How to Make Chinese Chicken Wonton Recipe

Cooking Directions


In a large mixing bowl add 10 oz minced chicken breast.


Heat the wok and add 1 to 2 tsp oil and 3 oz minced mushroom, 2 oz minced shrimp 1 tsp minced garlic. Saute on medium heat till the aroma of the ingredients is released. Remove from the wok and transfer to the mixing bowl with the chicken mince.


Add 2 oz chopped water chestnut to the bowl.


Next add 1 tbsp chinese cooking wine, 1 tbsp soy sauce, 1 tsp minced garlic, 1 tbsp cornstarch, 1 large egg white to help keep the mixture moist and soft, 1 tsp sesame oil, ½ tsp chicken powder (optional) and some salt to taste. Mix to combine all the ingredients well. The filling should be a little more salty than usual.


To make the wontons using store bought wrappers, place 1 ½ tsp filling in the centre of the wrapper and bring the edges together and pinch them closed.


Fill a pot with water and bring it to a brisk boil. Add the wontons to the boiling water. This will bring the temperature down a little. Wait till the water starts to boil again, then add ½ cup of cold water to drop the temperature again. Adding cold water ensures that the filling cooks through and the skin will be perfect.


When the water comes back to the boil, the wontons should be floating to the top. This indicates that they are done.


Take the wontons out using a slotted spoon, and place them in a bowl with 1 ½ cups of chicken broth.


Add 2 tsp fried garlic, 2 tsp hot chili oil. Lastly add fresh lettuce and chopped cilantro (coriander) for garnish.
