Chicken and Shrimp Dumplings with Soy Dipping Sauce
Serves 6

Soy Dipping Sauce:
1/2 cup soy sauce
2 tablespoons rice vinegar
2 tablespoons sweet hot chile sauce
2 slices peeled fresh ginger
24 wonton wrappers
1 tablespoon vegetable oil
1/2 cup chicken stock
1/4 cup water

4 ounces ground chicken
6 medium shrimp, peeled and minced
2 cloves garlic, chopped
2 teaspoons peeled, chopped fresh ginger
1 green onion, chopped
2 teaspoons chopped fresh basil
1 tablespoon sweet hot chile sauce
Soy sauce

To prepare the sauce, put all the ingredients in a small saucepan and bring to a boil. Remove the pan from the heat and set aside.

To prepare the filling, combine the chicken and shrimp in a small bowl and mix well. Add the ginger, garlic, green onion, basil, and chile sauce, mix well, and season to taste with soy sauce.

Lay a wonton wrapper on a work surface. Place 1 heaping teaspoon of the filling in the center of the wrapper. Bring the sides of the wrapper up around the filling to a point at the top, pleating the sides. Repeat with the remaining wrappers and filling.

In a large, nonstick saute pan, add the oil and heat over high heat until very hot. Gently place the dumplings in the pan and cook until browned, about 2 minutes. Add the chicken stock and water and steam for about 2 minutes, or until tender. Remove the dumplings from the pan and serve hot with the dipping sauce.
