Easy Leftover Chicken and Vegetable Dumplings
I learned how to make dumplings in China when I traveled there in 2016. I’ve adapted the recipe to make these Easy Leftover Chicken Dumplings as a way to use up some of the leftover chicken and vegetables that might be in your fridge. Let’s face it, we all have leftover chicken and vegetables in our refrigerators!
I give suggestions to add mushrooms and spinach in my Easy Leftover Chicken Dumplings, but the truth is you can add pretty much any vegetables (like shredded carrots, cabbage, broccoli, etc.) or leftover meats that you like. I’ve even used leftover takeout I had lying around like leftover jerk pork and they tasted so good! You can even skip the meat and make these vegetarian dumplings too! These are great because literally anything goes!
If you want to use these for your kids lunches, which I highly recommend, you can boil them the night before, and sauté a few in the morning and add them to a thermos. Your kids will LOVE these, trust me!
