These turkey potstickers are a fun way to involve your kids in the kitchen.  They come out to 2SP for 5 potstickers, and they go really well with any kind of fried rice.  
Course: dinner
Cuisine: Chinese


  • 3/4 lb Lean ground turkey or chicken
  • 1/4 cup Thinly sliced scallions
  • 2 tbsp Chopped cilantro
  • 1/2 tsp Ginger paste found in the refrigerator section of most produce sections near the herbs
  • 1 tsp Soy sauce
  • 1 tsp chili paste more if you like the heat, but this was enough for our Little’s palates sub with 1/2 tsp red pepper flakes if you don’t have it
  • 1 tsp ketchup
  • 1 tsp Worcestershire sauce
  • 1 egg
  • Pinch of salt and pepper
  • 40-50 Wonton wrappers or potstickers *I used a biscuit cutter to cut my wonton wrappers round to make the purse folded gyoza, but you don’t have to be as extra as I am


  • Combine the first 10 ingredients in a bowl. I did this the night before and stored in an airtight container in the refrigerator. This is optional.
  • Scoop 1 tsp of the turkey mix into the wrapper.
  • Dip a finger in a bowl of water and wet the edges of the skin.
  • Fold the wrapper into a half circle and pinch the middle. Make little pleated folds on each side until fully sealed. Alternatively, you can just seal it as a half circle, pinch it into a purse, or just make crazy designs like my four year old.

  • As you complete the dumplings, place them on a baking sheet covered with a damp kitchen towel to keep from drying out.
  • When you are ready to cook, spray a frying pan with cooking spray and heat to medium high heat.
  • Place about 12 dumplings in the hot pan, flat side down, and cook for 2-3 minutes until golden brown. Do not flip or move them.
  • Pour 1/4 cup water into the pan, cover the pan, and let steam for about 3 minutes.
  • Serve immediately and enjoy.
