What is BUBBL'R? And what are antioxidants?

BUBBL'R is an antioxidant sparkling water that features natural flavors, no artificial sweeteners, and naturally sourced caffeine.

Antioxidants are substances that prevent oxidation, which is a chemical reaction that can produce free radicals. Antioxidants are the main substance in your body used to fight against free radicals.

Can dumplings be made ahead?

Dumplings are awesome to make ahead since they can be a labor of love to make a bunch of them for a big crowd. You can make them up to 2 days in advance. Store them in single layers, separating each layer with parchment paper, then cook as directed in the recipe box!

What makes BUBBL'R different from other sparkling waters?

  • immune support
  • low glycemic
  • gluten free
  • soy free
  • vegan

Where does the natural caffeine in BUBBL'R come from?

The natural caffeine in BUBBL’R comes from guarana seed extract.

How to store and reheat leftover dumplings?

Store any leftover dumplings in an airtight container in a single layer, separating each layer with parchment paper to prevent them sticking together.

To reheat, add the desired amount of dumplings to a shallow bowl or microwave sage dish. Add 1-2 tablespoons of water, cover with a damp paper towel, and microwave 2 minutes.

You can also reheat on the stovetop (my preferred method) using the same original method in the recipe details!

Why serve dumplings with yogurt?

Dumplings exist in many different forms with both savory and sweet fillings all over the world! The Swedish Pitepalt is filled with meat and dipped in loganberry ham and butter. The famous ravioli is tossed in a cheesy tomato sauce. And (inspired in this recipe) the Turkish have there own version of dumplings that are often served with one of three sauces: a garlic yogurt, brown butter, and/or caramelized tomato sauce.

So, while it may not be traditional to the origin of dumplings, I think that's what makes cooking of fun at home... being able to try out new methods and ingredients to fit your cravings and personal tastebuds!

Of course, the yogurt here is optional, but why not give it a try? You never know what you will or will not like until you give a try 😉

Substitutes for the ground chicken to make the dumplings vegan:

  • Firm Tofu
  • Cabbage
  • Black Bean & Tofu
  • Shredded Carrots & Mushrooms

Chicken & Bok Choy Dumplings with Chili Crisp Sauce



Servings: 4

For the Dumplings:

  • BUBBL’R Triple Berry Breez’r, for serving
  • 1 lb. Ground Chicken
  • 1 large Bok Choy, finely chopped
  • 2 Garlic Cloves, minced
  • ¼ cup Parsley, chopped
  • 1 tbsp. Olive Oil
  • ¼ cup Sesame Seeds
  • 23-25 Wonton Wrappers / Round Dumpling Wrappers

For the Chili Crisp Sauce:

  • (Optional) Plain Greek Yogurt, for serving
  • 1/3 cup Soy Sauce
  • ¼ cup Honey
  • 1 tbsp. Chili Crisp, or to taste
  • 1 tbsp. Olive Oil
  • 1 tbsp. Fresh Ginger, minced
  • 2 Garlic Cloves, minced


  1. In a skillet over Medium High Heat, add the olive oil to warm up for 1 minute.
  2. Add the ground chicken, garlic, parsley, and bok choy to sauté until the chicken is fully cooked, about 8-10 minutes.
  3. Brush the edges of a dumpling with water. Add about 1 tablespoon of the chicken mix to the center of the dumpling. Bring up the four corners, pinching the edges together to seal. (See video for visual instructions.)
  4. Dip the very bottom of the dumpling in water, then dip in a shallow bowl with sesame seeds. Place on a plate. Repeat the process with remaining wrappers.
  5. Add a little olive oil to a large nonstick skillet over medium high heat. Add the dumplings to cook for 2-3 minutes, so that the sesame seeds on bottom become toasted. Add ¼ cup water, cover quickly with a lid, and steam on Low heat for 4-5 minutes.
  6. In the meantime, make the sauce by combining all ingredients into a small saucepan. Place the saucepan over medium high heat. Bring to a boil, then simmer 3 minutes.
  7. Enjoy the dumplings warm with the chili crisp sauce. Optional: Plate with a thin spread of plain Greek yogurt.
  8. Serve with BUBBL’R Triple Berry Breez’r for a complimentary refreshment!
