These tasty little wonton appetizers make interesting party snacks, or serve them as an appetizer before a special meal.

Ingredients:

  • 1 cup cooked diced chicken
  • 1 teaspoon Cajun seasoning
  • 3 green onions with about 3 to 4 inches of green, coarsely chopped
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • Dash black pepper
  • 3 tablespoons purchased or homemade barbecue sauce
  • 24 to 30 wonton wrappers
  • Oil for deep frying
  • Barbecue sauce for dipping

Preparation:

In a food processor, a food chopper, or by hand, finely mince the chicken and onions with seasonings. Add 3 tablespoons of barbecue sauce and process or mix well to combine. Put 1 teaspoon of the chicken mixture in the center of a wonton wrapper. Lightly brush water all around the edge of the wrapper. Fold over and press the edge all around to seal or follow instructions on the wonton wrapper insert for folding. Keep filled wontons covered with a damp dish towel to keep them from drying out, and keep the unused wrappers covered.

Heat oil in a deep fryer to 370°. Fry the filled wontons, 3 or 4 at a time, until golden brown. Transfer to paper towel-lined plate and keep warm. Serve with barbecue sauce.
Makes about 2 to 2 1/2 dozen appetizers.
