Potstickers are known to be a dumpling that is filled with a protein, usually pork with cabbage and various vegetables with seasonings.

They are served as an appetizer with a dipping sauce.

Don?t let the amount of ingredients scare you away! These are simple ingredients that come together quickly and easily. Chicken potsticker filling makes these potstickers tender on the inside with a crispy outside when fried in vegetable oil. These are sure to please everyone in your family!

  • Ground Chicken:?This can either be from a can or already made chicken and shredded.
  • Carrots: Shredded with a grater or purchase them already shredded.
  • Green Cabbage: Shred with a knife or a grater
  • Garlic Cloves: Peel and mince the garlic cloves.
  • Green Onions:?Chop up as finely as you prefer.
  • Hoisin Sauce:?This is a thick and flavorful sauce.
  • Sesame Oil: Enhances Chinese flavoring and adds to the mixture.
  • Egg: Binds the mixture together
  • Vegetable Oil: Used for Frying
  • Dumpling Wrappers: These can be homemade or store bought.
  • Soy Sauce for dipping

The Recipe?Critic Pro Tip:

When shredding and mixing the potsticker filling together use a food processor for a?quicker way of?combining the filling?together.

How to cook Potstickers:

  1. Mix potsticker filling?together: In a medium bowl combine ground chicken, carrots, green cabbage, garlic, green onions, hoisin sauce, sesame oil and egg. Mix until incorporated. Heat the vegetable oil to medium in a large saucepan.
  2. To make the potstickers:?Lay the dumpling wrapper on a solid surface. Add a heaping teaspoon of the chicken mixture to the center. Wet the outside edges and fold the dumpling together and seal tightly.
  3. Cook the potstickers:?Place the dumplings in the skillet and cook on each side for 2-3 minutes until golden brown. Serve with soy sauce or favorite asian dipping sauce

Tips for making Potstickers:

  • Finely Mince: It is best to cut and shred all of the potstickers filling mixture as finely as you can. This will ensure the stuffing to hold together as well as easier to eat.
  • Potsticker Filling:?Squeeze or drain any excessive amounts of liquid from the potsticker mixture. Tearing can happen if they are too wet on the inside.
  • Overfilling: Try not to over fill the potsticker wrappers. It is best to be able to easily pinch or pleat the sides of the crescent shape. Overfilling can cause the filling to fall apart as they are being cooked.
  • Pleating the potstickers:?Make sure there is no air in the potstickers. This will cause tearing as it cooks. If you are intimidated by the pleating, simply fold into triangles for an easier way of pinching them closed.
  • Overcrowding:?Cook the potstickers several at a time leaving them enough room to move around and expand a bit. Overcrowding of the potstickers will not evenly cook them through.

Variations of Potstickers:

  • Protein: Ground pork, turkey, shrimp, crab or even salmon will work for these potstickers. Just depends on your preference.
  • Seasonings: Mix together rice vinegar, chili garlic sauce, add red pepper flakes for a spicy variation or ginger for different flavorings.
  • Vegetables:?Add in water chestnuts, mushrooms, bell peppers or broccoli chopped up for a more crunchy texture.
  • Dumpling wrappers: Instead of the dumpling wrappers you can use homemade wrappers or even wonton wrappers.
