Part of the joys of cooking is having the ability to try new foods and recipes. Sometimes it is beneficial to branch out with new types of cuisines. One of my favorites is Asian. If you have ever been to restaurants for Asian food then you know that traditional dishes can be pricey and often times full of unnecessary sodium. I’m here to tell you that it doesn’t always have to be that way. You can create delicious and healthy Asian meals at home for half the cost. Below, you will find a step-by-step guide for a recipe I created on how to prepare delicious Chicken Potstickers.
Background: Chinese dumplings are commonly eaten in East Asia and are most popular during Chinese New Year. They typically consist of ground meat and/or vegetable filling wrapped into a thinly rolled piece of dough then sealed with the edges pressed or crimped together.
Recipe for Potstickers
2 tbsp Ginger minced
¼ – ½ cup of red onion minced
3-4 green onions – 1/8” chop
1 lb ground chicken
4-5 garlic cloves minced
One package of Gyoza/Potsticker wrappers
Recipe for Sauce
½ cup Soy Sauce
¼ cup Rice Vinegar
1 tbsp garlic minced
1 tbsp ginger minced
1 green onion chopped
Sugar to taste
2-3 more green onions for garnish
Step 1: Prep your ingredients. It’s easier to chop and mince everything all at once. Start by peeling and mincing your garlic, about 8 cloves altogether. Next, peel and mince fresh ginger. Then, chop the green onions, about 6 of them. Lastly, mince about half a red onion. After you have done all this you can portion it out. In all honesty you don’t have to break out a measuring cup or spoon just guess when portioning.
Step 2: Get a gallon sized Ziploc bag and put in ¾ of the garlic and ginger you minced. Then, add in all the red onion and ¾ of the chopped green onion. Add the pound of ground chicken into the bag and mix everything together. You can put the remaining green onion, garlic, and ginger into a medium bowl.
Step 3: Prepare your kitchen counter if you want to. I don’t like putting anything directly on the counter even if it is clean. You need a lot of space so I line my countertop with saran wrap. Lay out the potsticker wrappers on the counter. Take an egg and whisk it in a small bowl. After it is stirred completely paint the outside edge of each potsitcker wrapper. This recipe will make about 35 potstickers.
