READY IN: 1hr 1min




  • In a bowl, combine water and mushrooms, cover and let soak for 5 minutes.
  • Drain, discard stems, and mince caps.
  • In a large non-stick skillet, heat vegetable oil over medium-high heat until hot; saute mushrooms in oil with onions and ginger.
  • Add cabbage and cook until cabbage is lightly browned (9 minutes), stirring frequently; while cabbage is cooking add water 1 tbsp at a time to keep it from sticking to the pan, if needed.
  • Spoon cabbage mixture into a medium sized bowl and let it cool.
  • Add chicken and next 5 ingredients to the bowl and mix well.
  • Working with one wonton wrapper at a time (keep the rest covered so they don't dry out), spoon a tablespoon full of the mixture into the middle of the wrapper; moisten the edges with water.
  • Bring two points (diagonal corners) in to the center, and pinch together.
  • Bring the other two corners in and pinch together; and pinch the 4 edges together to seal.
  • Sprinkle a baking sheet with cornstarch, and place pot stickers on baking sheet as you finish sealing them (keeping finished ones covered with a towel to keep them from drying out).
  • In a large non-stick skillet, heat vegetable oil over medium heat until hot.
  • Place 15 pot stickers in bottom of skillet and cook until bottoms are lightly browned (3 minutes).
  • Add broth to skillet and cook, covered, until liquid is absorbed (3 minutes).
  • Set finished pot stickers aside, and keep warm.
  • Wipe skillet out with a paper towel, and repeat the process with the other pot stickers.
  • Serve with soy sauce or other sauce for dipping.
