This recipe is part of the “Chinese-Inspired” birthday party menu from Brie‘s birthday bash.

I have made a lot of potstickers over the years. Frankly, I can’t stand wrapping them, and usually hand that duty over to my lovely and wonderful boyfriend. He loves the things, so luckily he doesn’t mind helping out.

Pan-fried and chock full of deliciousness, these potstickers are a crowd pleaser.
Recipe type: Appetizer
Cuisine: Chinese Takeout
Serves: 10-15
  • 2 frozen chicken breasts
  • 1 can cream of chicken soup
  • 3 Tablespoons hoisin sauce
  • 3 Tablespoons squeeze bottle ginger
  • 2 Tablespoons squeeze bottle garlic
  • 1 Tablespoon soy sauce
  • 1 teaspoon seasme oil
  • ½ cup chopped green onions
  • 1 package potsticker wrappers
  • Water
  • Olive oil or non-stick cooking spray
  1. Toss chicken and 1 can of cream of chicken soup into a lined crockpot, and cook on low for four hours.
  2. Remove breasts from liquid and shred in a medium bowl.
  3. Combine with hoisin, ginger, garlic, soy sauce, sesame oil, and green onions. Stir thoroughly.
  4. Place about one teaspoon of filling in the center of a potsticker wrapper. Dip your fingertip in water and gently run it around the edge of the wrapper. Fold wrapper in half and firmly press together edges with the tines of a fork.
  5. Heat oil or non-stick spray in pan over medium-high heat.
  6. Quickly and completely submerge each potsticker in water immediately prior to tossing them in the pan.
  7. Cook about one minute on each side or until lightly brown.
  8. Serve.
  9. Enjoy.
Do not allow assembled and uncooked potstickers to touch one another - they'll stick!
