We got to visit a dim sum restaurant on a trip to NYC recently, and I fell in love with this stuff! It's basically a steamed dumpling with meat and veggies inside. This particular one is called Chicken Shu Mai. Pretty easy to make. If you don't have a steamer handy, you could also use egg roll wrappers and bake or fry these.

Prep:

20 Min

Cook:

15 Min

Ingredients

1 lb
ground chicken (or substitute meat of your choice)
1/2 c
mushrooms, finely chopped
1/2 c
green onions, finely chopped
1/2 c
carrots, finely chopped
2 Tbsp
soy sauce
2 Tbsp
sugar
1 Tbsp
fresh ginger, finely chopped
1 Tbsp
cornstarch
1/4 tsp
ground pepper
1 pkg
wonton wrappers

Directions Step-By-Step

1
Mix all ingredients in bowl.
2
Place about 1 tablespoon of meat mixture on each wonton wrapper, and bring all corners together in center. See photo above. It's easier to fold these with clean, dry hands.
3
Place dim sum in a bamboo steamer or whatever you have, making sure to space them a little bit apart or they will stick together.
4
Steam for about 15 minutes or until meat is cooked through. Serve with extra soy sauce for dipping if you like.
