Cooking Thursday

Thursday's almost here and that means it's time to share another recipe. If you want to see more, visit Sandra at Diary of a SAHM.

Here's a little different appetizer. They are really good!

Crispy Chicken Wontons
8 ounces cream cheese
3 tablespoons mild green chili, diced
1 tablespoon jalapeno, diced
1/8 cup seasoned bread crumbs
1/4 teaspoon garlic powder
1/2 teaspoon salt
2 cups cooked chicken breast, diced finely
1 pkg wonton wrappers
vegetable oil for frying
In large bowl, combine cream cheese, chili, jalapeno, breadcrumbs, garlic, salt and chicken. Mix well.
Wontons may be made in two ways: place 2 teaspoons of filling in center of wrapper, moisten one side with egg white to seal and roll. This makes a larger size, long roll.
Or, place 1 teaspoon in center of wrapper, moisten one side with egg white and fold diagonally to make a triangle. You will have more appetizers, smaller in size.
Press edges together and seal. In deep saute' pan on high, heat oil and fry wontons until golden, about 1 and 1/2 minutes. These may be served immediately or frozen and microwaved or reheated in oven. They reheat well.
Serve with sweet and sour sauce.

Oh my gosh Mari! These look SO wonderful. I think we are going to have a snow day tomorrow and I SO want to whip these up!

Those look yummy. I'm not much of an oriental food eater...only a couple of things. Now you make egg rolls like the oriental lady in Illinois who just whipped them up and didn't have a recipe to give any of us, and you will be my best friend for LIFE!

I've never made anything like that. But these look like fun to make! I'm betting my oldest would love them!
Where do you find the wonton wrappers? And what kind of package do they come in?

Renee said...

These look and sound delicious!

Just where do you find these amazing recipes! Now this sounds great with chicken and steamed veggies over white rice.

Be sure you stop by today for a last minute opportunity to participate in two giveaways for tomorrow.

Now all I have to do is find gluten-free wonton wraps and use gluten-free bread crumbs...*sigh* I don't know how long we're going to last over here on this new diet.

The first three ingredients are my all time favorite appetizer ingredients! I would love to try these sometime!

Connie said...
