  • olive oil
  • 48 wonton wrappers
  • 1 pound ground chicken
  • 1 cup shredded carrot
  • 1 cup shredded savoy cabbage
  • ½ red pepper small dice
  • 3 scallions chopped, white and light green parts only
  • ¼ cup hoisin sauce
  • 2 tablespoons soy sauce
  • 1 tablespoon sesame oil
  • freshly ground black pepper
  • cup duck sauce
  • scallions for garnish
  1. Pre-heat the oven to 350ºF.
  2. Grease the inside of a mini muffin pan with a little olive oil. Place a wonton wrapper in each cavity of the muffin tin and press it down to form a cup. The wonton will fold over onto itself and hang over the top of the tin. Brush the inside of the wonton cup with a little olive oil.
  3. Bake at 350ºF for 8 to 10 minutes, until lightly browned. Allow to cool a few minutes in the pan and then cool on a cooling rack. Repeat with remaining wonton wrappers.

  4. Pre-heat a large sauté pan over medium-high heat. Add a little olive oil to the pan and then add the ground chicken, breaking it up with a wooden spoon. Cook until the chicken is no longer pink and then add the shredded carrot and diced red pepper. Sauté for a few minutes and then add the shredded cabbage and scallions. Sauté for two more minutes and add the hoisin sauce, soy sauce, and sesame oil. Continue to sauté until everything is heated through.
  5. When you are ready to serve, spoon the warm chicken mixture into the crispy wonton cups. Top with a dollop of the duck sauce, garnish with some chopped scallions and serve immediately.
Recipe Notes

To make ahead: The Wonton Cups can be filled with the chicken filling up to an hour before serving. Bake at 350ºF for about 5 to 7 minutes to heat them up. Dollop with the duck sauce and garnish with scallions before serving.
