Pot Stickers

I made these at school with my kids after reading a story about the Asian culture.  The kids loved it and they turned out so yummy! The hardest part is putting them all together! That is when a class full of kids comes in helpful! I was so busy helping the kids make these, that I didn't take any pictures, but I promise they are delicious!

3 cups of boiling water
2 cups napa cabbage, sliced finely (napa cabbage is green, last year I used the purple, and it was not near as good!)
2 cups roasted chicken breast, diced (I used a rotisserie chicken from the store!)
2 green onions
1 clove garlic, minced
1 t corn starch
1 T sesame oil
salt and pepper, to taste
pot sticker wrappers
1 T olive oil (for cooking)

Boil the water and pour over the sliced cabbage to soften. Drain excess water from the cabbage and put into food processor.  Add chicken, green onions, garlic, corn starch, soy sauce, sesame oil, salt and pepper.  Pulse food processor until thoroughly combined.

Spread out the pot sticker wraps and scoop a small teaspoon full of filling onto the center of each wrap.  Wet the top of each pot sticker wrapper with a baster brush dipped in water.

Fold the pot sticker to make a moon shape and pinch shut with 3-4 pleats along the side. 

Heat 1 T of oil in a pan.  Once hot, add 12 pot stickers and cook until the bottoms are golden brown.  Add 1/2 cup water and cover with a lid.  Steam for 4 minutes.  Repeat with the remainder of the pot stickers.
