Green Curry Chicken Salad

My obsession with cups and one bite nibbles continues.

You already know that I love phyllo cups.

And you already know I love endive cups.

I eat my Thanksgiving dressing in cup form.

And I even eat my breakfast in one bite, because clearly bacon, eggs, and toast all belong together, nestled into a muffin tin.

Great things just happen when you put a bunch of different ingredients into one mouth-sized package.

So now I’m bringing you…

wonton cups!!!

Crispy Baked Wonton Cups

If you’ve got a crispy tooth, you will LOVE these.

They’ve got the kind of obnoxious chomp that makes everyone in the room stare at you.

That’s the sign of some insane crispiness.

To make the wonton cups, place oil brushed wonton wrappers into a mini muffin tin.

How to Make Crispy Wonton Cups

Bake for 10 minutes, until golden brown and crisp.

Then make the Thai green curry chicken salad, by mixing main players like chicken, green curry paste, cilantro, lime juice, and coconut milk:

Spoon the salad into the little cups:

Garnish with some snipped chives, and admire their greatness:

And as you eat, note the different flavors going on in your mouth….that’s my favorite part. Green curry, lime, coconut, mmm.

Have a great 4th of July!

Calories 68kcal

Ingredients

  • 1 lb of chicken breasts cooked and chopped
  • 2 scallions chopped
  • 3 tbsp cilantro or parsley chopped
  • 1 tbsp fresh lime juice
  • 2 tsp green curry paste
  • 2 tbsp mayonnaise
  • 1 tbsp coconut milk
  • 24 wonton wrappers about half a 12oz package
  • vegetable oil for brushing
  • salt
  • snipped chives for garnish

Instructions

  • Make the green curry chicken salad by mixing to combine the chopped chicken, scallions, cilantro or parsley, lime juice, green curry paste, mayonnaise, and coconut milk. Let this mixture sit in the fridge for at least an hour, so the flavors meld. If you can even make this a day ahead of time, the flavors will be optimal the next day.
  • Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F.
  • Brush each wonton wrapper with vegetable oil on both sides, then nestle it into the bottom of a 12-cup mini muffin pan. Repeat until the pan is filled, then sprinkle the wonton wrappers with salt. Bake for 10 minutes, until the wontons get golden brown and crispy. Let them cool down on a wire rack, and repeat with the remaining 12 wonton wrappers, so you have 24 wonton cups total.
  • Once the wonton cups have cooled down, fill each one with a heaping pile of the green curry chicken salad. And be generous here! Garnish with snipped chives, and serve!
