Potstickers are unbelievably easy to make. Best of all, they’re freezer-friendly, perfect for those busy weeknights!
Whenever I have a chance, I make huge batches of potstickers. They’re one of my most favorite things to eat, so it’s always super convenient to have a batch of homemade potsticker right in the freezer. And it’s always helpful to have a helping hand. Plus, it’s even more fun when you compare your pretty potsticker folding skills while your helping partner destructs them.

Sesame Chicken Potstickers - Potstickers are unbelievably easy to make. Best of all, they're freezer-friendly, perfect for those busy weeknights!

Still, pretty or not, these potstickers have quickly become a favorite of mine. I’ve tried shrimp and pork potstickers – both of which I love – but the chicken has quickly become a favorite. These chicken potstickers are also more budget friendly, which become super helpful when you double/triple the recipe for freezing.

Best of all, you can completely customize these fillings by adding or omitting your preferred veggies. Just be sure to make extra to freeze – these will come in super handy when you have those Asian potsticker cravings!


  • 1 pound ground chicken
  • 3 ounces shiitake mushrooms, diced
  • 2 cloves garlic, pressed
  • 2 green onions, thinly sliced
  • 2 tablespoons reduced sodium soy sauce
  • 1 tablespoon sesame oil
  • 1 tablespoon freshly grated ginger
  • 1 teaspoon rice vinegar
  • 1/4 teaspoon white pepper
  • 36 won ton wrappers
  • 2 tablespoons vegetable oil


  1. In a large bowl, combine chicken, mushrooms, garlic, green onions, soy sauce, sesame oil, ginger, rice vinegar and white pepper.*
  2. To assemble the potstickers, place wrappers on a work surface. Spoon 1 tablespoon of the chicken mixture into the center of each wrapper. Using your finger, rub the edges of the wrappers with water. Fold the dough over the filling to create a half-moon shape, pinching the edges to seal.*
  3. Heat vegetable oil in a large skillet over medium heat. Add potstickers in a single layer and cook until golden and crisp, about 2-3 minutes per side.
  4. Serve immediately.
