Hell’s Kitchen: Chicken Pot Stickers

June 1, 2022

Join us as we go back in time to the Song Dynasty with these chicken pot stickers! Pot stickers actually translates to, “stuck to the wok,” which is fortunately a challenge we didn’t have to face. The chicken was seasoned with soy sauce, sesame oil, and garlic before mixing it with diced cabbage, carrots, green onion, and ginger. After mixing everything together, we put a small spoonful onto a vegan won ton wrap, sealed the edges, and fried and steamed them for 15 minutes with vegetable oil. On the side, we prepared a dipping sauce for the pot stickers, consisting of soy sauce, rice vinegar, pure sesame oil, chili garlic sauce, and red pepper flakes. Pair these pot stickers with our homemade dipping sauce, and you’ll be begging for more!

Taste: 10/10 – The wontons were crispy with a very flavorful filling and the sauce added the perfect amount of flavor to finish the dish.

Mouth feel/consistency: 8/10 – the pot stickers were a little chewy, but overall crispy and enjoyable.

Smell: 10/10 – the seasonings and sauces blended together to fill the kitchen with a delectable aroma.

Visual appeal: 9.5/10 – after topping them with green onion, they looked very appealing due to the golden crispiness of the pot stickers and the topping of a dash of dipping sauce.

Creativity: 10/10 – this was a dish that none of us had ever prepared before, and we came up with both the recipe for the filling and dipping sauce, and both were packed with flavor.
