The perfect party appetizer that your guests won't be able to get enough of.
|2 cups||(500 mL) Cooked and chopped Maple Leaf Prime Naturally® Chicken|
|.5 cup||(80 mL) Water chestnuts, chopped|
|2||Green onions, chopped|
|1 tsp||(5 mL) Orange zest|
|1 tsp||(5 mL) Freshly grated gingerroot|
|3 tbsp||(45 mL) Sweet soy sauce|
|2 tsp||(10 mL) Sambal Oelek|
|1 tsp||(5 mL) Cornstarch|
|1 lb||(500 g) (30 pieces) Wonton wrappers|
|3 cups||to 4, (750 mL-1 L) Peanut oil for frying|
COMBINE chicken, water chestnuts, green onion, orange zest, ginger, sweet soy sauce and sambal oelek in a medium bowl. Whisk cornstarch into 1/3 cup (80 mL) of cold water in a small bowl and set aside.
ASSEMBLE wontons one at a time by placing a 1 tsp (5 mL) of chicken mixture in the center of each wonton wrapper. Using a pastry brush, lightly brush the edges of the wonton wrapper with cornstarch mixture. Fold the wonton around the filling to create a triangle and press the edges to seal. Place on a baking sheet and cover with a damp towel to prevent drying out. Repeat with remaining wontons.
HEAT oil in a large pot or deep fryer over medium-high heat to 350°F (180°C). Reduce heat to medium and maintain temperature. Working in batches, fry wontons until golden brown and crisp on both sides, about 2-3 minutes. Serve with Asian dipping sauces.
Freeze uncooked wontons and fry from frozen.
Try steaming wontons for a healthier version.
