You may also see these referred to as Pan-fried dumplings potstickers or gyoza in Japanese. They’re basically the same.


They’re full of ground turkey so they’ll be better for you. They are perfectly steamed with crispy bottoms, a textural dream.

My potstickers are not wrapped perfectly. You can practice and get it right, or use a potsticker maker. Honestly, I don’t care if they look perfect, they don’t last long enough here to look at for very long. I simply wet the edge with water and crimp them together to hold in the filling.

Remember to use a non-stick pan, so potstickers will not stick to the pan and have a nice and crunchy bottom.

To test the filling mixture before you wrap and cook, take a small amount of it and add it to the frying pan. It doesn’t have to be pretty, cook it through, cool, and taste it. Adjust with more seasonings if necessary. Proceed with wrapping and cooking.


If you have a steamer, line the bottom of the steamer with parchment paper. This will keep the potstickers from sticking. Place the folded dumplings on the paper over boiling water. Steam for 7 to 8 minutes until cooked through.


I like this traditional Bamboo steamer as well as this Steamer set also is economical and works great. As well, you may want to get this simple Steamer Basket that fits inside a pan you already have.

  • Lay wontons out on a clean surface.
  • Fill center of wonton with approximately 1/2 tablespoon of the mixture.

  • Watch the water level and add more as needed.
  • Transfer dumplings to a platter after steaming them for 8 minutes.
  • To fry, add 1 tablespoon coconut oil to a saute' pan or use a non-stick pan without oil. Fry on medium-high until golden.
