Variations for this recipe
The nutritional information for this recipe was calculated based on using chicken potstickers. However, you can absolutely use pork potstickers for something heartier, or vegetable potstickers for a vegetarian dish.
If you’re in the mood to put a little more effort into your soup, you could always add a few more vegetables. Some baby bok choy leaves would be a great addition.
And if you need to reduce the sodium, you could skip the tamari or soy sauce and use homemade chicken broth. The potstickers will likely be pretty high in sodium, but this at least reduces the sodium in the broth.
This recipe is only for 1 serving of soup. I recommend serving it immediately, otherwise the potstickers can start to get soggy in the broth.
But if you’re feeling under the weather and just not up to finishing your soup, you can store it covered in the refrigerator for up to 3 days.
