On my shopping trip to Costco, I got a package of these potstickers – Chicken and Vegetable dumplings from Ling Ling. I initially tried a potsticker sample at Costco and really liked it, so I bought a package of the Ling Ling chicken and vegetable potstickers to take home. These potstickers are really tasty!
The Costco Ling Ling potstickers cooking instructions from the package are as follows:
- Heat 2 tbsp of oil in a non-stick pan
- Put frozen potstickers on a frying pan in a single layer
- Add 2/3 cup of warm water to the frying pan
- Cover the pan and cook for 8 minutes or until all the water has evaporated
- Uncover and brown for 1 minute.
I also like to flip the Costco potstickers and brown on the other side for another few minutes. I like my Ling Ling potstickers to be golden brown all over.
The Ling Ling potstickers also offers microwave cooking instructions, but they warm that it’s not recommended. To cook the chicken and vegetable potstickers in a microwave, place potstickers in a microwave-safe bowl, cover with warm water and microwave for 5-6 minutes. I haven’t tried cooking the potstickers in the microwave, as I always use the recommended stovetop method.
You can also boil the Costco potstickers in a pot of water. Just put frozen Ling Ling potstickers in a pot of boiling water and boil for 8 minutes. If you like them to be browned, you’ll have to brown them in a frying pan after boiling. Boiling the water, draining it and separate browning – that’s just too complicated. That’s why I prefer the recommended cooking method in a frying pan – no pots of boiling water to deal with.
Costco potstickers make a great instant dinner, so they are a great thing to have in your freezer for those days there in no time to cook. These Ling Ling potstickers don’t taste like a typical frozen dinner – they actually taste like restaurant potstickers!
