  1. In a medium bowl, thoroughly mix together all ingredients except for the wonton wrappers and canola oil.
  2. Fill a small bowl with warm water on the side. Lay wonton wrappers down on a clean surface in batches of five. Cover the other wontons with a damp cloth. Brush two edges of the wrapper lightly with water. Place half a rounded teaspoon of the mixture in the centre of the wrapper. Fold over, seal edges, and shape as desired. Set on a sheet pan and cover with a damp cloth. Repeat until all of the filling is used up.
  3. Heat a large sauté pan over medium heat. Brush on some of the oil and add 10-12 potstickers at a time to the pan and cook for 2 minutes or until golden on bottom. Gently add 1/ 3 cup (75 mL) water to the pan, turn the heat down to medium-low, cover with a lid, and cook for another 2-3 minutes until chicken is cooked. Remove wontons and transfer to dish and keep warm. Clean the pan in between batches by pouring in water and allowing the pan to deglaze. Repeat until all the wontons are cooked. Garnish with green onion and serve immediately with a side of sweet chili and soy sauce for dipping.
