Chicken dumplings???

Piselidolci Aug 23, 2008 11:06 AM

Hey everyone! My GF has developed an intolerance to pork and anything related to it within the past 6-9 months so we've been looking for other alternatives.

Does anyone know where I can get frozen chicken dumplings that are similar to gyoza style dumplings made with the thin skins? I used to get the frozen ones from that little shack down on Mosco but since obviously they are made with pork....

And while I'm at it, how about chinese-style chicken dumplings, those with the thicker dumpling skins? Thanks!

    If you're looking to dine out, I had some fantastic chicken dumplings last night at Yakitori Toto, 55th b/w 7th and 8th. There are many chicken choices but the best thing I tasted was the dumpling. YUM!

      I like the gyoza-style chicken and vegetable dumplings from Trader Joe's. Very yummy, cheap and easy to make.

        Frozen chicken dumplings sold at the Chinese supermarkets are so good that some restaurants have been known to serve them. Obviously a Chinese dumpling restaurant wouldn't do this, but the chicken dumplings you order from the appetizer section of your neighborhood Chinese restaurant's menu could well be store bought.

      My favorite are the chicken mushroom from Vanessa's Dumplings on 14th. 20 per pack, i think they're about $7/8 bucks.
      I boil then pan fry. If you buy them already cooked there, they will only boil them, not fry.

        They have chicken-mushroom dumplings at Tasty Dumpling on Mulberry Street.

          I don't know the new name of the dumpling shop that was formerly known as Sun Dou on Grand and Mott but they carry frozen chicken dumplings.

            It's called Good Dumpling House now and it's in the Chow directory.

              There are lots of types of frozen gyoza at JAS Mart on 23rd St. between Park and Madison. If you're in the neighborhood, I'd look there.
