Chicken Gyoza

Chicken Gyoza
5 stars rating if you like it!

Gyoza is so popular globally, and it’s quick and easy to make. You can make your own unique filling too. Try making these Japanese-inspired chicken dumplings at home, and you will have your family and friends hooked. I must say homemade gyoza are the next level. You can even make up a batch and freeze them for a rainy day, and you don’t even need to defrost them before cooking. The crispy golden base is GBD golden brown and delicious; the meaty filling sings out and is enhanced by the flavorful chi-yu as it adds even more depth to the filling. I haven’t even mentioned the sesame soy dipping sauce yet! Gyoza is traditionally a Japanese side dish, but I say make up a whole big batch and your family will be feasting on the lot, meal over.
