About this Recipe

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.
