Trader Joe's Chicken Gyoza Potstickers Review

Trader Joes Chicken Gyoza PotstickersWhen I read the package directions on Trader Joe's Chicken Gyoza Potstickers, I opted to skip the stovetop directions of pan-frying the gyoza in favor of the microwave directions. However, even covering the potstickers with a wet paper towel, they came out a bit dry and rubbery in places. I think the healthiest bet would be to steam these so that they're moist but not oily.

NUTRITION FACTS
Serving Size: 140 grams (7 potstickers)
Calories: 230
Total Fat: 3.5 grams, 5%
Saturated Fat: 0.5 gram, 3%
Sodium: 640 mg, 27%
Carbohydrates: 36 grams
Fiber: 2 grams, 7%
Sugars: 2 grams
Protein: 13 grams

The flavor is a tasty sweet and sour blend, and the filling is definitely more chicken-based than vegetable. However, the taste isn't very complex, having really just a generic and standard flavor - I think Trader Joe's could have kicked this up with a bit of lemongrass or coconut. There is the slightest touch of spice, but these are certainly not spicy. However, they aren't bland enough to require me to use dipping sauce - score one for not needing to add more calories!

Each sizeable serving of 7 Trader Joe's Chicken Gyoza Potstickers (140 grams) provides 230 calories, 5% of the daily value for total fat, 0.5 grams of which is saturated fat, 27% of daily value for sodium (yikes - Trader Joes Chicken Gyoza Potstickers).

A serving also contains 36 grams of carbohydrates of which 2 grams are dietary fiber (7% of DV) and 2 grams are sugar. Finally, there is also 13 grams of protein as well as 15% of the RDA for both Vitamin C and iron.

Would I buy these again? Perhaps. The one pound bag (three large servings) cost me only $2.99, but they're not really anything special. Nutritionally, they're a bit lower in fat than most potstickers, but the flavor isn't really anything to write home about.
