Tired of your usual steamed dumplings? Well, this twist in Asian cuisine is something of a wonder to many who enjoy adding a bit of crunch to their meals.

These remarkable pieces date back to China’s Song dynasty (960 – 1280 A.D.). Obscure legends say that a chef in China’s imperial court had served these to court members. He burned a batch of dumplings that had been cooking away by accident. The chef, who had little time to redo the work, decided to present this to the court and called it his new creation. As it turns out, it was a huge hit. If court members from ages ago loved it, we’re sure you will too!

Frequently Asked Questions

What is the difference between a pot sticker and a dumpling?

Pot stickers are also dumplings, but the main difference is their cooking process. While dumplings can either be steamed or fried, pot stickers are a combination of both. You get a steamed top and a burnt bottom, creating a combination of soft and crunchy texture.

Can I freeze my pot stickers?

Yes, you can! To do this, you will need to freeze them on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper for an hour. This prevents the uncooked, chicken pot stickers from sticking. Afterward, remove the frozen pot stickers and place them in a Ziploc bag. Placing your pot stickers in a bag will keep them from getting freezer burn. These frozen pieces can last for up to 3 months. Best of all, you can cook them straight into the skillet without thawing. Take note that the cooking time will be longer compared to room-temperature pot stickers.



Pot stickers are great for sharing or eating alone! Anyone who wants to try something new from their usual dumpling is sure to love this. It is best eaten with rice or your favorite dipping sauce. These pot stickers make for a delectable choice as a main course or even a snack.
