Chicken Wontons

Years ago I was part of a cooking club where I had the good fortune to learn from some of the best home cooks who had the privilage of coming from exotic ,intresting contries. This recipe came from one of the group members are has an Indo Chinese flavor. They are spicy ,crisp and just clean tasting ,unlike frozen ones found in many Asian supermarkets. I double the recipe and place one batch in the freezer.

1/2 lb ground chicken (I use the breast)

1 small beaten egg

1 stalk celery ,finely chopped

salt and ground white pepper

2 chopped green chilles (or to taste)

2 tbs  Chopped corriander leaves

Wonton wrappers (DO NOT BUY THE EXTRA THIN)

1 egg beaten ,for sealing the wontons

Oil for deep frying.

Mix the beaten egg ,celery , chillis, corriander ,salt ,pepper and chicken well. If the mixture is too soft ,refridgerate a while.

Take a wrapper , place it on an angle , put a small amount of filling at the corner. Using a brush ,brush all sides with beaten egg. Roll the clear half over ,forming a triangle and press to seal. Flip the edges around and seal with some beaten egg.

Place on a wire rack or wax paper while you complete making all of them.

Deep fry immediately or freeze by place ,not touching on a cookie sheet.Place ,uncovered , in a deep freezer. When frozen place in a freezer bag and back into the freezer.
