These Costco chicken dumplings are tasty with a unique sesame sauce!
Today I’m reviewing the Costco Summ! Sesame Ginger Chicken Gyoza Dumplings from Costco. I’ve pretty much reviewed every potsticker, gyoza, spring roll and egg roll I can find at Costco!
Other similar products that Costco carries are the Costco Synear Soup Dumplings, Costco Siwin Chicken Potstickers, Costco Summ! Sweet and Sour Chicken Spring Rolls, Costco Bibigo Beef Bulgogi Mandu, Costco Bibigo Steamed Dumplings and the Costco Bibigo Chicken & Cilantro Wontons.
Location in Store
You can find these Costco gyoza dumplings in the refrigerated section at Costco near all the other refrigerated (not frozen) appetizers and things like tofu, sauerkraut and kimchi. The item number is 396203.
I really like the gyoza dumplings, they’re chewy like any dumpling and have lots of chicken in the filling. I also find them meatier than other gyoza dumplings. These are filled with chicken, cabbage, carrots, sesame and ginger.
The gyoza dumplings are really flavorful with equal amounts of sesame and ginger taste. I find that the flavors of sesame and ginger dominate but not in a bad way! Compared to other gyoza dumpling sauces, this sauce is very unique.
The sauce is tangy, very salty and you can really taste the vinegar. I don’t love the sauce I think I would rather just have soy sauce because I find that the sauce is a bit overpowering.
The cost of the Costco Summ! Sesame Ginger Chicken Gyoza Dumplings is $9.99 Canadian for a 900 gram package of dumplings. There are two separate packs of dumplings with two sauces in each pack. Each pack has 18 dumplings.
You can pan fry, boil or microwave the gyoza. I decided to pan fry mine and they turned out really nice. Golden crispy but still soft and chewy. These make an amazing side dish or appetizer. They need to be kept refrigerated or if you can’t use them by the best before date you can also freeze them. The best before date is just over a month from the date I purchased the gyoza dumplings.
Four gyoza dumplings with sauce is 170 calories, five grams of fat, 20 grams of carbohydrates, one gram of fibre, one gram of sugar, eight grams of protein and 300 mg of sodium. That’s not that many calories, carbohydrates or fat for four gyoza dumplings! The eight grams of protein is also nice to see!
The ingredients are what I would expect to see listed for a store bought gyoza dumpling. These contain sesame, soy and wheat.
Taste: The dumplings are a 8 and the sauce is a 6 out of 10.
Give it a try!
I enjoyed the dumplings! Next time I’ll have them with just soy sauce but I think a lot of individuals would also enjoy the dipping sauce they come with.
Have you tried these? What did you think of them?

i picked these up from costco the other day and the directions on the box are different from these ones and they don’t make sense. It says ‘for pan fried gyoza, place 8-12 into a nonstick fry pan and then add 1 inch of water and cook on high till water is evaporated [approx 5 min]. 18 min later, i still have water in the fry pan! so i uncovered it and cooked it for another 5 min before the water was gone and then another 5 min till they were nicely fried. That’s a huge difference!
My Costco is still carrying them. I just bought 3 packages. These are AWESOME!! Although I must agree with the review in the sauce…don’t care for it…prefer using soy sauce. Quick, delicious and an awesome snack or with dinner.
Thanks for posting this. I had thrown out the packaging and realized the cooking instructions were on there!
We noted a harsh smell while cooking. They are fresh as per expired date but wondered if smell is normal ?
Yes it can be! I know my house smells for days after making these.
Our Costco also has them. We tried them for the first time today and they were delicious, fried according to package directions. I hear you sometimes have to search for items since they may not be where you used to find them in the store.
I liked these dumplings . But.
My concern is: Is the second package still good after being in my fridge for I month.
I wouldn’t eat chicken that has been in my fridge for a month.
Are they still before the best before date?
Someone said they can be frozen so I’m going to try that.
Summ are the best Dumplings. Costco is no longer carrying them which is a shame need to know where I could buy them thank you
Really? We have lots at my Costco still.
