monday eats.

This is happening. #bakedpotstickers
i'll be the first to admit i'm no pioneer woman.
but, my husband sure thinks i'm a good cook.
and his opinion matters most.

it helps that my mother-in-law also likes my cooking. {i'm totally putting words in her mouth.}
the last two or three times she's been up here or i've been down in florida she's asked me to make potstickers.
she loves them.
the kids love them.
and so do i.

while at the amish grocery the other day we picked up one of the ingrediants.
the hardest ingredient to find.
jalepeno pepper jelly.
This is gonna make the dipping sauce super tasty!

let's get started.
these are going to become one of your favorites.
i promise.

Baked Asian Potstickers
adapted from The Pampered Chef

1 (10 ounce) can white chicken meat , drained and flaked or about a cup and a half of cooked chicken
1 (8 ounce) can water chestnuts
½ cup green onions with top , thinly sliced
¼ cup carrot , grated
1 teaspoon fresh gingerroot , peeled and finely chopped (or 1/4 tsp dry ginger)
1 tablespoon reduced sodium soy sauce
1 egg white , lightly beaten
¼ cup mayonnaise
1 garlic clove , pressed
24 square wonton wrappers

dipping sauce
½ cup jalapeno jelly
¼ cup rice vinegar
2 tablespoons reduced sodium soy sauce

1. Preheat oven to 425°F.

2. In a large bowl, combine chicken, water chestnuts, green onions, carrot, ginger, soy sauce, egg white, mayo and garlic. Mix well.
Carrots, water chestnuts, and green onions.

3. To assemble potstickers, place 12 wonton wrappers onto a smooth, clean and dry surface. Lightly brush the edges of each wonton with water. Place about 1 tablespoon of filling onto the center of each wonton. Fold corners of the wonton to the middle to secure the filling inside (envelope style works well, but you can be creative).

you can even recruit a couple of helpers...

Another helper.

4. Place wontons on a cookie sheet and lightly spray with Pam or olive oil. Repeat with remaining wontons.
Ready for the oven.

5. Bake 12-15 min until golden brown.

6. For dipping sauce, place jelly in a small bowl. Microwave on high 30-40 sec or until warm. Add vinegar and soy sauce. Whisk until well blended.

7. Serve potstickers with dipping sauce and enjoy!
