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.

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

How to Make Chicken Dim Sum

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.
