Steamy Chicken and Veggie Dumplings

Healthy Fact of the Day

These chicken and veggie dumplings are a nutritious option, packed with lean protein from the chicken and essential vitamins and minerals from the cabbage, carrots, and green onions. Steaming the dumplings also helps retain more nutrients compared to frying.



For the Dumplings:

  • 1 lb ground chicken
  • 1 cup finely shredded cabbage
  • 1 carrot, grated
  • 2 green onions, thinly sliced
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1 tablespoon soy sauce
  • 1 teaspoon sesame oil
  • 1 package round dumpling wrappers (about 24 wrappers)


For the Dipping Sauce:

  • 1/4 cup soy sauce
  • 2 tablespoons rice vinegar
  • 1 teaspoon sesame oil
  • 1 teaspoon grated ginger
  • 1 green onion, thinly sliced





  1. In a large bowl, mix together the ground chicken, shredded cabbage, grated carrot, green onions, garlic, soy sauce, and sesame oil until well combined.

  2. To assemble the dumplings, place a round dumpling wrapper on a flat surface. Scoop about 1 tablespoon of the chicken filling into the center of the wrapper.

  3. Using your finger, lightly wet the edges of the dumpling wrapper with water. Fold the wrapper in half to form a semi-circle, and crimp the edges with a fork to seal.

  4. Place the assembled dumplings on a lightly floured surface or parchment paper while you finish wrapping the rest.

  5. In a large pot or steamer, bring 2-3 inches of water to a boil. Place a steamer basket or bamboo steamer liner inside.

  6. Arrange the dumplings in a single layer in the steamer basket, making sure they don’t touch each other. Cover with a lid.

  7. Steam the dumplings for 8-10 minutes, or until the dumplings are cooked through and the filling is hot.

  8. While the dumplings are steaming, make the dipping sauce by mixing together the soy sauce, rice vinegar, sesame oil, grated ginger, and sliced green onion.

  9. Carefully remove the steamed dumplings from the steamer basket and serve hot with the dipping sauce on the side.

Enjoy these flavorful and delightful steamed dumplings as a tasty and healthy appetizer or light meal!
