Favorite Trader Joe’s Item #27: Chicken Gyoza Potstickers:
(they come in an all veggie kind too)
I like to keep these in the freezer. On nights when I’m feeling super lazy and the husband needs to be fed, I can easily whip something out to the table.
I like the pan fry them & serve them with a dipping sauce.
Sunday night I was feeling really anti-social and didn’t want to face crowds of people in the supermarket. So, I looked in the fridge and found some ingredients to make us some soup.
By the way…another main contributor to this soup is Trader Joe’s Shredded Carrots:
I like to use these when I make my Vietnamese chicken salad- but that’s a whole other post…..
I digress… Here’s your ingredient list:
- Chicken Gyoza Potstickers (the more the merrier, I think)
- 2 large handfuls of Shredded Carrots
- 4 green onions chopped (both white & green parts)
- 2 big splashes of Soy Sauce
- 1 32oz container of chicken stock or veggie stock
- a few pieces of sliced ginger
Pour entire container of chicken stock in soup pot. Add half of the green onions & all of the sliced ginger. The more ginger, the spicier it is. I used about two thin slices for the entire pot. Let that simmer for about 10 minutes. Add the carrots, soy sauce, and the pot stickers to the soup. Bring the soup to a slow boil (10 minutes).
Finish off the soup with the rest of your Green Onions….Add some pepper & more soy sauce if you need some more kick…..
Tada! This recipe makes about 4-5 servings
I think bits of fresh Baby Spinach would go well in this soup too! If only I had that the other night… Next time!
