Ravioli With Chicken

Boiled Chinese Dumplings with Chicken and Shrimp

Today’s dumplings have a filling made with chicken and prawns and as cooking I chose to make them boiled, because I had not yet prepared them in this way and I must say that they are very good and light, I could eat them by the load, I’m not kidding!

For the pasta I used a dough based only on flour, instead of the Dougt For Dumpling that I usually use, which also contains starch. The result is really excellent and above all elastic and resistant.

The filling is more delicate than the Guotie. In addition to the chicken and shrimp, I added some Shiitake mushrooms to make the filling tastier. To serve them I used the green part of the spring onion and the Spicy Chinese Oil which is not only a spicy oil, but also very aromatic thanks to the various spices including sichuan pepper and I must say that they turned out to be delicious! As usual, if you don’t like spicy, you can enjoy them with soy sauce with ginger cut into very thin strips and a drop of sesame oil, or with Chinese vinegar or create your own combination.

Between the dough and the filling I managed to prepare about sixty Boiled Chinese Dumplings With Chicken And Shrimp which should be enough for at least 5 portions if you eat only those, but I leave you to decide since we have safely brushed all three of them😅!

  • Once all the water has been incorporated, knead for about ten minutes or until you get a homogeneous mixture and put it to rest covered with a cloth or under a bowl.

Preparation Of The Filling

  • Clean the shrimp from their shells and intestines, and chop them with a knife, leaving some pieces a little thicker.
  • Soak the dried Shiitake mushrooms in 60 ml of hot water, drain them softly without throwing away the soaking water and chop them finely.

  • Take the dough and divide it into 60 parts, preferably all of the same weight and then roll them out with a rolling pin forming discs of about 8 cm. Alternatively, you can roll out a part of the dough and slice it with a pastry cutter or a glass.
  • Once the filling is ready, take a disc of dough and start forming the dumplings. Place 1 tsp/1 tsp and ½ of the filling in the center, moisten one side of the disc of dough with water then proceed to close them as you prefer. Make sure they are tightly closed.


  • Put to heat a pot with plenty of water. Once it comes to a boil, add the ravioli (a little at a time) and cook them for 2 – 3 minutes. Then drain them.
  • Serve hot with Chinese spicy oil.
