Easy Chicken Wontons

    20 min

    This is an easy way to use up small amounts of leftover chicken, and no one fights over white or dark meat! Just wrap leftover chicken in wonton wrappers and bake until crispy. You can serve them plain or with soy sauce or sweet chilli sauce. You can buy wonton wrappers at Chinese and Asian supermarkets.

    This was very plain. But WHAT A TERRRIFIC IDEA! I did what other reviewers said-stuffed with other ingredients. The best so far was shredded chicken, with a mix of sour cream, shredded monterey jack cheese, ranch dressing, finely chopped yellow peppers, onion and chili powder.YUM!  -  26 Sep 2002  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)


    This was a very easy recipe. I used beef and refried beans for the filling. It was very good and makes great snacks to heat in the microwave for later.  -  12 Jul 2001  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)


    Very quick and easy - we put a bit of cream cheese in each wonton too to yum it up a bit.  -  01 Dec 2001  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
