To make pot stickers:

Bullet; Green Ingredients:

~1 ground chicken breast (or meat of your choice, or you can opt out meat, make this into vegetarian pot stickers). 

~ 8 large shrimp (shelled and divined)

~ 1/2 cabbage or vegetable of your choice.

~ 1 tablespoon chopped green onion (some of you might call it green scallion)

~ 1 teaspoon chopped ginger

~ 1/2 teaspoon 5-spice powder (you can now buy this from your local grocery store, if you do not have it, okay too!)

~ 2 tablespoon soy sauce (light or dark, it does not matter)

~ 2 tablespoon sesame oil

~ 2 teaspoon salt

~ 1 tablespoon corn starch

~ 1 package store bought pot sticker wrappers

~ 3 tablespoon cooking oil (just use whatever you have, excluding olive oil)

~ 2/3 cup water

Bullet; Green Directions:

1. Place chicken in bowl, add shrimp (cut into small pieces), cabbage (see 2 on how to prepare this), green onion, ginger, 5-spice powder, soy sauce, sesame oil, corn starch and salt. Mix thoroughly until thickened.

2. Cook cabbage in boiling water for about 2 minutes, once cooked, plunge into cold water. Squeeze dry and chop finely. Squeeze dry again.

3. See this video on how to fold pot stickers into shape -…

4. Heat a flat frying pan until very hot, add oil, when oil is hot, add pot stickers (do not overlap), fry until bottom is golden (about 1 minute) on medium high heat, add 2/3 cup water, cover and cook until water has entirely evaporated.

5. For dipping sauce - I generally make my own. These days you can buy the dipping sauce from stores. But soy sauce and sesame oil mixture will do just fine, oh...and a touch of vinegar. A little acidity always makes the food taste better.

I LOVE how you coordinate the colors!!  The deep reds are so vibrant... and the green of the green onion makes such a pretty accent!  This is such a gorgeous setting!
