Chicken wontons – easiest and the best fried chicken wontons ever! Takes 20 mins to make including wrapping. Super crispy and yummy, get the easy recipe.
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!
Chicken Wontons Recipe
Makes 12 | Prep Time: 15 Minutes | Cook Time: 5 Minutes
1/2 lb ground chicken
1/4 lb shrimp, chopped into small pieces
1 stalk scallion, cut into rings
1/2 teaspoon cornstarch
1/4 teaspoon salt
1 dash fish sauce, optional
1/2 teaspoon sesame oil
3 dashes ground white pepper
12 pieces wonton wrappers
Water, for sealing
Oil, for deep frying
3 tablespoons Thai sweet chili sauce
2 teaspoons lime juice
1 tablespoon chopped cilantro leaves
Pinch of white sesame seeds
In a bowl, mix the ground chicken, shrimp, scallion and cornstarch until well combined. Add the salt, fish sauce, sesame oil and white pepper. Stir to mix well. Set aside.
Wrap the wontons with the wonton wrappers by placing a piece of the wonton wrapper on your palm. Add 1/2 tablespoon of the filling in the middle of the wrapper. Dip your index finger into some water and trace it on the outer edges of the wonton wrapper. Fold and pinch the edges of the wonton wrapper up and seal the wonton tight so there is no opening at the top and the wonton is securely enclosed. Watch the video below to learn how to wrap wontons.
Heat up some cooking oil in a wok or frying pan and deep fry the wontons until golden brown. Serve hot with sweet chili sauce or eat plain.
