Chicken Cordon Bleu Wontons

This recipe first appeared on my other blog TheNoviceGardener. Since then, I’ve made it several times, varying the ratios of meat : cheese or using different kinds of cheese, etc.

I also tried many ways to make the baked version as good as the fried. I brushed them with oil before baking, heated the baking sheet before putting the wontons on it, etc.

In the end, I stand by this original version. And I still think the fried version wins out the baked version. So, do yourself a favor. Try this fried and with the exact ingredients!

Recipe type: Appetizer
Cuisine: American Fusion
Ingredients
  • 8 oz. cream cheese
  • 1 cooked chicken breast (about 2 cups), diced
  • 1 cup diced ham
  • 1 cup grated Gruyère cheese
  • 3 cloves garlic, minced
  • 3 green onions, sliced thinly
  • Salt & pepper
  • 1 egg, beaten
  • Cooking oil
  • Wonton wrappers
Instructions
  1. Mix all filling ingredients together in a bowl until combined.
  2. Place about 1 tablespoon of filling on center of each wonton wrapper.
  3. Dip your finger into the beaten egg, then “paint” the edges of the wontons with the egg.
  4. Pinch two opposite corners together.
  5. Now bring the two remaining corners to the center and pinch to seal. Seal all to form an “x”. (See how-to photos below)
  6. Fry in hot oil for one minute, or until golden brown. Drain on paper towels.
  7. Or you can bake them. Pre-heat oven to 400°F. Line a cookie sheet with parchment paper or spray with cooking spray. Line wontons evenly, and bake for 10 minutes, or until golden brown.
