Chef One was started in 1999 by Chinese Americans who sought to bring Asian flavors to the mainstream culinary scene. Their factory is currently located in Brooklyn, New York, The factory turns out an impressive 44,000 dumplings per hour. The dumplings and noodles are served in restaurants throughout New York. Chef One has been working on getting some of those thousands of dumplings to your table. The dumplings are now available in upwards of 250 Shoprite stores. The flavors feature Kale and Chicken, Vegetable, Kung Pao Chicken, and Thai Chicken to the line-up available in grocery stores.
The dumplings alone are delicious. The soft dough enveloping crunchy veggies and other flavorful fillings make this a great appetizer or an amazing lunch in my case. Of course, dumplings are great to dip but paired with an Asian inspired slaw makes them an even more complete dish. The crunchy slaw and the pillowy dough make a great bite! The best part is half of the work is done when using Chef One Dumplings,
If you are short on time placing the dumplings in a shallow bowl with a wet paper towel over them and microwaving according to package directions is just fine. In the event, you have a couple of minutes after microwaving, sauté them quickly in some sesame oil to brown them making them even more delicious!
