Healthy Chicken Pot Sticker Hearts

½ lb ground chicken breast

¾ cup shredded and chopped purple cabbage

2 green onions chopped

½ red bell pepper finely chopped

2 cloves garlic minced

¼ teaspoon fresh ginger

1/8 cup soy sauce

fresh ground pepper to taste

Won ton wrappers

Heart shaped cookie cutter

sesame oil

Combine the first 8 ingredients in a bowl. Use the heart cookie cutter to cut 20 heart shapes out of the won ton wrappers. Spoon a small amount of filling into the center of 10 hearts. Wet the edges of each heart with water and place one won ton heart on top of a wrapper with the filling. Seal the edges, repeat until all are sealed. Pour a tablespoon of sesame oil into a medium sauté pan and heat over medium. Place pot sticker in the sauté pan and cook for 2 minutes or until golden brown, turn over and cook for an additional 2 minutes (I used a meat thermometer to make sure the chicken was cooked through). Remove and place onto paper towel lined plate. Serve with soy sauce or Thai chili sauce.
