DIRECTIONS
To prepare dipping sauce, combine first 7 ingredients. Cover and refrigerate.
To prepare dumplings, combine ground chicken and next 10 ingredients in a large bowl.
Working with 1 won ton wrapper at a time (cover remaining wrappers with a damp towel to keep from drying), spoon about 2 teaspoons of chicken mixture into the center of each wrapper. Moisten edges of wrapper with water; bring 2 opposite corners together to form a triangle and press to seal edges.  Cover loosely with a damp towel to keep them from drying.
Arrange half the dumplings in a single layer (press each dumpling into a crescent shape) in a bamboo steamer lined with cabbage leaves.  Cover and steam for 10 minutes. Remove from steamer and repeat with the other half of the dumplings.  Serve with dipping sauce.
