Chicken & Chive Dumplings

The chefs at Royal China reveal their exclusive recipe for the most authentic Chicken & Chive Dumplings.


    Serves 4

    Filling Ingredients:

    300g Ground Chicken

    200g Shelled fresh shrimps

    ½ a bunch of finely chopped Chinese garlic chives

    1 Garlic clove, crushed

    1 tbsp Chinese Shao Shing wine

    1 tbsp Light soy sauce

    ½ tsp Freshly grated ginger

    ½ tsp Ground dried shrimp

    1 pinch Sugar

    1 ½ tsp Sesame oil

    1 tbsp Cornflour

    1 tsp Salt

    ½ tsp Ground white pepper

    Dumpling ingredients:

    Whole chives

    4 Shu-mei wrappers (Wonton Skin)

    Preparation method: 


    1. Whip by hand all of the filling ingredients until they are fully combined and hold together.
    2. Place a dollop of the filling in the centre of each wrapper and bring up the corners to form a little "money bag." Leave the top open so that you can see some of the filling.
    3. Blanch the whole chives in very hot water tap water. Then tie a chive around the neck of each dumpling so that it looks like it is wearing a little green belt.
    4. Steam the dumplings in an oiled bamboo steamer for 15 minutes, in a steaming wok.
    5. Serve hot with sweet chilli sauce.
