  • Air Fryer


  • 1 12 oz pack of dumpling wrappers I used Nasoya wonton wrappers, they're 1 SP for 3 wrappers. The folded dumplings use a circular wrapper, so if you can only find square ones, just cut them into circles with a lid of some sort or a knife!
  • 1 lb ground chicken
  • 4 oz shiitake mushrooms diced
  • 4 garlic cloves pressed
  • 4 green onions chopped finely
  • 2 tbsp soy sauce
  • 1 tbsp rice vinegar
  • 1 tbsp fresh minced ginger
  • 1/4 tsp red pepper flakes
  • Oil spray for air frying or oil for pan frying
  • Dipping sauce of choice ponzu, black vinegar, or store bought are all delicious!


  • Combine chicken, diced mushroom, garlic, green onion, soy sauce, rice vinegar, ginger, and red pepper flakes in mixing bowl
  • Lay out wonton wrappers, and place up to 1 tsp of filling in the middle (see image). You don't want to over-stuff these!
  • Wet your finger, and wet one half of the dumpling wrapper rim
  • Fold dumpling wrapper over so it is a half-moon shape
  • Starting at one edge, pinch and fold to create little creases along the dumpling's edge
  • Spray all sides of the dumplings with oil spray before putting them on air fryer tray
  • Air fry at 374 for 11 minutes (flip them halfway for even browning)*


*If you don't have an air fryer, you can cook these in a pan. Heat oil to medium high in a large skillet and add a few dumplings (don't overcrowd). Once the bottoms of the dumplings start to brown, add a splash of water and cover the entire pan with a lid, allowing steam to build. Steam dumplings for ~5 minutes, until insides are cooked through and the water has evaporated.
To Freeze Dumplings: Place dumplings on a parchment-lined baking sheet or plate (raw), ensuring that none of them are touching each other Freeze on baking sheet for 6 hours + Once fully frozen, put into a freezer bag and store for up to 3 months! When you go to cook them, just account for a few minutes of extra cooking time.
