“This is a great recipe that can work as an appetizer or main course. In the past, I've used Pork, but I don't see why using ground chicken couldn't work either. The sauce is a perfect compliment. If you like dumplings from your favorite asian restaurant, you'll enjoy these...and don't forget the dipping sauce! This is tried and true with many a compliment. Adapted from a Foodtv recipe.”
