Trader Joe’s Chicken and Mushroom Pelmeni Reviews

Chicken and Mushroom Pelmeni: 5/10

Pelmeni are dumplings of the Russian cuisine. These chicken and mushroom Pelmenis have a doughy dumpling casing and are filled with chicken, mushrooms, and lots of dill. I will say, I am not the biggest fan of dill and felt that there was way too much of it and it overpowered any other flavor in these dumplings. Also, the chicken had a spongy texture and was ground together with the other ingredients in a way which I did not enjoy. I wish the ingredients were more distinct and separated! I know this is one of those dishes I would’ve loved fresh and with less dill, but unfortunately I would not buy this frozen version again. I did love the dough dumpling case however. Each bag is $3.99.

Have you tried these yet? What did you think?

  1. I’m Russian and I love Pelmeni. These do not taste anything like the Pelmeni I’ve grown up eating! I didn’t like the strong (but not yummy) dill flavor either and the chicken was a miss. Homemade pork version is easy and SO much better.
