  • 2 skinless, boneless chicken breast halves, minced

  • 1 egg

  • 1 green onion, minced

  • 1 ½ tablespoons soy sauce

  • 1 tablespoon Asian (toasted) sesame oil

  • 1 tablespoon vegetable oil

  • ¼ teaspoon salt

  • 50 wonton wrappers

  • 2 cups cold water


  1. Mix chicken, egg, green onion, soy sauce, sesame oil, vegetable oil, and salt in a large bowl until evenly combined.

  2. Scoop about 1 teaspoon chicken mixture and place into the center of a wonton wrapper. Moisten 2 adjacent edges of the wrapper with water and fold into a triangle. Connect the two lower points of the wrapper and moisten to seal and make a hat shape. Repeat with remaining chicken and wonton wrappers.

  3. Bring a large pot of water to boil. Stir wontons into boiling water. Add 1/2 cup cold water and allow water to return to a boil. Repeat boiling with another 1/2 cup cold water. Wontons are ready when chicken is no longer pink in the center, about 5 minutes. Drain.
