Chinese New Year is two weeks away. For many Chinese people, dumplings are must-have for the festivities.
On Chinese New Year’s eve, family members would gather around in the kitchen and make dumplings for the dinner. It’s a tradition.
There are many variations of the filling but the most popular ones are ground pork and vegetables. I often get requests for a Chicken Dumplings as most people eat chicken, so here it is, my Chicken Dumplings recipe that everyone can enjoy.
It’s very crucial that the dumpling filling is moist and juicy, so you want to choose boneless and skinless chicken thighs instead of chicken breast.
Chicken thighs is fattier, which is perfect as a filling. The other key ingredient is napa cabbage.
For this recipe, I did a two-step process of boiling and then pan-frying. I found this two-step method the best as the dumplings turn out to be very crispy on the outside, but totally juicy inside.
For dumpling wrapper, I made the wrapper from scratch but store-bought wrappers work equally well. Enjoy!
