So it has been a long, thanksgiving kept me pretty busy. Now back to normal life with just me and my little family. I’ve been posting more on my blog, as you will notice. I trying to get out a few posts per week. I am going to have to pat myself on the back, haha. It ain’t easy I tell ya. With that 2-year-old daughter of my who is super busy. But she has finally started daycare, and at least once a week, I get to have a child free off day, she does 3 days a week. Today I decided to make some yummy chicken dumpling or potsticker, whatever you call it they are delicious. See pic. below :).
Don’t they look absolutely scrumptious as my Mother in Law would say haha. We love pot stickers at the Therman house. But I’ve never mad them myself. We usually get potsticker/dumplings when we go to a restaurant, or we get them frozen from Costco. We usually eat the as a main dish. Costco has 3 different ones the sell, we have tried all of then, and they have all been good. But not like making my own dumplings, seasoned my way, with no preservatives. These little things were super easy to make, the only hard part really was folding them. It took a couple of youtube videos to get me right lol. I used ground chicken, simply because I like chicken, I don’t eat pork or red meat. You can use any ground meat, or just vegetables. I purchased the dough from a large asian grocery store in Ypsilanti, which I had in my freezer for a few weeks. My family enjoyed them so much that I wanted to share the recipe with you all. These dumplings were boiled and pan-fried. I topped it with an easy sauce of ponzu, which is a japanese soy sauce that is citrusy. I also had some let over chili oil that I made weeks ago in the fridge so it was the perfect combination. In less than an hour you can make your own yummy dumplings. You may never want to eat then outside again. Try this recipe and let me know what you think.
