  • 1 cup warm water
  • ½ teaspoon sesame oil
  • 1 teaspoon soy sauce

  • 1/8 teaspoon ground pepper
  • 2 stalks green onions (thinly sliced)
  • ½ pound ground chicken
  • 1 clove garlic (diced)
  • Soy sauce

Equipment

  • 4-inch round cookie cutter

Let's get started!

  1. In a medium bowl, use a spatula to mix water and flour until a dough forms.
  2. Knead the dough with your hands for about 3 to 5 minutes until soft. Place it in a small mixing bowl and lay a paper towel on top of it to prevent a skin from forming.
  3. In a small bowl, combine chicken, green onions, garlic, salt, soy sauce, pepper, and sesame oil and then refrigerate.
  4. Roll the dough out to about 1/8 inch thick. Use a cookie cutter to cut out circles and then place them on a parchment-lined baking tray. Stack layers of circles on top of one another with parchment paper in between each layer (PICTURE at 3:45)
  5. Scoop a tablespoon of chicken filling in the center of each dough circle.
  6. Seal the dumplings with the twist and pinch technique (PICTURE at 4:25).
  7. Line the inside of the steamer with cabbage leaves and then fill it with dumplings.
  8. Place the steamer on top of a pot of boiling water with a steamer ring. Steam for about 7 minutes.
  9. In a sauce bowl, combine soy sauce, sesame oil, salt, and pepper to taste. Whisk together and make any changes you desire.
  10. TaDa! The Kung Fu Panda Dumplings are finished and ready to kick up some flavor!
