These Potstickers have a lot going for them - quick, easy, kid-friendly, and full of veggies and protein. Kids love that get to eat with their fingers so much that they forget about all the healthy stuff inside. They make a fun weeknight meal that gets everyone helping in the kitchen.
1 pound ground chicken or turkey
1.5 cups of pre-packaged broccoli slaw
2 cloves garlic, minced
1 Tablespoon freshly grated ginger
1 Tablespoon soy sauce
1/2 teaspoon crushed red pepper (optional)
salt and pepper
1 package won ton wrappers
2 Tablespoons sesame oil
soy sauce for dipping
Cook ground chicken (or turkey) in a large skillet over medium high heat until completely done.
Drain off any fat.
Return chicken to pan and add broccoli slaw.
Cook over medium heat for 3 minutes, or until the vegetables are softened.
Add garlic, ginger and soy sauce, cook for 1 more minute.
Remove pan from heat and stir in crushed red pepper if using, salt and pepper to taste.
Lay out 12 won ton wrappers on a clean surface.
Moisten the edges of the won ton wrappers with water using your fingers or a pastry brush.
Spoon 1 tablespoon of the ground chicken mixture into the center of each won ton wrapper.
Fold won ton wrapper so that it forms a triangle while gently fold edges to form pleats – this will help the pot stickers stay together as they cook.
Repeat process until all filling is used.
Heat about 2 tablespoons sesame oil in a skillet over medium heat.
Add 6 pot stickers at a time to the pan lying on their side.
Cook about 1-2 minutes or until golden brown, then turn over and cook on the other side. Repeat with remaining pot stickers.
Serve with soy sauce for dipping.
