If you never made potstickers or any kind of dumplings before, don’t be intimidated. Making potstickers is a pretty straight-forward process when you use wonton wrappers. Wonton wrappers are basically the potsticker dough already premade and rolled-out paper-thin! All you need to do to make potstickers is add the filling to the wonton wrapper and seal it, and then cook the potstickers on the frying pan.

What aisle are wonton wrappers sold in? Wonton wrappers are usually sold in a produce section, in a refrigerator next to tofu and gourmet refrigerated salad dressings. If you can’t find them, ask a store employee and they’ll point you to the right aisle :) There are two types of wonton wrappers – square and round, and for potstickers you need the round ones.

You can make you own frozen potstickers by assembling potstickers and then freezing them uncooked. To freeze the potstickers, line a plate with parchment paper (so they won’t stick), put assembled potstickers on parchment paper in a single layer so they are not touching and put in a freezer for 1 hour. Then put the frozen potstickers in a large ziploc bag and put back in a freezer until ready to use. To cook homemade potstickers from frozen, cook them the exact same way as fresh except just add an extra 5 minutes to cooking time. Enjoy!

Make the filling for the potstickers

  • Put ground chicken or pork, shredded cabbage, garlic, green onion, ginger, soy sauce and sesame oil in a bowl and mix together until well combined.

Assemble the potstickers

  • Fill a small bowl with water and set aside.

  • Arrange wonton wrappers on a work surface like a table or counter.

  • Put 1 tbsp of filling in the center of each wonton wrapper.

  • Dip your finger in the water and run around the edges of each wonton wrapper to moisten it.

  • Fold the wrappers in half over the filling (to create a half-moon shape), then pinch the edges of the wrappers together to seal them.

Cook the potstickers

  • Heat the oil in a large non-stick frying pan over medium heat (to speed up the process, I use 2 frying pans at the same time).

  • Put the potstickers in a frying pan in a single layer and cook for 2 minutes. Carefully flip potstickers with a spatula. Add 1/4 cup of water to the frying pan. Cover and cook for 4 minutes.

  • Serve the potstickers with soy sauce for dipping.
