ORIENTAL CHICKEN WONTONS

8 oz. ground raw chicken
1/2 c. shredded carrots
1/4 c. finely chopped celery or water chestnuts
1 tbsp. soy sauce
1 tbsp. dry sherry
2 tsp. cornstarch
2 tsp. grated gingerroot
1/2 (16 oz.) pkg. wonton wrappers
2 tbsp. margarine or butter, melted
Plum or Sweet & Sour Sauce

Filling: In a medium skillet cook and stir ground chicken until no pink remains; drain. Stir in carrots, celery or waterchestnuts, soy sauce, sherry, cornstarch and gingerroot; mix well. Spoon 1 rounded teaspoon of the filling atop a wonton wrapper, lightly brush edges with water. To shape each wonton, carefully bring 2 opposite points of the square wrapper up over the filling and pinch together in the center. Carefully bring the 2 remaining opposite points to the center and pinch together. Pinch together edges to seal. Place wontons on a greased baking sheet. Brush the wontons with melted
margarine or butter. Bake in a 375 degree oven for 8-10 minutes or until lightly brown and crisp. Serve with Plum or Sweet & Sour Sauce. Makes about 25 appetizer servings.
