Steamed Chicken Soup Dumplings

Steamed Chicken Soup Dumplings

March 20, 2017—Fearlessly Archived—Still a fun read; price & availability may have changed. 

Trader Joe’s Steamed Chicken Soup Dumplings are just that: soft dumplings filled with chicken and a rich, savory broth. They debuted last year, and they’ve proven themselves worthy of a repeat appearance in the Fearless Flyer. They come in a microwavable tray, and heat in two minutes or less. Once they’re heated through, we recommend some simple steps to amplify your enjoyment. First, you carefully remove them from the tray, taking care not to puncture the dough. This is important because you really don’t want to lose the soup inside. Yet. Place a Soup Dumpling on a large spoon and bite a small hole, big enough to let the gingery broth run out into the spoon – this is the step where you want the soup to come out, not before. Let them cool for just a bit (they’ll come out of the microwave very hot). And then, finally, put the whole thing – spoon, soup, dumpling – into your mouth and let the flavors, textures, and aromas treat you to that same dim sum experience that began our quest in the first place.

We haven’t seen dumplings like this in any other stores, and they’re challenging to find even in dim sum restaurants. You’ll find them in the freezers at Trader Joe’s, where we’re selling each six ounce box of six for $2.99, every day. And that’s just an incredible value.
