Spicy sweats are better.

Spice, spice baby muthafuckas. 

Get your nose to run a little with this recipe, or swap out that workout for some spicy sweats. You do you, boo. 



  • 1 pound lean chicken

  • 1/2 tsp onion powder

  • 1/2 tsp white pepper

  • 1 tbsp soy sauce

  • 1 egg

  • 2 tbsp chopped cilantro

  • 1 tbsp shao xing cooking wine (optional)

  • Salt and pepper to taste

  • 1/2 tsp sesame oil

  • 1 pack dumpling wrappers (Square-shaped wrappers used for this particular style)




  • 1 tbsp spicy bean paste

  • 1.5 tbsp chili oil

  • 1/2 tsp sesame oil

  • 1 tbsp black rice vinegar

  • pinch of white pepper

  1. Create the filling: Blend all wonton filling ingredients together.

  2. Folding each wonton: Place a scoop (about 1 tbsp) of filling in the wrapper and add a piece of shrimp in. Next, wet the inner edges of the wrapper with water and bring the corner to the opposite side to form a triangle and crease. Wet the corner of one of the triangle points and fold it over, then do the same with the opposite point.

  3. In a pot, get your water up to a rolling boil. Drop each wonton in individually (so that they don't stick together) and boil for 5-6 minutes. The wrappers should be translucent at the edges, but not breaking apart.

  4. Get saucy. Mix all the sauce ingredients together, give it a good stir and top with chopped scallions.

  5. Serve an enjoy, maybe grab a tissue in case you get the spicy sweats ;)
