Tired of the Same Old Sunday Football Snacks? Try Chicken Wonton Tacos

Traci Taylor

Having friends over this weekend to hang out or watch football? This is one of my all-time favorite recipes to make for a weekend get together with friends.  It’s simple and delicious and I promise you there won’t be any leftovers!

Ingredients: 6-8 skinless, boneless chicken breasts, grilled (or you can cheat and use the pre-cooked stuff like I did), 1 tablespoon stir fry oil, 1 package of coleslaw mix, 1/4 cup, diced red onion, Asian vinaigrette dressing, 1 package square wonton wrappers, 1 cup vegetable oil or extra virgin olive oil, 1/4 cup chopped cilantro and limes


In a bowl mix together coleslaw mix (but do not use the coleslaw dressing that comes with it), cilantro and dice red onion. Pour Asian Vinaigrette into coleslaw mix, you won’t need much. Use an amount that makes the coleslaw taste the way you want it. I use about 1/4 of a cup or less. Stir coleslaw mixture together until all ingredients are well combined and refrigerate for a minimum of one hour. I found that it was easiest to mix up the slaw mixture by using my hands.  Just be sure to wash them well before and after!

Grill Chicken breasts and cut into small cubes.  In a preheated skillet warm up stir fry oil. When oil is hot add chicken. Fry for about 2 minutes or so until chicken is hot and coated in stir fry oil. Remove chicken from skillet and add 1 cup of vegetable oil to the pan. I also coated the chicken in the vinaigrette because I really wanted that Asian taste.

Place a “strip” of cubed and fried chicken in the center of a wonton wrapper and then  fold the wrapper so that it resembles a taco.

Fry wonton wrapper with chicken inside for about 30 seconds or so until wonton wrapper is golden brown and crispy. You want to be sure to keep the wonton open- don’t let it seal or it won’t really be a taco.  To keep it from sealing, hold the top flap up with a pair of tongs until the wonton starts to fry.

Top each taco with coleslaw mix and a sprinkle of chopped cilantro. Give everyone a lime wedge to squeeze over their tacos.
