My son loves Asian food, so I decided to surprise him last night by making these sesame chicken potstickers inspired by a recipe I found on Damn Delicious and the vegetable ramen stir fry for dinner. He loved these potstickers and so did the rest of us. I REALLY loved them too and wished I had made a double batch. Next time!
How to Make Sesame Chicken Potstickers
Make the potsticker dipping sauce; set aside for flavors to mingle. Click here for the recipe.
Add ground chicken, mushrooms, green onions, garlic, sesame oil, soy sauce, rice vinegar, fresh ginger, and white pepper to a food processor. Pulse mixer until thoroughly combined.
Spread out the potsticker wraps and scoop a small teaspoon full of filling onto the center of each wrap. Wet the top of each potsticker wrap with a baster brush dipped in water.
Fold the potsticker to make a moon shape and pinch shut with 4 to 5 pleats along the side. Really make sure they are sealed, so the filling doesn’t fall out.
Heat 1/2 tablespoon of vegetable oil and 1 teaspoon of sesame oil in a large nonstick pan. Once hot, add the potstickers and cook until the bottoms are golden brown. Add 1/4 cup of water and cover with a lid. Steam for 2-3 minutes; remove from pan to a serving tray. Repeat with the remainder of potstickers and oils. Remove from heat and serve immediately with the dipping sauce. Enjoy!
