Ingredients

  • 1 pound ground chicken
  • 2 tbsp lemongrass paste
  • 2 cloves fresh minced garlic
  • 1 tbsp fresh grated ginger
  • 2 tbsp chopped green onions
  • 1/3 cup red bell pepper diced
  • 1/2 tbsp chopped cilantro
  • 1 teaspoon sesame oil
  • 1 tbsp soy sauce
  • pinch white pepper
  • 1 teaspoon rice vinegar
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 12 ounce package wonton wrappers about 48 wrappers
  • 1-2 tbsp vegetable oil
  • For serving: soy sauce sesame seeds, chives

Instructions

  • In a small bowl, mix together ground chicken, lemongrass paste, garlic, ginger, green onions, red bell pepper, cilantro, sesame oil, soy sauce, white pepper, rice vinegar, and salt. Stir until well combined.
  • Fill a small bowl with water and keep near working area.
  • Lay out 4 to 5 wonton wrappers on a working surface. Cover the wrappers you are not using with a damp cloth or damp paper towel. Place about 1 teaspoon of chicken mixture into center of each wrapper.
  • Dip a finger into water and run it around all four edges of the wrappers. Then, fold each wrapper in half. Starting at the center, pinch inward several times.
  • Place filled wontons on a clean plate and cover with a damp cloth or damp paper towel.
  • Repeat process until all wonton wrappers are filled.
  • Heat about 1 tbsp of vegetable oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat. Place potstickers flat side down in skillet. Cook for about 2 minutes, or until bottoms of the potstickers are browned. You will be able to fit about 24 potstickers in a 12 inch skillet. NOTE: If you do not want to use all potstickers right away, you can freeze the remaining 24 potstickers in a single layer. Once they have frozen for a few hours, you can place them in a large Ziplock bag.
  • Add 1/2 cup water to skillet and reduce heat to low so that the water is simmering (this assumes you are using about 24 potstickers in a 12 inch skillet). Place cover on skillet, but tilt it up so that steam can escape. Let steam until most of the water has evaporated, which will be about 5 to 7 minutes.
  • Remove potstickers from skillet. Immediately sprinkle with sesame seeds and diced chives. Serve with soy sauce for dipping.
