According to Chinese legend, potstickers were created by accident when the chef of a Chinese emperor accidentally left a pot of dumplings over the stove for too long, crisping the bottoms of the dumplings. Fortunately, the crispy dumplings were a hit among members of the Chinese Imperial Court and so a “new recipe” was born. Several generations have since created their own version of this irresistible crescent shaped delight. Known as gyoza by the Japanese or mandu by the Koreans, potstickers are deliciously crispy on one side and delectably tender on the other. Annie Chun’s Chicken and Vegetable Potstickers are great as an appetizer, snack, or as part of a larger meal. They’re excellent just as they are or with a side of soy-vinegar dipping sauce. Each time you enjoy these delicious potstickers, don’t forget to thank that ancient Chinese chef for his fortunate accident!
