   Cut eight 8 inch squares of parchment paper.
   
   INGREDIENTS
   
   Cut chicken into thin, narrow strips, about 3 inches long.  Combine soy
   sauce, ginger juice and sugar in large bowl; stir in chicken, let stand 30
   minutes.
   
   Meanwhile, pour boiling water over bean sprouts; let stand one minute.
   Drain; cool under cold water and drain well.
   
   Thoroughly toss chicken mixture with bean sprouts, green onions and
   walnuts.
   
   Place about 1/2 cupful of chicken mixture in center of each parchment
   square.  Fold bottom point of parchment over filling; crease just below
   filling and fold point over and under filling.  Fold side points over
   filling, overlapping slightly.  Crease paper to hold folds. Fold remaining
   corner down so point extends below bottom of bundle; tuck this point
   between folded sides.  Crease paper to hold folds. Repeat with remaining
   parchment squares. (Ends up looking like small envelope, with flap tucked
   under bundle)
   
   Place bundles seam side down, in single layer on steamer rack.  Set rack in
   large pot or wok of boiling water.  (Do not let water level reach the
   bundles)  Cover and steam about 7 minutes or until chicken is tender. Serve
   immediately
