Frozen potsticker dumplings in the air fryer

I truly love potstickers, they are a great appetizer to any meal. The biggest issue I have is that I struggle to steam them, and they probably should be steamed.

But if you don’t want to steam, and you still want them hot, you can do what I did and throw them into the air fryer. Just know that they will not come out as soft and sticky as they would at a restaurant, as air frying is NOT the same as steaming. But alas, that is perfectly okay by me, because, I prefer a slightly browned pot sticker anyway, and that is what you will get when cooking dumplings in the air fryer.
