This new decade marks the Year of the Metal Rat. A time to develop our abilities, be ingenious, and thinking outside the box. We like to every year start fresh with an open mind and embracing positive thoughts.

Happy Chinese new year the year of the metal rat

The colors for this year are silver, blue, and green, but red and yellow are also crucial as red symbolizes good fortune and joy and yellow good luck. Experts say that it is essential to start the new year with fresh flowers, citrus, and coins to attract good energy and prosperity too.

Celebrating Chinese New Year gives us that opportunity to rethink and reset. And since we started the year with freeze warnings thought about a good chicken potsticker soup cooked on the Instant Pot.

The result is a complete meal that is comforting and has all the ingredients of a balanced dish. A year ago, we discovered the Ling Ling brand and loved the product.

Now I buy it often as they have a diverse variety of Asian cuisine favorites, such as the spring rolls, egg rolls, the vegetarian version for the chicken potstickers, noodles, and fried rice. All good options for your Chinese New Year menu.

I can attest the Ling Ling brand produces excellent quality products, and I particularly love the egg and spring rolls and the chicken potstickers for serving as an appetizer or for making my version of a chicken potsticker soup. And I am not being paid to say this.

We chose for the Chicken Potsticker Soup fresh and frozen produce, such as Napa cabbage also called Chinese cabbage, carrots, fresh ginger, garlic, celery, white onion, and shitake mushrooms.

How to make the Chicken Potsticker Soup?

We chose fresh and frozen produce, such as Napa cabbage, also called Chinese cabbage, carrots, fresh ginger, garlic, celery, white onion, and shitake mushrooms.

The chicken potstickers come with a delicious sauce that we are using for garnishing the soup which adds a soy sauce with a sesame oil note — plus chopped green onions and serrano peppers to add another layer of fresh flavor.

Common mistakes to avoid when cooking the Chicken Potsticker Soup in the Instant Pot.

  • It is common to overfill the Instant Pot. The inner pot has a max line marked; however, this is not considering pressure cooking.
  • For pressure cooking maximum allowed is 2/3 full. But when cooking foods that expand, such as beans or grains, the maximum is 1/2 full.
  • Adding more liquid than the specified, you run the risk to overcooking the food or resulting in a bland dish.
  • When cooking vegetables, many of them release additional water. Consider this fact when thinking of adding more liquid than the necessary.
  • Don’t forget to set the venting knob to the sealing position, and including the silicone ring for proper use.
  • When using the “quick release” do it gradually and use a wooden spoon and oven mittens for safer operation.

Let’s enjoy the warmth of this chicken potsticker soup!

Serve the soup hot and include garnishes of your choice. We served with green onions and slices of serrano peppers. Few drops of sesame seed oil go well too, along with the delicious soy sauce included in the chicken potstickers bag.

I made this last night, and it was delicious, fresh, and so easy! My family loves Ling Ling Potstickers, so preparing them in a soup was fun and different, and making it in the IP was so simple. I didn’t have Napa cabbage, so I used green cabbage, which seemed to work fine. I was also missing the serrano pepper for garnish, so we just gave it a squirt of Sriracha for a bit of heat and brightness. Also, I saw a cup of water in the ingredient list, but not in the directions. I added it along with the broth, but I wanted to make sure it was supposed to be there. Thank you so much for this great recipe and your beautiful photos too!
