Instead of a traditional wonton wrapper, these Chicken Cabbage Dumplings with Sweet Chile Dipping Sauce are enrobed in tender cabbage leaves, which give them added flavor, texture, and health. The chicken filling is bursting with flavor from fish sauce, texture from water chestnuts, and brightness from lime. Unexpected, indeed! In class, we’ll also make a sweet chili dipping sauce from scratch.
Here’s what to have on hand to get ready for class.The amount will make enough dumplings to fill your bellies AND to share with your admiring family.
10-12 Napa cabbage leaves
1 pound boneless skinless chicken thigh, trimmed of excess fat (purchase ground chicken if you do not have a food processor)*
2 cloves peeled garlic
a thumb-sized piece of ginger, peeled
½ cup water chestnuts
1 small bunch of cilantro
fish sauce (or salt if you’re scared of fish sauce…but don’t be a scaredy-pants: it’s awesome!)
sweet chile sauce (it’s bright red with flecks of chili and has a spicy, sweet, and vinegary taste. Many stores carry it, Trader Joe’s has a nice one)
grapeseed or other neutral oil
fresh chili (red or green jalapeno, serrano, or Thai chilies)
* If you wish to make a vegetarian version, you’ll need about 12 ounces of fresh shiitakes in place of the chicken. Prior to class, remove and discard the mushroom stems. Cut mushrooms into small cubes. Saute them until they’re just soft in a little bit of grapeseed oil (or butter). Let them cool to room temperature before class.
Food processor (or purchase ground chicken and get ready to chop in class!)
Steaming basket that fits into a pot with a lid
cutting board and knife
