When you need a quick snack or meal, just throw Frozen Potstickers in Air Fryer! If you're looking for the best way to make crispy dumplings, don't miss this simple recipe! Using the air fryer is the best cooking method for this great snack or main course!
If you're a fan of Chinese food, these air fryer frozen dumplings are just what you need! They're a great way to take less time, getting that delicious snack that you're craving. Why wait for perfection when you really don't have to?
The hot air of the air fryer makes the cooking time literal minutes and makes that crispy bottom and soft center that we all know and love. Forget about pan frying or tossing them in the deep fryer, and try this recipe instead!
- Frozen potstickers
- Olive oil-or olive oil spray
- Step 1
Lightly spray or brush potstickers with olive oil. Place in the air fryer basket in a single layer without overlapping.
- Step 2
Air fry at 360 degrees F for 8-10 minutes, turning potstickers halfway through air frying. Potstickers should be golden brown when done.
How to Serve
Once you cook this simple side dish, get ready! They're going to be hot! Let them cool down slightly, and then serve them with your favorite dipping sauce. Some great options for Chinese dumplings include hoisin sauce, sweet chili sauce, soy ginger sauce, or even regular soy sauce.
The crispy wonton wrappers provide a crunch to these air-fried potstickers, and the sauce helps to add a bit of flavor and softness.
How to Store
This easy recipe cooks the food quickly and also makes it easy to store. Store leftover dumplings in an airtight container once they are cooled, and keep them in the fridge.
To reheat, you can add them back to the air fryer and reheat them for a couple of minutes to get those crispy skins. You can also reheat them in the microwave for one of the fastest ways to get them hot again, but that method isn't going to give them that crispy outer crunch.
You bet! Since most of the potstickers that you buy from the grocery stores are already cooked all the way, this recipe is the easiest way to get them hot and ready to eat! Just make sure to heat them all the way through and enjoy.
They're not the exact same, but they are very similar. Typically potstickers will have a thinner outer layer, while dumplings are not. Potstickers are also fried as one of the main cooking methods, whereas dumplings will not be fried to be cooked.
A lot of people will interchange the two, as I have in this recipe in spots, but there is a difference between the two in terms of what you will find on a menu or order.
