Directions

How to Make Steamed Chicken Dumplings Recipe

STEP 01

Cut the chicken thighs roughly into pieces and place them in a food processor. Pulse a few times in the food processor, until you've got ground chicken that resembles sausage meat. You can also pass the meat through a meat grinder, if you own one. Skip this step if you're using already ground chicken.

STEP 02

Place the ground chicken in a large bowl, along with all the additions for the filling (sesame oil, light and dark soy sauce, ginger, scallions, salt, honey, pepper).

STEP 03

Stir the chicken filling in only one direction (either clockwise or anti-clockwise) until everything is well mixed, and the filling looks sticky. I use chopsticks, but you can also use a spoon or a fork.

STEP 04

To check if the filling is seasoned enough – heat a small non-stick pan over medium high heat. Take a small portion of the filling (a chunk about 1 cm in diameter) and flatten it slightly. Cook this in the hot pan (both sides, until cooked through) and taste. If it needs more salt, add it to the filling and mix through.

STEP 05

Place a little of the filling in the middle of one dumpling wrapper. This amount depends on the size of your dumpling wrapper. With my homemade dumpling wrappers, I add about a generous tablespoon of filling per dumpling.

STEP 06

Fold the wrapper over and seal the edge of the wrapper in the middle. With homemade wrappers, you will not need to use water to seal the wrapper, but make sure to firmly press the wrapper to seal. If you're using store-bought dumpling wrappers, you will need to moisten the edge of the wrapper on one side with water, and then fold it over and pinch in the middle to seal it.

STEP 07

The simple fold and seal method simply involves sealing the edges, making sure there is very little to no air inside the dumpling.

STEP 08

When the water is boiling, transfer the covered bamboo steamer onto the pot / wok, and let it steam for about 10 minutes. Do not be tempted to open the steamer during this time.

STEP 09

If you haven't made dumplings before, and you have larger dumplings – you might not be sure if your dumplings are cooked through after 10 minutes. So cut the first dumpling to check if it's cooked through. If not, let them steam for a couple of minutes longer.

STEP 10

If you're making another batch of steamed dumplings, make sure to top up the water in the pot / wok and allow it to come to a boil.

STEP 11

Once the dumplings are steamed, serve them warm with a dipping sauce.
