I am addicted to fried wontons and as much I love them warm, I love cold. I know I am crazy but its so good even without dipping into yum yum sauce.

The recipe for egg roll wrappers is used to make the fried wontons. I took the recipe and cut it half because I am making the size smaller (2 x 2) for make these.

Fried Chicken Wontons

Here is the link to make the egg roll wrappers but I used half of the ingredients but you can use the same one exactly, it will give you 40 wontons instead the 20 that I will be making for this recipe

Here is what I did with the original recipe but the rest stays the same.

INGREDIENTS

  • 1 cups almond flour
  • 3 tbsp. coconut flour
  • 1 tsp, baking powder
  • 2 tsp. xanthan gum
  • 1/4 tsp. salt
  • 1 tbsp. water
  • 1 tbsp. apple cider vinegar
  • 1 eggs, room temperature

For the fried wontons, I used ground chicken because I didn’t have any ground pork or shrimp. What I did with the ground chicken is sautéed it with onions, liquid aminos, sesame oil and oyster sauce. It came out so good and no leftovers.

Just a reminder do not overfill the wontons or they will open up while frying. I would say you only need 1 tsp. of filling for each wonton.
