Chinese Dumpling Sauce


  • Lightly spray the bottom of the air fryer with oil.
  • Place the frozen potstickers in a single layer in the air fryer and lightly spray with oil.
  • Cook for 10-12 minutes at 375F degrees, removing the basket and shaking halfway through.
  • Serve with Chinese dumpling sauce (below).

Chinese Dumpling Sauce

  • Combine all the ingredients in a small bowl and let sit for 10 minutes before serving.
  • Can be stored in the fridge for several weeks.


  1. Don't thaw the potstickers before cooking - cook them straight from frozen.
  2. The second batch may cook faster than the first, so check on them periodically to avoid overcooking them.
  3. You can also toss the potstickers with oil in a bowl before adding to the air fryer.
  4. For a healthier option, eliminate the oil (note your potstickers will be dry).
  5. Add 1-2 teaspoons of chili oil to the dipping sauce for some spice.
  6. Let the sauce sit for 10 minutes before serving so the ginger flavor has time to infuse it. Can also be made in advance.
