If you haven’t started baking with wanton wrappers, it’s something I highly recommend. It’s a quick and easy way to create a restaurant quality appetizer or snack. I’ve pretty much monopolized the cupcake tray approach with baked crab rangoon, baked potato cups, wanton pizza cups and buffalo chicken wantons. Basically, these things are like crack, and once you figure out what you can do with them, you’re always geeking out for your next fix. So maybe that’s a bad comparison, but you get the idea.
So anyways, I recently combined two of my favorite things: fall comfort food, and wonton wrappers. I’m sure none of you will be running out in 90 degree weather to get the stuff to make these, but I have a feeling this will come in handy for some autumn grub.
Ham & Chicken Wonton Rollups
- 1/3 cup peeled carrots
- 1/3 cup diced onion
- 1/3 cup chopped green onions
- 1/4 cup diced Potatoes
- 1 tbsp butter
- 1/2 cup pre-cooked chopped ham
- 1/2 cup pre-cooked chopped chicken
- 1/4 cup water
- 1/2 packet pot roast dry mix
- 1/2 brick of cream cheese
- salt & pepper (to taste)
Prepare vegetables accordingly. Combine carrots and onions into a bowl. Place potatoes in a microwave safe bowl and set aside.
I used pre-cooked ham and fresh chicken breasts for my meat base. Cut ham and chicken into small bite-sized pieces fry in a skillet until chicken is no longer pink. Add 1/4 cup of water and half of the pot roast dry mix. Stirring frequently, bring meat and seasoning mixture to a boil, reduce heat and simmer until water is fully absorbed.
In the microwave safe dish, add butter, pepper and a few tablespoons of water to the diced potatoes. Microwave on high for 3-5 minutes. Once the potatoes are soft, remove from microwave and set aside.
Lay out the wonton and place cream at center. Layer a modest amount of the meat followed by potatoes and remaining veggies. Evenly dispersing the ingredients along the length of the wrapper, but keep it light enough that it will roll easily.
Roll the wontons tightly, pinching the edges.
Bake for 15 minutes, or until wontons are crispy and lightly browned.
Slice into diagonal bite-sized pieces and serve with sour cream or your favorite dipping sauce.
