Applebee’s Wonton Tacos

Advertisements

Light and tasty, these make a great appetizer or a quick and easy main dish! Kids love them! Finally a dish that makes use of ground chicken but not so far-fetched. I bake the wonton wrappers to save time and it eliminates most of the fat.

Ingredients:

Nonstick cooking spray
8 wonton wrappers
4 ounces cooked, shredded skinless chicken breast (1 cup)
2 tablespoons barbecue sauce
3/4 cup packaged coleslaw mix
2 tablespoons low-fat sesame ginger dressing
2 tablespoons chopped fresh cilantro

Directions:

Preheat oven to 400°. Spray inside and outside walls of a deep square pan with nonstick cooking spray.
Drape wonton wrappers over the pan’s walls on a diagonal, making triangle-shaped shells. Bake until crispy (3-4 minutes).
Remove pan from oven; cool. Combine chicken with barbecue sauce in a bowl. In a microwave-safe bowl, combine coleslaw mix, sesame ginger dressing, and cilantro. Microwave until softened (45 seconds); set aside.
Carefully remove wonton shells from pan; fill each with 1 tablespoon of barbecue chicken and 1 teaspoon of cilantro slaw.
On a baking sheet coated with nonstick cooking spray, lay filled wontons on sides. Spray tops of wonton shells lightly with nonstick cooking spray; bake until warm and crunchy (5 minutes).
