Super Quick & Easy Chicken Potsticker (Dumpling) Soup


We are huge fans of potstickers, a.k.a. dumplings.  I usually either steam them or lightly sauté them, but now I'm using this recipe for a super quick meal!  Potsticker (dumpling) soup is so quick and easy whether you use frozen store bought or homemade potstickers.  Try to find the mini-size potstickers (and use double the amount in the recipe) because they are the perfect size for soup, but if you can only find the traditional size, they are delicious too!  You can make this vegetarian by substituting the chicken potstickers with vegetable and the chicken stock with vegetable stock.




Quick & Easy Chicken Potsticker Soup
1 Tablespoon Olive Oil
3 ribs celery, chopped
2 medium carrots, chopped
1/2 of a medium onion, chopped
1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
1/2 teaspoon onion powder
a pinch of crushed red pepper flakes, optional
6 cups chicken or vegetable stock
10 frozen chicken and vegetable potstickers (frozen - do not thaw)
1 cup Kale, spinach, or napa cabbage, julienned, optional

In a pan, heat the olive oil over medium-high heat.  Sauté the celery, carrots and onion until onion is translucent.  Add garlic and onion powders and crushed red pepper flakes, if using, stir and sauté 1 minute.  Carefully add stock.  Bring to a boil and boil for 5 minutes.  Add frozen potstickers, bring to a boil and boil for 2 minutes.  If adding greens, add them in and give a quick stir.  Serve.
