HERE’S WHAT YOU NEED:
- 18 Wonton Wrappers
- 2 cups of pulled Rotisserie Chicken
- 3 Green Onions – Chopped
- 1/2 teaspoon of Garlic Salt
- 1/2 teaspoon of Seasoned Salt
- 1/2 tsp garlic powder
- Seasoned Pepper – sprinkled to taste
- Sesame Seeds – to sprinkle on top
- Vegetable Oil Cooking Spray
- ORANGE SAUCE:
- 1 large ripe Orange – sliced
- 1/2 cup of Orange Juice
- 1/3 cup Brown Sugar
- 1 teaspoon of Minced Garlic
- 1/3 cup of Soy Sauce
- 1/4 cup of Water
- 1 heaping Tablespoon of Cornstarch
HERE’S WHAT YOU DO:
First, make the Orange Sauce: Place a heavy bottomed Sauce Pan on the stove, and add the Orange Juice (from a carton, or bottle) Brown Sugar, and Soy Sauce. Bring to a Boil, and turn the heat to low. Add the Minced Garlic, and stir. Wash and Slice the Orange, and add to the Pan (TIP: Slice the Orange on a large Paper Plate, or a piece of Parchment Paper so you can catch the Juice) add to the pan. Stir, and cook/simmer for 5 minutes. Mix the Cornstarch with the Water, and stir well to completely mix, or blend the Cornstarch, so it’s smooth, and no lumps remain. Turn the heat up to medium high, and add the Cornstarch/water to the pan. When the Sauce boils, and starts to turn clear, and not cloudy, turn the heat to low, and stir for about 1 minute. Remove the Sauce from the Heat, and set aside.
Pull apart the Rotisserie Chicken, until you have shredded chicken. Clean and chop 2 of the Green Onions, and mix the Green Onions with the Chopped Chicken. Place a large piece of Parchment paper on the counter, and lay the Wonton Wrappers on the Parchment paper. Dip the edges of the Wonton Wrappers in the Sauce. Fill the Center of each Wonton Wrapper with about a teaspoonful of the Chicken mixture. Pinch the ends together, pulling up opposite corner ends and pinching them together in the center, and all four corners are pulled up into a point.
Spray the Air Fryer basket with Vegetable Oil Cooking Spray, and place the Wonton’s in a single layer in the Air Fryer, and Air Fry for 8 minutes at 350 degrees, checking the Wonton’s half way through cooking, or at about 4 minutes. While the Wonton’s are cooking, Clean and Chop the Green Onion.
When Wonton’s are golden brown, remove from the Air Fryer to a serving plate. Sprinkle with the Sesame Seeds, and Chopped Green Onion. Place the Sauce in a serving bowl, serve, and Enjoy!
