When it comes to my all-time favorite foods, I have two very distinctive answers: On the sweet front, it has been (and will always be) glazed doughnuts. Newly emergent on the savory front is dumplings in every way, shape and form, from Spicy Chicken Wontons to Easy Chicken Potstickers and every doughy option in between.

I’m a huge fan of DIY’ing my favorite takeout dishes, from 30-Minute Mongolian Beef and Pineapple Chicken Fried Rice to Easy Pad Thai with Chicken and Baked Orange Chicken Meatballs.

It’s hard to beat some quality takeout-inspired fare, especially when you’re whipping it up fresh in your own kitchen. And now we can add crispy pan-fried potstickers to the lineup.

These flavor-packed dumplings feature a mix of ground chicken, garlic, ginger and scallions all tucked inside a wonton wrapper. Pan-fry the pockets until crispy then dip and dunk them in homemade soy dipping sauce that’s savory, sweet and features a touch of (optional) heat. They are the ultimate start to your takeout-fakeout feast!

Easy Chicken Potstickers with Soy Dipping Sauce

For the dipping sauce:

  • 1/2
    cup
    low sodium soy sauce
  • 1
    teaspoon
    seasoned rice wine vinegar
  • 1/2
    teaspoon
    sesame oil
  • 1
    Tablespoon
    sugar
  • 1
    Tablespoon
    sliced scallions
  • 1/2
    teaspoon
    crushed red pepper flakes
  • 1/4
    teaspoon
    sesame seeds

For the potstickers:

  • 1
    pound
    ground chicken (See Kelly’s Notes)
  • 1/4
    cup
    sliced scallions, green and white parts
  • 2
    teaspoons
    minced garlic
  • 1
    teaspoon
    minced fresh ginger
  • 1
    Tablespoon
    low sodium soy sauce
  • 1
    teaspoon
    sesame oil
  • 25
    round wonton wrappers
  • Vegetable oil, for pan-frying

Make the dipping sauce:

In a medium bowl, whisk together the soy sauce, rice wine vinegar, sesame oil, sugar, scallions, red pepper flakes and sesame seeds. Set the sauce aside. 

Make the potstickers:

In a medium bowl, stir together the ground chicken, scallions, garlic, ginger, soy sauce and sesame oil until well combined.

To assemble the potstickers, arrange the wonton wrappers on a work surface and fill a small bowl with water. Spoon about 2 teaspoons of the chicken mixture into the center of each wrapper. Dip your finger in the water then run it around the edges of each wonton wrapper. Fold the wrappers in half and pinch pleats along the top. Press the bottoms of the potstickers to create flat bottoms.

Add 2 tablespoons vegetable oil to a large sauté pan set over medium-high heat. Swirl the oil to coat the bottom of the pan, then add a portion of the potstickers in a single layer and sear the bottoms until they are golden brown and crunchy.

Once the potstickers are browned on the bottom, add 1/4 cup water to the pan and cover it immediately to steam the potstickers until the chicken is cooked through, about 5 minutes.

Remove the lid and continue cooking while swirling the potstickers in the pan until all of the water has evaporated.

Transfer the potstickers to a paper towel-lined plate then repeat the searing and steaming process with the remaining potstickers.

Kelly’s Notes:

Ground chicken can sometimes be tricky to find, but ground turkey is a great substitute and often more readily available at most grocery stores. 

The filling does not need to be cooked prior to being sealed in the wonton wrappers.
