I used my Epicurious app to find Asian main dishes. Pot stickers jumped out at me. So I read a bunch of the recipes, seemed fairly uncomplicated, and pretty healthy. (Tip: When making a new recipe read more than one version and the recipes reviews. Sometimes a direction that is unclear in one recipe is cleared in another, or someone can review it and tell you what they used in a pinch to substitute a missing pantry supply.) I used mainly the recipe from this recipe, and the prep directions from this recipe.
|Chicken Pot Sticker Filling|
|Don't overfill these, they will shrink|
|1 1/2 tsp of filling, top and half of each side to seal|
|Keeping them covered with a damp towel keeps them from drying out|
|This is how many half of this recipe makes.|
|All DONE!!! Steamed and ready!|
|Beautiful Crispy Bottom|
This makes enough for two people.
And that is about 300 calories per person!
The second time I made these I served them with the frozen steamable rice, so easy and fast.
When you are cooking these just stick to the times in the recipe, even if it feels too long.
I will for sure be making them many more times!!!
They smell and taste like good Chinese, not fast food Chinese.
Have fun making them!!!
