This is a tremendously busy weekday dinner recipe!  It’s so easy, and generally, you will only maybe have to purchase the Asian Dumplings ( potstickers) at the store – the rest of the ingredients you will probably have in your fridge, freezer, and cupboards.

I love that this Recipe is so versatile, and you can almost use up any leftover veggies you have. I love that if you’re in a huge hurry – frozen veggies can do in a pinch and cut your cooking time in half.

Adults and Kids alike will be begging for seconds! It’s so versatile  – and great to make on those kids-packed activity nights when you are running in a few directions!

You can swap out Potstickers for other known things like Asian Dumplings or even frozen wontons.
