This year, Lunar New Year falls on Feb 19, six weeks away from now. I can’t wait to start baking some of my favorite Lunar New Year goodies. I am also looking forward to eating some seriously good Chinese food: jiaozi, dumplings, potstickers, and so much more. Chinese New Year (check out all my Chinese New Year recipes) is my favorite time of the year!
I will be sharing some amazing Lunar New Year recipes with you in the next few weeks. Let’s start with chicken wontons. Wontons are little morsels of ground meat wrapped in a wheat-based wrapper. They are always dainty, appetizing, and the most amazing food ever! Wontons can be made into wonton soup, steamed shrimp wonton, Sichuan spicy red oil wonton, or fried wonton. There are also endless possibilities with the filling—ground pork (most common), chicken, turkey, vegetables, shrimp, seafood, or combinations.
These chicken wontons are filled with ground chicken, shrimp, and then deep-fried to golden perfection. Every bite is bursting with flavors. They can be eaten alone or with some dipping sauce. For this recipe, I serve it with Thai sweet chili sauce, which is perfect for the chicken wontons. Once you eat one, you just can’t stop until you finish everything so double up your portion and make a big batch because they will be gone in no time!
Many people don’t like deep-frying but there is no way to have great wontons if you don’t deep-fry. This chicken wontons recipe is seriously good and so easy and quick to make, a total of 20 minutes including wrapping the wontons. So, fire up your wok, pan, or deep-fryer because everyone is going to love these chicken wontons so much.
