Chicken Gyoza with Sautéed Greens

What You’ll Use: Frozen gyoza, Chopped greens, and Dipping sauce. Re-heating Instructions: In a nonstick frying pan over medium heat, warm 1 tablespoon vegetable oil. Add the frozen gyoza and cook undisturbed until browned on the bottom, 2 to 3 minutes. Add ½ cup water, cover the pan, and steam until the water is nearly gone and the wrappers are soft and the filling is firm, 3 to 5 minutes. Remove the lid and continue to cook until crisp, 1 to 2 minutes longer. Transfer the gyoza to plates. Wipe out the pan, return it to medium heat, and warm 1 tablespoon vegetable oil. Add the chopped greens, season with salt, and sauté until just wilted, 1 minute. Add the greens to the plates and serve warm, with the dipping sauce on the side.

Step 1

To prep the sweet potatoes, preheat the oven to 475°F. Line a sheet pan with parchment or foil. Rub the sweet potatoes with olive oil, season with salt, and prick with a fork. Place the sweet potatoes on the prepared pan and bake until soft, 35 to 40 minutes, depending on size. Let cool, transfer to an airtight container, and refrigerate.

Step 2

To prep the curry, in a large saucepan over medium-low heat, warm the curry with 1 cup water, stirring occasionally to avoid sticking. Bring a second pot full of salted water to a simmer. Trim the bok choy and slice the leaves into ribbons. Roll half of the chicken mix into 9 meatballs about 2 inches in diameter and set on a plate.

Step 3

Add the meatballs to the simmering water and poach until firm, 6 to 8 minutes. Using a slotted spoon, transfer the meatballs to the curry. Add the bok choy to the simmering water and poach until tender-crisp, 1 minute. Transfer to the curry. Remove the curry from the heat, add the juice of ½ lime, and season to taste with fish sauce. Let cool, transfer to an airtight container, and refrigerate.

Step 4

To prep the gyoza, place a wrapper on a work surface. Place a spoonful of the remaining half of the chicken mix in the center. Dip your finger into water and wet the outer edge of the wrapper. Fold the wrapper in half and pinch to seal. You can either fold it over simply to make a half moon, or crimp the edges, stand it upright, and curve it into a crescent, if you’re a dumpling pro. Repeat with the remaining wrappers and filling. Space out the dumplings on a sheet pan and freeze, before transferring to a zippered bag or airtight container and returning to the freezer.

Step 5

Roughly chop the greens. Transfer to a zippered bag or airtight container and refrigerate. Chop a handful of green onions. Chop 2 cloves of garlic.

Step 6

To make the dipping sauce, in a small bowl, stir together ¼ cup soy sauce, the green onions, and the garlic. Add 2 tablespoons rice vinegar and ½ teaspoon sesame oil, if you have any on hand. Transfer to an airtight container and store in the refrigerator.


The chicken meatball mix may arrive frozen for freshness. Store it in the refrigerator to defrost before cooking. If you need to defrost it same day, place the sealed package in a bowl of cold water, and leave the tap running in a thin stream for about 30 minutes. Depending on seasonal availability, you might receive mizuna, tatsoi, or chrysanthemum greens, or in some cases baby spinach.
