    4 dozen

Ingredients

  • 1 pound boneless skinless chicken thighs, cut into chunks
  • 1-1/2 cups sliced fresh mushrooms
  • 1 small onion, cut into wedges
  • 2 tablespoons hoisin sauce
  • 2 tablespoons prepared mustard
  • 2 tablespoons Sriracha chili sauce or 1 tablespoon hot pepper sauce
  • 1 package (10 ounces) pot sticker or gyoza wrappers
  • 1 large egg, lightly beaten
  • SAUCE:
  • 1 cup reduced-sodium soy sauce
  • 1 green onion, chopped
  • 1 teaspoon ground ginger

Directions

  • In a food processor, combine the uncooked chicken, mushrooms, onion, hoisin sauce, mustard and chili sauce; cover and process until blended.
  • Place 1 tablespoon of chicken mixture in the center of each wrapper. (Until ready to use, keep wrappers covered with a damp towel to prevent them from drying out.) Moisten edges with egg. Bring opposite sides together to form a semicircle; pinch to seal.
  • Place potstickers in a single layer on a large greased steamer basket rack; place in a Dutch oven over 1 in. of water. Bring to a boil; cover and steam for 8-10 minutes or until filling juices run clear.
  • Meanwhile, in a small bowl, combine sauce ingredients. Serve with potstickers. Refrigerate leftovers.
