Of all of my Trader Joe’s recipes, this is the one that I turn to the most if we need a quick weekend meal. It takes almost no prep, feels just nutritious enough (🥦🥦🥦), and super satisfying thanks to all of the sauces. Whatever you do, do not skimp on the sauces here. I’m a sauce fiend and my favorite combo is creamy Magnifisauce, Crunchy Chili Onion sauce, and a drizzle of Soyaki.

Let’s dive in and throw those potstickers in the air fryer!

Air Fryer Frozen Potstickers

Any variety of frozen potstickers can be cooked in the air fryer. They will come out extra crunchy around the edges of the potsticker wrapper and golden on all sides. The texture is different than when you cook them on the stovetop, but still delicious. Cook the potstickers directly from the freezer at 390°F for 8 to 10 minutes, shaking the basket halfway through cooking.

Build a Bowl

If you’ve already got the potstickers cooking, add some vegetables to the basket and cook everything together. Pre-chopped broccoli florets are my favorite, but chopped carrots or cauliflower florets will cook in the same amount of time alongside the potstickers. Transfer everything to serving bowls and top with your favorite Asian-inspired sauces.
