Chicken and Spring Onion Dumplings

Dumplings are great. I love making them, but sometimes I cant find the wrappers so I end up making them myself. So seeing as I'm making them, I might as well make enough for a couple meals. I freeze a batch for next time and it saves me from having to make them fresh, each time. This batch makes 50 dumplings depending on how big each one is. you can use pre made wonton wrappers, but I prefer my own recipe. It's much better and nothing beats homemade. So let's get started!

1 teaspoon salt

2/3 cup hot water
