Fresh Salad and Chicken Dumplings

This meals rates as one of my easiest to date.

This fresh salad and chicken dumplings take the cake as a convenient ‘fast food’ option that uses pre-made ingredients and minimal time. Let’s not forget that they are nutritious as well!

My kids love these and it’s easy to mix around the ingredients to find a unique taste that suits your family. Use different meats, mix up your veggies and swap around your flavours. The kids love chipping to help roll them also.

How to make

  1. Brown the chicken breast in a frying pan and then transfer to a food processor with salad mix and process slightly (so no bulky bits)
  2. Take wrappers out of the fridge and one by one, take a teaspoon of the chicken mixture and place it in the middle of the wrapper. Then fold over the other half of the wrapper and press down on the edges with your fingertips to form a seal. If you could visualize a pippy shell closing. If there are any gaps then the filling will escape while boiling.
  3. Boil a large saucepan of water. Once at boiling point- transfer batches to the boiling water. Be careful not to overcrowd or this will cause them to stick together.
  4. Once the dumplings rise to the top and begin to turn clear then they are ready to remove from the water. This takes less than a minute.
  5. Place the dumplings on a plate, being careful to not allow them to touch each other or they will stick and tear.
  6. Serve immediately with organic tamari sauce and a side salad.
