  • 25
    wonton wrappers, defrosted
  • 300
    chicken breast fillets
  • 1/2
    finely chopped spring onion
  • 5
    piece of ginger, grated
  • 2
    soy sauce
  • 1
    sesame oil
  • 2
  • sea salt and white pepper
  • 1
    egg white
  • Soy sauce for dipping


Place the wonton wrappers on a surface, cover with a damp cloth. To make the mince, cube chicken breasts and blitz in a food processor.

Place the minced chicken, spring onion, ginger, soy sauce and sesame oil in a bowl. Stir to combine, then add cream and seasoning and stir thoroughly to incorporate.

Place a tablespoon of the mixture in the centre of the wrapper. (You can form them into little balls, if you like.)

Brush the edges of the wrapper with egg white; bring together to form a parcel.

Place a square of baking paper in a bamboo steamer, add the dim sums; place steamer over a pot of simmering water and steam, uncovered, for 10 minutes or until the dim sums are cooked. Serve hot with soy sauce or a dipping sauce of your choice.
