Equipment

  • Knife
  • Spoon or spatula for mixing
  • Deep frying pan or pot
  • Slotted spoon
  • Paper towels
  • Baking sheet (if freezing wontons)

Ingredients

For the filling:

  • 1 pound ground chicken
  • 2 cloves garlic minced
  • 1 tablespoon ginger minced
  • 2 green onions finely chopped
  • 1 tablespoon soy sauce
  • 1 teaspoon sesame oil
  • ½ teaspoon salt
  • ¼ teaspoon black pepper
  • ½ cup finely shredded cabbage optional
  • 1 tablespoon cornstarch optional, for binding

For assembling:

  • Wonton wrappers store-bought or homemade
  • Water for sealing wontons

For frying:

  • Vegetable oil

For serving (optional):

  • Soy sauce
  • Sweet chili sauce
  • Chopped green onions

Instructions

Prepare the Filling:

  • In a large mixing bowl, combine the ground chicken, minced garlic, minced ginger, chopped green onions, soy sauce, sesame oil, salt, and black pepper. Mix well until everything is evenly distributed.
  • If using cabbage, add it to the mixture and combine. The cabbage adds extra crunch and flavor to the filling.
  • If the mixture seems too loose, you can add a tablespoon of cornstarch to help bind it together.

Assemble the Wontons:

  • Take a wonton wrapper and place it on a clean, dry surface.
  • Spoon about a teaspoon of the chicken filling into the center of the wrapper.
  • Dip your finger into some water and moisten the edges of the wrapper.
  • Fold the wrapper in half diagonally to form a triangle, pressing the edges firmly to seal. Make sure there are no air pockets trapped inside.
  • Optionally, you can create different shapes like simple triangles or traditional purse shapes by bringing the corners together and sealing them.

Fry the Wontons:

  • Heat vegetable oil in a deep frying pan or pot over medium heat.
  • Once the oil is hot (around 350°F/175°C), carefully add the wontons in batches, making sure not to overcrowd the pan.
  • Fry the wontons for 2-3 minutes on each side, or until they turn golden brown and crispy.
  • Use a slotted spoon to remove the cooked wontons from the oil and place them on a paper towel-lined plate to drain excess oil.

Serve and Enjoy:

  • Serve the chicken wontons hot with your favorite dipping sauces such as soy sauce, sweet chili sauce, or a combination of both.
  • Garnish with chopped green onions for added freshness and color.
  • Enjoy these delicious homemade chicken wontons as an appetizer, snack, or part of a meal.

Notes

  • You can make the filling ahead of time and store it in the refrigerator for up to 24 hours before assembling the wontons.
  • Freeze any leftover uncooked wontons on a baking sheet in a single layer, then transfer them to a freezer bag once they're frozen solid. They can be fried directly from frozen when needed.
  • Experiment with different dipping sauces to find your favorite flavor combination.
With this easy recipe, you can create irresistible chicken wontons that are perfect for any occasion. Enjoy making and sharing these delightful treats with your family and friends!
