Cook:
30 Min
Method:
Deep Fry

Ingredients

2 lb
ground chicken
4 Tbsp
ginger, finely chopped
1 bunch
green onions
1 jar(s)
hoisin sauce
1 can(s)
water chestnuts, finely chopped
2 c
shredded cabbage
2 Tbsp
soy sauce
2 tsp
garlic powder
2 pkg
wonton wrappers
salt and pepper to taste
vegetable oil for frying

Step-By-Step

1In a skillet cook chicken through if you are using ground chcken. I have also poached 2 pounds of chicken breasts and then chopped it finely in the food processor and you will ge the desired texture that way.

2Place cooked ground chicken in a large mixing bowl. Add the remaining ingredients, except for wonton wrappers. Mix thoroughly. At this time check for flavor: saltiness, soy sauce, garlic powder, and pepper. Adjust depending on your taste.

3Place a tablespoon of mixture in the middle of a wonton wrapper.

4Wet fingertips and run around the edges of wonton to moisten. Pull up corners to the center and squeeze together, creating a small pouch or purse. Set aside on a cookie sheet lined with parchment or cornstarch so pouches won't stick.Continue this process until all misture has been put into wontons.

5Heat oil in a deep pot, enough oil to immerse pouches. Place about 5 or 6 pouches and hot oil. Cook until wonton turns golden brown. Continue until all pouches are fried. Serve with sweet and sour sauce. I have a sweet and sour sauce recipe in my box.
