Preparation Time: 20 minutes

Cook Time: 17 minutes

Cut: Ground chicken


24 wonton wrappers
1 lb (450 g) ground chicken
1/2 cup (125 ml) finely chopped Chinese or green cabbage
1/3 cup (80 ml) minced water chestnuts
1/4 cup (60 ml) minced fresh ginger
1 garlic clove, minced
2 green onions, minced
1 tsp (5 ml) sesame oil
1 Tbsp (15 ml) oyster sauce
1 tsp (5 ml) hot pepper paste
1 Tbsp (15 ml) soy sauce
Pickled ginger


Preheat oven 350F.

Brush off excess flour off each wonton wrapper. Tuck a wonton wrapper into a muffin tin to form a cup.  Repeat with remaining wrappers.

Spray wontons lightly with non-stick spray. Bake for 5-7 minutes or until wontons cups are crisp and lightly browned. Let cool. Cook chicken over medium high heat until crumbly and cooked through. Drain well.

Stir in remaining ingredients, except for pickled ginger. Stir cook just until the cabbage is softened. Remove from heat. Spoon chicken mixture into wonton cups and top with pickled ginger. Serve immediately. 

Tip: Wonton wrappers can be baked ahead and stored at room temperature.  Filling can also be done ahead and refrigerated up to 24 hours.  Heat the filling in a skillet or microwave, then fill the wonton cups.
