Chicken Dumplings | Spice Quarter | 5 Spice Blend



We have been planning a Chinese spice blend for a long time and which blend from Chinese cuisine is more well-known than the 5 spice blend?

There are so many ways to use this blend, it is incredibly versatile. We have kept it simple with these homemade dumplings. Dumplings are very easy to make, you don't need to know any fancy techniques, just fold the wrapper over the mixture and seal the edges

If you do not have a steamer you can just use a frying pan with 1-2 cm of water in it, place the dumplings inside, cover and steam for a few minutes.


  • 250 g chicken breast mince
  • 1/2 tbsp Chinese Five Spice Blend
  • 2 chopped red chilli 
  • 3 chopped spring onions
  • 1 cup shredded mix of carrot & cabbage
  • 1 tbsp soy sauce
  • 1 pack pre made dumpling wrappers
