chicken kreplach


this can be made with the chicken you use to make chicken soup or any cooked chicken. i use won ton wrappers since they are easily available and it saves me from making the dough

2 cups cooked chicken
2 carrots chopped
1 onion diced
2 cloves garlic
5 tbsp schmaltz or vegetable oil divided
1 package won ton wrappers

depending on your preference either saute or carmelize the onion in 3 tbsp of the schmaltz or oil. to carmelize cook the onions over medium heat for about an hour until they are browned to your liking,stiring every 15 minutes.

in a food processor add the chicken,carrots,coked onions,remaining oil/schmatlz and garlic.
process until its got a consistency like tuna salad (not pureed)

place a won ton wrapper on a plate. add a scant tbsp of the chicken mixture. fold into a triangle sealing the edges with a finger dipped in warm water

continue with each kreplach

to cook boil in either chicken soup or salted water for about 2 minutes
