Number of Servings: 1

Ingredients

    8 oz boneless skinless chicken breasts
    2 tablespoons stir fry sauce
    4 tablespoons asian sesame vinegarette dressing
    1 tablespoon olive oil
    4 tablespoons dole slaw mix (no dressing, pre-packaged, from the produce section)
    1 tablespoon coleslaw dressing
    1 tablespoon soy sauce
    1 tablespoon teriaki sauce
    2 wonton wrappers
    2 tablespoons green onion tops
    2 tablespoons cilantro
    2 tablespoons sliced almonds

Directions

This is for one serving of 2 taco's. If you have more people just keep doubling the recipe.

Brush the wonton wrappers with olive oil very lightly. Drape over a wide edged baking pan or taco rack to create a taco shaped wonton. Bake at 375 degrees for 5 minutes or until shells are golden brown. Take out and let sit in position while fixing the rest. Dice chicken into tiny pieces. Toss together chicken with stir fry sauce, 3 tablespoons of the asian dressing, soy sauce and teriyaki sauce. Heat a skillet or wok with enough olive oil to stir fry your chicken, try to keep it lean. Add pepper to taste. Fry until coooked through. Mix the remaining tablespoon of asian dressing with the coleslaw dressing and toss into the coleslaw mix and green onion tops. Take the taco shaped wontons and fill them 1/4 way up with chicken, then with slaw, then with chopped cilantro and top them with almonds.


Using low sodium, light dressings and such or leaving out the almonds would reduce the fat and calories in this recipe even more.

  • Are you sure about the calorie count on this recipe? I checked and Applebees is only 610 calories for 4 of their wonton tacos, about half of what your version is listing. Just curious, I tried the Applebees version today and it was great, was wanting a lower calorie version. - 7/7/10
