Virtual Food & Wine Festival | China’s Chicken Potstickers

Sharing is caring!

Epcot’s International Food and Wine Festival has been on our Disney bucket list for some time now. We are so excited that this year is the year we’ll be able to cross it off our list! As a part of our Wine and Dine weekend, we scheduled ourselves some time to check out the festival.

For those not making it yet, we’re here to bring you a virtual tour. We’ve teamed up with some of our Disney blogging friends to show you of some of the delicious delicacies the Epcot International Food & Wine Festival has to offer.

Since it will be the kids’ first time too, I wanted to make sure that they would feel comfortable trying new foods while we were there. A few weeks ago, I sat down with our 7 year old, Bella, to look at the menus from the festival.We compiled a list of all the foods she would be willing to try. One of the items on her list was Chicken Pot Stickers from the China Marketplace. I decided to make some for our virtual festival to give her a little taste of what she’ll experience when we head to Food & Wine.

 

I was unable to track down the original recipe from the Epcot International Food and Wine Festival, but I did find a great substitute on the Babble website. I made a few tweaks to make it my own and enlisted my favorite sous chef to help me out.

China’s Chicken Pot Stickers 

(adapted from Healthy Chicken Pot Stickers with Minted Soy Sauce by Macki West on Babble)

  • 1 lb ground chicken breast
  • 1 bag rainbow cole slaw mix
  • 1 red onion finely chopped
  • 2 minced garlic cloves
  • ¼ teaspoon ground ginger
  • 2 teaspoons soy sauce
  • 1 T vegetable oil
  • 1 package wonton wrappers
  • sesame oil

Heat vegetable oil in a large skillet over medium heat. Add ground chicken and brown, breaking up the pieces as you go along. (if a wooden spoon isn’t working, try a potato masher)

Meanwhile, chop rainbow slaw into finer pieces. Also chop red onion and garlic.
After the chicken is about done, add in rainbow slaw mix, red onion and garlic. Cook until veggies are tender.
Season with ginger and soy sauce. Stir to combine.

Once chicken mixture is done, set up a work station to begin assembling the pot stickers. Lay out a piece of wax paper and fill a small bowl with water. Place wonton wrappers on top of the wax paper and begin assembling.

 

To assemble, use a pastry brush or your finger to lightly moisten the edges of the wrapper. Place 1 tablespoon of filling in the middle. Fold one corner over to the other and press gently around the edges to seal.  Continue until all of your mixture is gone.
Heat a skillet with 1 Tablespoon of sesame oil. Brown the pot stickers on one side for about 2 minutes, then flip. Cook for a minute.
Add 1 teaspoon of water to the pan. Cover and cook for another minute.
Serve with a side of soy sauce as an appetizer or some fried rice to make a full meal.

Wow- these look surprisingly easy to do. (Of course, you have a wonderful line chef at your disposal!!) And I found the Hidden Mickey. ;)

Ha!! I didn't even notice it! You have a good eye! And yes she is the best little sous chef going. She's been cooking with me since she was a baby!

How fun! I've recently discovered I love Chinese food (before that I wouldn't try it because I was convinced I wouldn't like it). I will have to try making these at home sometime!

That's awesome! Now that you've conquered Chinese, I highly suggest Japanese next. Lots of rice, noodles and hibachi is a lot of fun!

I am definitely going to give this recipe a try. Pinning it! It's a great idea to go over the food choices from the festival before with young children. The choices can be overwhelming for adults. My son enjoys reviewing the offerings and deciding how he'll spend his snack credits at the festival.

Our daughter is just exiting her picky phase and is willing to try new things. I love how easy it was to have her help make these. She now says she can't wait to try the real thing when we go in November. Mission accomplished!
