    I haven't used the filling for this recipe but the sauce is fabulous. I usually do a chicken filling.

    I was a little disappointed with the filling of these pot stickers. There wasn't much flavor. I'm planning on looking for a pork filling that has more flavor. The bonus of this recipe was the ease and speed of cooking the pot stickers.

    My sister and I made these without the sauce. They were so good, that night I dreamed that I was still eating them.
