Hungry Girl's Sassy Wontons Recipe

I love Hungry Girl as we all know - and I wanted to share this recipe for "Sassy Wontons" she had on Cooking Channel. The things you can do with wonton wrappers are amazing, no?? Enjoy! 


  • 8 small square wonton wrappers
  • 1 cup dry coleslaw mix
  • 2 tablespoons chopped fresh cilantro
  • 2 tablespoons low-fat sesame ginger dressing 
  • 4 ounces cooked and shredded (or finely chopped) skinless lean chicken breast
  • 2 tablespoons BBQ sauce 


*Often stocked near the tofu in the refrigerated section of the market.

Preheat the oven to 400 degrees F.

To make the wonton shells, spray the inside and outside walls of a deep square or rectangular baking pan with nonstick spray. Evenly drape the wonton wrappers over the pan's walls on a diagonal, making triangle-shaped "shells." (Use two pans, if needed, to keep the wontons from overlapping.) Bake them until just crispy enough to hold their shape, about 3 minutes. Remove the pan from the oven, but leave the oven on. Carefully remove the shells and gently open them to form "tacos." Set aside.

In a microwave-safe bowl, combine coleslaw mix, cilantro, and dressing. Mix well. Cover and microwave for about 1 minute, until slightly softened. Set aside.

In another bowl, combine chicken with BBQ sauce; mix well and set aside.

Spray a baking sheet with nonstick spray. Evenly distribute the BBQ chicken among the shells, followed by the slaw, about 1 tablespoon of each per shell. Lay the filled wontons gently on their sides on the baking sheet.

Spray the shells lightly with nonstick spray. Bake for about 5 minutes, until warm and crunchy. Let them cool slightly and serve!
