Chicken Creel-Shaped Dumplings

Getting reviews...
These dumplings freeze very well, so making a large batch is well worth the time. With a little practice, they will shape up in no time at all, and they are so easy that children can help. A dozen or so make a great lunch.

Ingredients

Directions

Special equipment:
steamer basket
  1. Coarsely chop the water chestnuts and cilantro leaves in a processor. Add the ground chicken. Stir in the hoisin, soy sauce, sesame oil and cornstarch. Sprinkle with salt and pepper.
  2. Place 1 teaspoon of filling in the center of a dumpling skin. Dampen the edge with water. Fold over and press to seal. Pleat or fold as desired. Grease a flat plate with vegetable oil and place the finished dumplings on the plate to oil the bottoms. Place about 1/3 of the dumplings in each of three steamer baskets, arranging in the baskets in a single layer without touching. Stack the steamer baskets and steam the dumplings until firm, about 10 minutes.
