How to Make a Won ton

Wontons are the easiest little goody. You can put a variety of things in them, just like the beloved pot sticker. In this little cooking adventure
I decided to put ground chicken in mine (since it was on sale). I added celery, white onion, soy sauce, sweet and sour sauce, panko, fresh ginger and an egg,
Take your won ton wrappers and lay them out on a pan or a large plate. Add a teaspoon of filling to the center of the won ton and fold the won ton in half.
Fold the won ton and wet the edges. Seal to close.
Then you fold the won ton in half again by bringing the ends together.
Here is the won ton folded in half  and you can see it rounded. Do not pull to tightly on them. Take the ends and wet them and seal them together so the won ton keeps its shape.
Here are a bunch of wont tons all folded. 

Then you can cook them in the manner which you desire. Whether you boil them, saute them or fry them up like I did in vegetable oil

And if you have any extra filling leftover. Feel free to make some little meat balls.
