Chicken Wonton Tacos
Light and tasty, these make a great appetizer or a quick and easy main dish! Kids love them! Finally a dish that makes use of ground chicken but not so far-fetched. I bake the wonton wrappers to save time and it eliminates most of the fat. Although time-consuming, you can fry wrappers in sesame or olive oil for the extra flaky shells, folded in a triangle for about 1 minute on each side. I loved the ones at Applebee's® and decided to attempt a home version. I was extremely pleased with the healthier version! Top tacos with cilantro, red onion, or sweet onion, if desired. Serve lime wedges on the side.
Chicken breast or turkey can be substituted for the ground chicken, if desired.
Green cabbage can be used in place of the red cabbage.
Plain yogurt can be used in place of the coleslaw dressing. Olive oil can replace sesame oil, if desired.
For spicy option, use red pepper flakes as desired in meat mixture.
