Chicken Wonton Tacos

Recipe By:OdaMae
“Light and tasty, these make a great appetizer or a quick and easy main dish! Kids love them! Finally a dish that makes use of ground chicken but not so far-fetched. I bake the wonton wrappers to save time and it eliminates most of the fat. Although time-consuming, you can fry wrappers in sesame or olive oil for the extra flaky shells, folded in a triangle for about 1 minute on each side. I loved the ones at Applebee’s(R) and decided to attempt a home version. I was extremely pleased with the healthier version! Top tacos with cilantro, red onion, or sweet onion, if desired. Serve lime wedges on the side.”

Ingredients

  • 1/3 head red cabbage, sliced and chopped
  • 4 small carrots, peeled and grated
  • 1/4 cup coleslaw dressing
  • 1/4 cup red wine vinegar
  • 2 tablespoons soy sauce
  • 2 tablespoons teriyaki sauce
  • 2 tablespoons sesame oil
  • 1 pound ground chicken
  • 1/4 cup stir-fry sauce

  1. Mix cabbage, carrots, coleslaw dressing, vinegar, soy sauce, and teriyaki together in a bowl; refrigerate until flavors blend, 1 hour to overnight.
  2. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C).
  3. Heat sesame oil in a skillet over medium heat. Cook and stir ground chicken in the hot skillet until browned and crumbly, 5 to 7 minutes. Add stir-fry sauce, cover skillet, reduce heat to low, and simmer.
  4. Form wonton wrappers into taco shapes and arrange between the cups of an inverted muffin tin.
