  1. In a bowl combined ground chicken, soy sauce, scallions, garlic, and ginger and mix well.
  2. To make each dumpling, place about 2 teaspoons of ground chicken in the center of each wrapper. When ready to shape, brush two of the edges with water. Fold the dry sides onto the wet sides to form a triangle. Press with your fingers to make sure they are closed.
  3. Place the shaped dumplings onto a baking sheet. Once all the filling and wrappers are used, place the dumplings in the freezer until cold and reserve until needed. To cook, boil in broth or water until cooked through, about five minutes.
