Recipe Ingredients:

  • 1 cups baby spinach, rinsed and chopped
  • 1 teaspoon Asian sesame oil
  • 1 teaspoon sweet rice vinegar
  • 1/4 teaspoon kosher salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon sugar
  • Pinch of freshly ground white pepper (you can also swap out black pepper)
  • 1/4 pound ground chicken
  • 1 small scallion, minced
  • 3/4 teaspoon minced fresh ginger
  • 30 thin wonton wrappers
  • 1 egg yolk
  • 5 cups water

Recipe Steps:

  • In a large bowl, combine chicken, spinach, vinegar, sesame oil, salt, sugar, pepper, ginger, and scallions. Blend well, and let stand for 15 minutes.
  • Place about one teaspoon of the filling at the center of each wonton skin. Moisten all 4 edges of wonton wrapper with egg yolk, then pull the top corner down to the bottom, folding the wrapper over the filling to make a triangle. Press edges firmly to make a seal. Bring left and right corners together above the filling. Overlap the tips of these corners, moisten with egg yolk and press together. Continue until all wrappers are used.
  • Bring the water to a rolling boil in a large pot. Gently drop the wontons into the water. The wontons are cooked once they float to the top and you boil the dumplings for an additional 2-3 minutes. Drain and serve in individual bowls. Garnish with chopped scallions, and serve. You can serve this with a ginger dipping sauce
