Fried Chicken Wontons

You can always make soup with these wontons, or do as I did and make some delicious appetizers by frying them up.  These are great served with sweet & sour sauce and soy sauce for dipping.

Fried Chicken Wontons

1 package wonton skins
3/4# ground chicken
1 egg
1/2 tsp salt
1/4 tsp pepper
1 1/2 tsp onion powder
1 1/2 tsp garlic powder
1 Tbsp soy sauce
Oil to fry in

Mix meat mixture together, place ½ - 1 tsp mix in wonton skin.
To roll

1. Lightly wet 3 corners of wrapper with water
2. Roll first corner under and tuck under meat.
3. Fold side corner toward center.
4. Fold other side corner over.
5. Lightly wet base of folded area.
6. Do a half roll from #2 end.
Put in boiling water for 3-5 minutes. Drain.

Heat oil to 375 F. Fry wontons in oil until golden brown, flipping once. Enjoy!

Should you decide to make soup instead of fried wontons after boiling the wontons make chicken broth. (4 qts. Water and ½ c chicken base) Put wontons in to simmer. Before serving add chopped scallions. Add base as needed to strengthen flavor. You can also add snow peas, pork strips, the meat mixture made into little balls and boiled, baby corn.
