I was inspired to create this after finding won ton wrappers in the store; all I could envision was little pockets of chopped meat. These are delicious warm, but super when cooled to room temperature. A great appetizer that could be made early in the day of your next party; double up for a large party.
2 chicken thighs and one breast (skinless/boneless), finely chopped (easiest if semi frozen first)
1 1/2 teaspoon liquid aminos/soy sauce
1 1/2 teaspoon teriyaki sauce
1/2 teaspoon brown sugar
fresh ground salt and pepper (I used about 3 grinds of pink Himalayan salt and 5 grinds of pepper)
1/4 teaspoon garlic powder
finely minced garlic clove (1 large or 2-3 small)
finely minced shallot
finely minced Serrano (seeded first)
Won Ton wrappers
Combine chopped chicken with brown sugar, salt and pepper, and garlic powder; mix well. Add liquid aminos and teriyaki sauce. Add to a hot skillet and cook over medium heat until chicken is cooked through. Scoop out onto plate or baking dish to cool to room temperature. Preheat oven to 350°F. Once chicken has cooled, combine with remaining ingredients (except wrappers). Fill a bowl with a little water and set aside. To each wrapper add a small amount of the chicken mixture in the middle; swipe edges of wrapper with dampened finger (using bowl of water), fold in half and seal edges. Place on lightly greased baking sheet. Repeat until sheet is full then bake for 20-30 minutes or until wrappers are golden brown. Repeat with remaining mixture and wrappers.
