So I think it’s time to up our game in the kitchen and these Mushroom chicken and Cashew Potstickers are the perfect place to start.

Tasty and bursting with flavour and although not a ‘beginners class’ type recipe, they are actually fun and simple enough to follow and make. So challenge yourself to make these and show us how they turned out and tag us on social @therefillerysa. We LOVE seeing everyones creations with what they make with our ingredients.

Why do I love Pot stickers – they are so versatile–you can fill them with anything you want and as full as you want , and also great for left overs you need to use up. And the play between the crispy, crusty bottom, and the tender parts, makes for a truly unique flavour sensation.

I also have a favourite Go-To dipping sauce you simply must try from The Spruce eats, This recipe is a quick, easy, and popular version. It uses a soy sauce and rice vinegar base with garlic, sesame oil, and hot chile oil for flavor. The sauce works great for classic pork-filled dumplings but also pairs wonderfully with these Mushroom, chicken and cashew pot stickers. YUM!
