chicken broth

  • 2 tbsp honey
  • Dumplings:
  • 1/2 lb ground chicken
  • 2 tbsp minced garlic
  • 2 tbsp ginger
  • 2 tbsp lemongrass
  • 2 tbsp soy sauce
  • 1 egg yolk
  • 1 tbsp red chili paste
  • 1 green onion chopped finely
  • (you could also add some mushrooms and beansprouts to the mix but I didn't have any)
  • 1 package prepared wonton wrappers

Directions

  • This meal is so tasty and so easy to make. It requires a bit of patience through dumpling assembly, but no big deal!
  • Ginger Broth:
  • 4 c water
  • 1 1/2 c chicken broth
  • 1 c soy sauce (I use reduced sodium)
  • 3 inch piece of fresh ginger, minced
  • 2 garlic cloves, minced
  • 4 spring onions chopped
  • 2 tbsp honey
  • In a pot, heat 1 tbsp vegetable oil and saute garlic, onions and ginger until tender. Add in the remaining ingredients and simmer for 20-30 minutes to let the flavors blend.
  • For the dumplings you will need:
  • 1/2 lb ground chicken
  • 2 tbsp minced garlic, ginger, lemongrass and soy sauce
  • 1 egg yolk
  • 1 tbsp red chili paste
  • 1 green onion chopped finely
  • (you could also add some mushrooms and beansprouts to the mix but I didn't have any)
  • 1 package prepared wonton wrappers
  • Mix first 8 ingredients together. Lay out several wonton wrappers at a time for easier assembly. Drop a small amount of the chicken mixture onto the center of each wonton wrapper. Using a bowl of cold water, dip your finger into the water and then trace the edges of the wonton wrapper to create a "glue". Fold the wonton wrapper into a triangle and press down on all the sides making sure to have a good seal on the filling inside. Take the opposing corners of the triangle and bring together with a pinch to form a shape similar to a tortelloni.
  • Once you have your dumplings assembled, add to a gently simmering broth and allow to cook for about 7 minutes.
  • Serve immediately.
  • **Cooks note: This makes a ton of dumplings! Suggestions: 1)Don't fill all of your dumplings and make more the following day. Deep fry in peanut oil or wok fry and eat in a crispier version. **
