Chicken Wonton Tacos

Rated as 4.14 out of 5 Stars

"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."

  1. Mix cabbage, carrots, coleslaw dressing, vinegar, soy sauce, and teriyaki together in a bowl; refrigerate until flavors blend, 1 hour to overnight.
  2. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C).
  3. Heat sesame oil in a skillet over medium heat. Cook and stir ground chicken in the hot skillet until browned and crumbly, 5 to 7 minutes. Add stir-fry sauce, cover skillet, reduce heat to low, and simmer.
  4. Form wonton wrappers into taco shapes and arrange between the cups of an inverted muffin tin.
  5. Bake in the preheated oven until firm and lightly browned, 4 to 5 minutes. Spoon 2 to 3 tablespoons chicken mixture into each wonton taco shell and top with slaw.

Footnotes

  • Cook's Notes:
  • 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.
  • Tip
  • Aluminum foil helps keep food moist, ensures it cooks evenly, keeps leftovers fresh, and makes clean-up easy.

This is a great recipe. My wife and I love the chicken wonton tacos at applebees and this is the closest to it. I added some Sriracha hot chili sauce to it after simmering the chicken, great fla...

Made this for my hubby since he absolutely LOVES Applebee's version. Too much vinegar in slaw, would recommend white cabbage and 1/2 the red wine vinegar. Also, the chicken was good but needed ...

This is incredible but I did make some changes based on others reviews. 1/2 of the red wine vinegar in the coleslaw mix and I used the pre bagged mix with Marie's coleslaw dressing. I also used ...

Different & delicious! I didn't change a thing since this was the first time to make it. My husband ( who won't eat red cabbage) ate his, mine, then asked for more! Will make this again.

These are very good. I used egg roll wrappers for larger tacos.

Followed the suggestion of other reviewers and it came out very well, but it's not an exact replica of Applebee's wonton tacos if that's what you are looking for. It's decent, something differen...

Was good and easy to make. I bought a bag of rainbow slaw (carrots, broccoli, red cabbage) which made prep much easier. Slaw sauce was too vinegary for my taste. Also, while the wontons look f...
