Pot stickers


This is our new favorite recipe. I'll post a must more detailed version on my recipe blog tomorrow. Go check it out! *grins*

Pot Stickers

  • 1 package wonton wrappers (about 50ct) either circle or square
  • 1 bag coleslaw mix
  • 1 lb ground chicken
  • 2 t ginger
  • 2 stalks green onions--finely chopped
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 2-3 tbsp soy sauce
  • 1 tsp sesame oil

Mix all the ingredients together (except for the wrappers). Spoon a TINY bit(about a tbsp or less) into the middle of one wrapper (be careful, they stick together in sets of two). Seal the edges with water. The back of the wonton wrappers have a good description on how to fold these up.

To cook, heat about 2-3 Tbsp oil in a pan. After it's HOT, add the pot-stickers, but don't crowd the pan. Let them brown on the bottom for a minute, then put the lid on it. Leave a tiny opening so you can pour some water over them. Hot oil and water do NOT play well together. Remember that kids! :) You'll want to have enough water to cover the pot-stickers about 1/3 of the way. Cover them, and let the cook until the water's gone. You'll hear a difference in the sizzle. Flip them over and cook until the other side's crispy.

We're still trying to find a good sauce to dip these in. We had soy sauce tonight, but using ground chicken makes these a little dry inside. The soy sauce was good, but salty.

I forgot to mention. This made about 75 total--we ate about 20 between the of us, and they freeze great!! :)
