One of my favorite types of food to cook is elegant little bite-sized appetizers.
I imagine them being handed out on trays at a classy event and snacked on between interesting conversations.
These wonton bites fit the bill perfectly. Light, delicate food, pretty presentation, and you can eat the bowl – what more could you ask for?
The start of the chicken salad.
After shredding up the chicken, a dressing of mayo, soy sauce, lime juice, and sriracha is added. I like to add it while the chicken is still hot so it really absorbs all the flavors.
Then the veggies are added, and this simple chicken salad is complete! This would be great over lettuce or in a sandwich, but we have bigger plans for it today.
The wonton cups are easy. You can find these fresh wonton wrappers at any grocery store.
Be sure to spray lots of oil in the mini muffin tins, but also on and around the wontons after you place them. They came out great; a perfect little bowl shape at the bottom, with flavorful browned edges at the tips.
Then just go ahead and stuff them!
Make these for your next event and impress your friends with your elegant food style!
