Chicken Wonton Rolls Recipe

Chicken Wonton Rolls Recipe

Guests will think you fussed over these warm golden bites from Mary Dixson of Decatur, Alabama. "I sometimes turn the recipe into a main course by using egg roll wrappers and serving the rolls with chicken gravy," she explains.
TOTAL TIME: Prep: 40 min. + freezing Bake: 15 min. YIELD:48 servings

Ingredients

  • 1 package (3 ounces) cream cheese, softened
  • 6 tablespoons butter, softened, divided
  • 2 tablespoons minced chives
  • 1/2 teaspoon lemon-pepper seasoning
  • 1-1/2 cups finely chopped cooked chicken
  • 1 can (4 ounces) mushroom stems and pieces, drained and chopped
  • 1 package (12 ounces) wonton wrappers
  • 2/3 cup crushed salad croutons
  • Sweet-and-sour sauce, optional

Directions

  • 1. In a small bowl, beat the cream cheese, 2 tablespoons butter, chives and lemon-pepper until blended. Stir in chicken and mushrooms.
  • 2. Place a rounded teaspoonful in the center of a wonton wrapper. (Keep remaining wrappers covered with a damp paper towel until ready to use.) Fold bottom corner over filling; fold sides toward center. Moisten remaining corner with water; roll up tightly to seal.
  • 3. Melt remaining butter; brush over wontons. Coat with croutons. Place on a baking sheet; freeze. Transfer to a large freezer bag; seal and freeze for up to 3 months.
  • 4. To use frozen wontons: Place wontons on greased baking sheets. Bake at 425° for 10 minutes. Turn; bake 5-10 minutes longer or until lightly browned. Serve warm with sweet-and-sour sauce if desired. Yield: about 4 dozen.
