Apricot-Chicken Pot Sticks


  • 2 cups plus 1 tablespoon water - divided
  • 2 small boneless skinless chicken breasts (about 8 ounces)
  • 2 cups chopped finely shredded cabbage
  • 1/2 cup all-fruit apricot preserves
  • 2 green onions with tops - finely chopped
  • 2 teaspoons soy sauce
  • 1/2 teaspoon grated fresh ginger
  • 1/8 teaspoon black pepper
  • 30 (3-inch) wonton wrappers
  • Prepared sweet & sour sauce (optional)


Bring 2 cups water to boil in medium saucepan. Add chicken. Reduce heat to low; simmer, covered, 10 minutes or until chicken is no longer pink in center. Remove from saucepan; drain.

Add cabbage and remaining 1 tablespoon water to saucepan. Cook over high heat 1 to 2 minutes or until water evaporates, stirring occasionally. Remove from heat; cool slightly.

Finely chop chicken. Add to saucepan along with preserves, green onions, soy sauce, ginger and pepper; mix well.

To assemble pot stickers, remove 3 wonton wrappers at a time from package. Spoon slightly rounded tablespoonful of chicken mixture onto center of each wrapper; brush edges with water. Bring 4 corners together; press to seal. Repeat with remaining wrappers and filling.

Spray steamer with nonstick cooking spray. Assemble steamer so that water is 1/2 inch below steamer basket. Fill steamer basket with pot stickers, leaving enough space between them to prevent sticking. Cover; steam 5 minutes. Transfer pot stickers to serving plate. Serve with prepared sweet & sour sauce, if desired.
