Do you love to order crispy Chicken Wontons when you see them on a menu as much as I do? They are actually quite simple to make at home.
Because these fry up so quickly, they do not have the chance to soak up a lot of oil. Especially if you have the oil at the correct temperature. So frying and baking are about the same amount of calories in this case.
But, more often than not I opt for baking since I do not like the mess of frying at home. Directions for both are below.

Fried or Baked Chicken Wontons
- 1 lb minced chicken or pork
- 1 teaspoon salt
- ½ teaspoon sesame seed oil (optional)
- 2 teaspoon corn starch
- ¼ teaspoon white pepper
- 1 package won ton wrappers
- Oil for frying
- Mix meat, salt, sesame oil, corn starch and white pepper.
- Lay out a won ton wrapper. Place about 1 teaspoon meat mixture in the center.
- Brush a little water on the wrapper, around the meat to the edges. Bring all the sides of the wrapper up around the meat. Pinch together to seal. Or fold the wrapper diagonally to form triangles.
- Continue wrapping until all meat is used.
- To fry: In a deep frying pan, heat oil to 350 F. Place won tons into hot oil. Fry till wrappers are golden. Remove from oil, drain on plate or colander lined with paper towels.
- To bake (works best with triangles): Preheat oven to 400 F. Place wonton on wire rack placed on top of a rimmed cooking sheet. Spray with cooking spray. Bake for 10 minutes, then turn over and continue baking until brown.
- Serve as is, with sweet chili sauce, or sriracha sauce if preferred.
