Ingredients

  • 1 Pound ground chicken
  • 2 medium apples, peeled, cored, and diced
  • 1 onion, finely chopped
  • 1/4 Cup cilantro, finely chopped (optional)
  • 1 Tablespoon apple juice
  • 1/2 Teaspoon fresh ginger, grated
  • Pinch of salt
  • Pinch of pepper
  • 50 wonton wrappers
  • 1 egg
  • 2 Tablespoons water

Directions

Combine the chicken, apples, onion, cilantro, apple juice, ginger, salt, and pepper in a bowl, mix well to combine. Lay the wonton wrapper on a lightly floured surface. Add a small spoonful of the filling. Beat the egg with the water to make an egg wash. Brush the eggs of the wrapper with the egg wash, and bring the edges of the wrapper together with little folds to securely seal the dumplings. There should be 3 to 5 pleats in your dumpling. Bring a pot of water to a boil. Add your dumplings and simmer for about 3 minutes. The dumplings should float to the top when done. Serve with soy sauce.

Chicken Shopping Tip

Buy whole chickens and ask the butcher to quarter them for you. You will save an average of $5 per pound, or more.

Chicken Cooking Tip

Allow meat to rest for at least ten minutes before slicing into it; otherwise, the juices will leak out.

Chicken Wine Pairing

Pinot noir, gamay, merlot, zinfandel, carménère, pinotage, or grenache with grilled, roasted, or other simply cooked chicken; chardonnay, pinot gris/grigio, pinot blanc, or chenin blanc with chicken in cream or light tomato sauce or with chicken crêpes or croquettes; sauvignon blanc or sémillon with fried chicken; viognier with spiced chicken dishes.
