Baked Chicken Cream Cheese Wontons!!

I am a bad blogger. It's been 14 days since my last post. Bad blogger. Bad!

But, I've been taking pictures of some fun meals, and I will catch you up, one at a time.

Tonight, I made BAKED CHICKEN CREAM CHEESE WONTONS. You just can't stop popping them into your mouth.


15 wonton wrappers
ground chicken (I made a lb and had a ton leftover)
1/2 cup chopped scallions
1/2 cup shredded carrots
1/4 block of Cream cheese
3 T soy sauce
salt, pepper

Brown the chicken, season it with S/P, and soy sauce. Combine your shredded carrots and scallions in a bowl. Take a wonton, smear a small bit of cream cheese on it, then a small scoop of the carrot/scallion mixture, followed by a small scoop of chicken. Do not overstuff, or your wrapper will tear.

Keep a small bowl of water by you, and begin to wrap. Dab a tiny bit of water on the edges, then fold the edges in and seal. Don't worry about pretty. Secure is what you're going for....

Now lay them out on a parchment-lined cookie sheet. I sprayed them with a little olive oil, because I happen to have a little sprayer thingee. You could also brush them, but I like to cut down on the oill content as much as possible.

Now bake at 325 degrees for 8-10 minutes. My oven needed an extra two minutes.
You could probably fry these, if you were so inclined. I'm sure they
would be a little better. But for me, baking did the trick.

And they are the perfect size, for little fingers. My daughter thinks they look like little envelopes.....
