1/2 lb Ground  chicken
1 tbsp minced ginger
1/2 cup Finely Chopped cabbage
2 Minced Green chilies
Salt &  pepper (as per taste)
1 tbsp soy sauce(all purpose)
2 tbsp Minced cilantro
1 tbsp Oil
Wonton wrapper

Dipping sauce:

1 tbsp Red wine vinegar
1 tbsp Apple cider vinegar

Sprinkle some salt to the cabbage and let sit for 30 mins,then use a cheesecloth to gently squeeze all the water.set aside.

Combine all the ingredients with the squeezed cabbage.Mix thoroughly.n

Place  1 heaping tsp of the chicken mixture in the center of the wrapper.

Coat the edges of the wrapper with egg or water and seal the edges forming a crescent shape pressing out any air bubbles.set aside and cover with a damp towel while you make the rest.

When  ready to cook,heat a pan to medium heat,add a tsp of oil(I used peanut oil).Arrange the potstickers/dumplings in a single layer without touching each other.cook uncovered until the bottoms get slightly browned and then add about 4 -5 tbsp of water for around 6 dumplings depending on the size of the pan and cover.(Tip: 1 tbsp of water for each dumpling)let it steam for about 4-5 mins or until all the water evaporates completely.remove from pan and serve with dipping sauce.

For the dipping sauce: combine all the ingredients.Mix thoroughly.

Yields :12-15 potstickers.
