These fried chicken filled dumplings taste just like they are from a Chinese restaurant.

Recipe Ingredients

  • 1 ½ cups all-purpose flour
  • ½ teaspoon salt
  • 3 tablespoons vegetable oil
  • boiling water
  • 4 ounces ground chicken
  • 4 water chestnuts, drained and finely chopped
  • 3 green onions, finely chopped
  • ½ teaspoon Chinese five-spice powder
  • 1 tablespoon reduced-sodium soy sauce
  • 1 teaspoon white sugar
  • 1 teaspoon sesame oil
  • ½ cup oil for frying

Cooking Directions

  1. 1 Sift flour and salt into a large bowl. Make a well in the center and fill with vegetable oil and approximately 4 tablespoons boiling water. With a wooden spoon, stir until smooth, adding more boiling water as necessary. Knead about 5 minutes, until elastic. Cover and allow to sit 30 minutes.
  2. 2 Divide dough into 12 equal pieces. Roll each piece into a 6 inch circle.
  3. 3 In a medium saucepan over medium high heat, cook ground chicken breast until evenly brown.
  4. 4 Drain chicken and place in a medium bowl with water chestnuts, green onions, Chinese five-spice powder, reduced-sodium soy sauce, white sugar and sesame oil. Thoroughly mix.
  5. 5 Heat oil in a large skillet. Place approximately 1 tablespoon chicken mixture in the center of each dough circle. Fold over mixture and press edges together to seal. In small batches, cook in the hot oil until bottoms are golden brown. Place approximately 1/3 cup water in the pan. Cover and continue cooking approximately 5 minutes, until surfaces of the dumplings are well steamed. Serve immediately.

Chef's Notes

We have determined the nutritional value of oil for frying based on a retention value of 10% after cooking. The exact amount may vary depending on cook time and temperature, ingredient density, and the specific type of oil used.


  1. The dough..was...not good. Buy wonton wrappers and definitely add minced garlic and fresh minced ginger. More or less depending on how much you like it. Take out the five spice and maybe use ground pork instead of chicken.
  2. These were fabuous. My husband and I usually get the fried dumplings at PF Changs and these were very similar.
  3. These are time consuming but definitely worth it! I also steam them in chicken broth and I think it gives it a richer flavor. I don't always have all the ingredients on hand for the filling but it's simple enough to improvise. I've never had any problems with the dough I think using boiling water - Read more ...
  4. This is one of my favorite recipes to use! I absolutely love pot stickers, but have only eaten them at restaurants and at home, by way of using pre-made frozen ones from the store... I was so excited to try this recipe when I found it, and I haven't stopped using it regularly since. I - Read more ...
  5. I did not care for the five spice powder. To me tasting spices I associate with pumpkin pie did not fit with the chicken and soy sauce. Next time I will use soy sauce garlic salt and sesame oil. I did like the simpleness of making the dumplings though.
  6. These were great! I did do some tweaks though. 1st I rolled out the dough so it was thinner,this way it wasn't too doughy. With the filling I didn't cook the chicken first, all i did was mix all the filling ingredients together than filled. Browned the bottom and then steamed with a little chicken - Read more ...
  7. These dumplling were just good enough to eat they are way to doughy the filling is excellent tho I eat just the filling cause its sooo good i reccomend wonton or spring roll wraps instead of making your own dough. The recepie for the dough is very wrong i think.
  8. I cooked this as a sidedish along with some fried rice and they tasted wonderful! My brother especially liked the doughy part.
  9. my friends ate them all before i even got to try one. they are so good. and i got to tell everyone it was a acient chinese secret - cause of my asian decent - _ -
