Ever wondered how chicken potstickers are made? Well, I finally learned a great chicken potsticker recipe and it's 100x better than the ones you order at restaurants. This summer, my boss, who has become my friend, came over to my house so she could teach me her recipe. The whole process was so much fun and I'm so excited to share with you what she taught me. What's great about potstickers is that you can use anything for the filling, so whatever protein and veggies are in your fridge will work just fine.

    Take a spoonful of the filling and place it in the center of the dough. To close the potsticker you can simply fold over the dough until it's closed or use your fingers to crimp the edges.
