Baked Chicken and Vegetable Wontons

You could put almost any vegetable inside of these delicious wontons and I would gladly eat it!  This is one of my absolute favorite ways to eat leftover chicken and any veggies that I have in the fridge (or new ones I'd like to try!)  The sauce really "makes" these wontons - it's the same sauce I use for my baked egg rolls.  Some of the ingredients aren't "everyday" ingredients that you'd have on hand, but they are worth keeping in your kitchen.  We use all of the ingredients now...more that you would think.  Enjoy these tasty treats!
Best dishes and yummy dreams!


Baked Chicken and Vegetable Wontons
-A Little Mommy Original 

Canola oil

Wonton filling 
(use anything you prefer)
2 c. shredded chicken
1 1/2 c. chopped broccoli
2-3 c. shredded cabbage
1 c. shredded spinach
1 c. shredded carrots
3 garlic cloves, minced
2 chopped scallions

Sauce for the filling
1/8 c. soy sauce
1/8 c. chicken stock
1/2 tsp. sesame oil
1 tsp. sugar
1 tsp. Sriracha (hot sauce)
2 tbsp. Duck Sauce
2 tsp. Tiger Sauce
1 tbsp. oyster sauce

1.  Heat a wok with 1 tbsp. oil.
2.  Add the veggies and cook until tender (do not add the garlic and scallions yet).
3.  Add the garlic, scallions, and cooked chicken.  Heat through.
4.  Add the sauce to the filling and stir well.
5.  Take the mixture off the the heat and set aside. 
Preheat the oven to 375 degrees. 
6.  Take out the wonton wrappers and use two wrappers for each wonton.  
7.  Lay the first wrapper down and place a tbsp. of the mixture in the middle of the wonton wrapper.
8.  Fold the opposite corners into the middle to make a square shape.

(Dip your finger in a small bowl of water and touch the corners to get the wrappers to stick.)  
9.  Use another wonton wrapper and repeat the process with the first seam face down.

10.  Line the wontons on a baking sheet and spray them with olive oil spray, sprinkle with sea salt, and bake until golden brown.  (15 minutes, broil for 2 minutes)
(I rolled some too because my daughter will eat anything that's rolled like a taquito!)

Thanks for reading, loves! xo
