Steamed chicken dumplings are that healthy snack that everyone wishes for, especially those who can’t serve oily and fried snacks to their kids. The dumplings we are about to make today are full of luscious chicken filling. When made in abundance, the dumpling can also be stored in your freezer easily and steam whenever you desire. The dough of the dumplings is simple and easy to make, as it is made with nothing but flour, salt, and water.
When the dough gets done, half of your job is already done. The rest simple mixing of all the right ingredients for the filling. Here we have kept it all basic with just a few kitchen seasonings, but you can always experiment with some additional ingredients to add new flavors to the filling according to your kid's choice. You can also try some finely chopped vegetables to add to the filling then stuff them inside the dumplings.
