Here's how to make wontons 101.  Once you prepare the filling, it is so easy to make.  Today's filling is ground chicken with Chinese cabbage (stay tuned for the filling recipe in the near future.  Come back and visit often!)  You can also use ground pork with shrimps or shrimps alone.

These deliciously, velvety meat-dough combo hit the spot every time especially in a cold winter's day.  You can also eat these deliciously wrapped wontons anytime, as breakfast, lunch, dinner or even as midnight snack.  When dipped in soy sauce, vinegar, hot sauce variations, they will further tantalize your taste buds.
