Ok seriously … I think this has gotta be one of the better or more genius ideas that I’ve had! Chilli Chicken in a Wonton???? Why did I take this long to figure this out. I’ve made many a Chilli Chicken in my time from my Mom’s easy recipe to the more complex but incredible Kolkata Chilli Chicken so the evolution to an adorable Wonton was bound to happen.

To create this and make it practical, all of the ingredients are diced very small so they can be easily stuffed into a small wonton wrapper.

I love making a batch of Wontons and just freezing them for a rainy day. These ones kept my family and friends happy for a while. I also made a batch to take to my friends home for a potluck.
