Chicken Pot Pie Dumplings

Chicken Pot Pie Dumplings
(Makes approximately 15 dumplings)

1/2 chicken breast
1 small red potato
1/2 c. baby carrots
1/4 c. frozen peas
1 shallot, diced
1 tsp. chopped garlic
1/4 cup milk
2 tbsp flour
1 tbsp butter
15 wonton wrappers
2 tsp. olive oil
1 egg white
salt and pepper to taste

1. Saute chicken in a little olive oil over med. heat, turning halfway through cooking time until fully cooked. Remove from pan and cut into small chunks. The pieces need to be very small to fit in the wonton wrappers.
2. Slice the potato and carrots, and then in a medium saucepan parboil until almost tender. Drain and dice into very small pieces.
3. Mix the carrots, chicken, potato, peas, garlic and shallot in a large bowl. Melt the butter in the microwave, then add it to the bowl with the milk and flour. Add a pinch of salt and pepper and then mix until flour and milk thickens.
4. In each wonton wrapper, add a tsp or so of filling. Brush egg white along the edges of the wonton then fold in half and pinch closed. Repeat until you have enough wontons to make a meal for your little gourmand.
5. Heat a little bit of olive oil in a pan, then brown the pot pie bites on both sides. Serve and enjoy!

This was a HUGE success! Neko ate a whopping SEVEN dumplings! My husband and I popped a couple as well and our taste tests definitely left us wanting more. The filling recipe made enough that we were able to put some in the fridge and assemble more dumplings the next day for her lunch.
