Thai Chicken Appetizer: Mini Wonton Cups
makes 24 wontons
- 24 wonton wrappers
- 2 lbs. chicken thighs, trimmed
- 2 tbsp. hoisin sauce
- 1/4 c. soy sauce
- 1 tsp. lemon juice
- 1/2 c. carrots, shredded

- 1/2 c. cabbage, diced

To make the wonton cups…
Start making this Thai chicken appetizer by preheating your oven to 350 degrees. Lightly grease each cup in the mini muffin pan with non-stick spray. Separate each wonton wrapper and press them down into each cup, molding the wonton to the inside of the pan. Bake for 10 – 15 minutes, or until golden brown. Remove from the oven and set aside.
To make the filling…
While the wonton cups are baking, cut the chicken thighs into pieces and saute them in a non-stick pan for 4-5 minutes, or until brown. Reduce heat to low, stir in the soy sauce, hoisin sauce, lemon juice, and optional cashews. Add all of the veggies, stir until they are coated and throughly combined, and cover for about 10 minutes.
Remove from heat and allow the chicken mixture to cool. Dice it up into small pieces, spoon into each wonton cup. Serve on a platter, spice up the presentation and sprinkle with green onions if you have extra! Also, if you’re a fan of spicy foods, add a little crushed red pepper.
