These are always a hit at any party I take them to! They offer a classic flavor with a twist! Plus, the filling is hard to mess up.

Directions

  • Melt the butter in a large skillet over medium heat. Cook the celery in the melted butter until slightly soft, about 5 minutes; transfer to a large mixing bowl. Add the chicken, hot sauce, and Cheddar cheese to the cooked celery and mix thoroughly. Season with salt and pepper.

  • Separate and place the wonton wrappers onto your work surface. Spoon about 1 tablespoon of the chicken mixture onto the center of each wrapper. Use your finger or a pastry brush to lightly moisten the edges of the wonton wrappers with water. Fold one corner of the wrapper over the filling onto the opposite corner to form a triangle. Press the edges together to seal.

  • Heat the oil in a deep-fryer or deep pan to 365 degrees F (185 degrees C). Deep-fry several wontons at a time, turning as needed, until lightly browned. Remove to drain on paper towels. Serve hot.

I put this filling inside phyllo dough rolled it up brushed with a little melted butter and baked at 350 for 11 minutes. (Next time I would go 13 or else spray them with PAM spray also to crisp them faster.) My apologies to the original poster as what I did with their filling no longer constitutes a wonton but the filling is delish:-) I missed the flavor of blue cheese in these and would add that next time or else serve with blue cheese dressing to dip.

It was a little dry. If you add the cream cheese to the mixture and some cheddar cheese and then put it into the wonton wrappers and fry them they are much more tasty and moist. Read More

These are very good and not too difficult to make. They are a little time consuming especially if you fold the wrappers "wonton style". I skipped the celery since I have picky people in the house. One full tablespoon of filling is a LOT. I used 1/2 tablespoon and that was plenty. I was still able to fold the wontons without them bursting. Read More

Scaled the recipe down to make 12 wontons...eating them now for lunch. I think the flavor is good but they are a little on the dry side. The only thing I did differently was add bleu cheese in place of the cheddar. Next time I will try what the other reviewer said and add cream cheese to the mixture. Read More

These were a hit! I did not have a deep fryer so I just fried them in oil on the stove top. For a healthy version I used Pam instead of oil. Read More
