With the big game just around the corner I keep seeing lots of football snacks circling the Internet. Of course this means lots of wing, nacho, and dip recipes. Don’t get me wrong these are three foods I could eat daily however, I propose we bring a new player into the mix: potstickers. It turns out making potstickers at home is incredibly easy and super delicious.



I never really considered making homemade potstickers, especially after finding frozen ones at Trader Joes that are addicting. I decided to give it a try after feeling ambitious the other afternoon and wanting to step outside of my comfort zone. As it turns out these are a cinch to make and are ready in 30 minutes.


For this recipe I used ground chicken, typically though pork is used in potstickers. You could substitute ground pork in this recipe, or any other ground meat! I’ve always like ground chicken potstickers so that’s what I went with.



If you ask me these are the perfect appetizer, snack, or light meal. So instead of sticking to the same old game time snacks, bring out these bad boys and I promise you won’t regret it!



Chicken Potstickers

Prep Time: 20 minutes

Cook Time: 10 minutes

Total Time: 30 minutes

6 servings


  • 1 pound ground chicken
  • 2 green onions, thinly sliced
  • 1 cup green cabbage, shredded
  • 2 cloves, finely grated
  • 1 tablespoon fresh ginger, finely grated
  • 2 teaspoons sesame oil
  • 1 tablespoon hoisin sauce
  • 1 teaspoon Sriracha
  • ¼ teaspoon white pepper
  • 36 wonton wrappers
  • 2 tablespoons vegetable oil
  • Soy sauce, for dipping
  • Water for making potstickers


  1. In a large bowl combine chicken, green onions, cabbage, garlic, ginger, sesame oil, hoisin sauce, Sriracha, and white pepper.
  2. To assemble dumplings, place wonton wrappers on a work surface. Spoon about 1 tablespoon of the chicken mixture into the center of the wonton wrappers. Using your fingers, rub the edges of the wrapper with a little water. Fold the wrapper over bringing all the edges together to create a half-moon shape. Pinch the edges together to seal.
  3. Heat the vegetable oil in a large skillet (make sure a lid fits this skillet) over medium heat. Add 5-6 potstickers to pan and cook for 2-3 minutes on first side, until golden brown. Flip over potstickers and add about 1 tablespoon of water to the pan and immediately cover with lid. Cook for an additional 2-3 minutes.
  4. Serve immediately* with soy sauce if desired.

*you can keep the potstickers warm in the oven while finishing making the rest of them
