This recipe was really good. I cut down on the sesame oil from prior experience with it. (it is very strong flavored) Will definitley make it again...very easy. Used ground chicken....cause that's what i had on hand, came out great! Thanks for the recipe!

Perfecto. These have to be some of the best dumpling/wontons I have ever had. I made a triple batch to freeze the extras so I can always have some on hand to make at a moment's notice. I prefer to bake mine at 425 for 15 mintues, turning over halfway through cooking. Thanks so much for coming up with this recipe!

These Dumplings are irrestible and are just like ones I had in Cantonese Style Chinese Restaurant and are Excellent, These would even be better served with a spicey soy sauce for dipping. These were Awsome Vivian!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
