Did you know wonton wrappers are so versatile, or was I the only one in the dark? I've been having so much fun trying out new things to make with them! Namely, these wonton chicken tacos came out amazing!
Wonton taco shells are a great alternative to flour or corn tortillas if you're looking for low carb options. They're also great to for party platters or snack cravings,
Making these wonton taco shells are so easy, y'all! All you need to do is:
Turn a muffin tin upside down and spray it with cooking oil spray.
Place wontons between the muffin slots
Bake for 10-12 minutes at 300 degrees until golden brown and crispy.
For my wonton tacos, I stuffed them with Cajun-spiced chicken and asian slaw, but you can make them with ground beef, tuna tartare, ceviche, or whatever protein you prefer!
Preheat oven to 375 F.
In a medium-sized bowl, add chopped chicken and all chicken ingredients, and toss until fully covered. Cover bowl, or add contents to a ziplock bag, and refrigerate for 1 hour.
Turn a muffin tin upside down, and spray cooking oil between two muffin cups. Press a wonton wrapper between two of the muffin cups to create a "V" shape. Repeat until all slots are filled with wrappers. Make sure to fill every other row of the muffin so you have no wrappers overlapping.
Bake for 5-7 minutes, or until wontons are golden brown. Check periodically to ensure they don’t burn. Once done, remove from oven and set aside. Repeat with the next batch of wontons until you have about 10-15 complete wonton taco shells.
Heat olive oil in a skillet over medium-high heat. Toss in marinated chicken from the fridge and begin to saute the chicken. Once chicken is fully cooked, remove from heat.
Add Asian slaw mix to a large bowl along with the chopped cilantro. Add in remaining slaw ingredients and toss until greens are fully coated.
