Asian Chicken Won Ton Cups

Prep time 24 mins
Cook time 14 mins
Yield 2 dozen


  • Vegetable cooking spray
  • 24 won ton wrappers (we tested with Frieda's Asian Specialties)
  • 3 tablespoons creamy peanut butter
  • 3 tablespoons water
  • 2 tablespoons fresh lime juice
  • 1 tablespoon rice wine vinegar
  • 1 tablespoon honey
  • 2 teaspoons chili sauce with garlic (we tested with Hokan)
  • 2 teaspoons dark sesame oil
  • 1/2 cup sliced almonds, toasted
  • 2 green onions, sliced
  • 1 cup chopped cooked chicken
  • 1/2 cup shredded napa cabbage

How to Make It

  1. Coat 24 miniature muffin cups with cooking spray. Carefully press 1 won ton wrapper into each muffin cup; spray lightly with cooking spray (wrapper will extend above rim). Bake at 375° for 8 to 10 minutes or until lightly browned and crisp. Remove from pan; cool completely on a wire rack. Store in airtight container until ready to assemble cups.

  2. Meanwhile, whisk together peanut butter and next 6 ingredients. Add sliced almonds, sliced green onions, and chicken; toss to coat. Cover and chill chicken until ready to assemble cups.

  3. Fill won ton cups evenly with cabbage (about 1 teaspoon) and chicken mixture (about 2 1/2 teaspoons) just before serving.

  4. Make Ahead: Won ton cups can be baked a day ahead and stored in an airtight container. Chicken filling and cabbage can be prepared a day ahead and chilled separately.
