HG's Sassy Wonton Tacos

I am not sure if my husband likes me eating "normal food" again because the food that I am cooking and serving to him isn't normal. I have to give him credit that he did try these tacos and loved them! Wife cooked, picky husband approved!

I found this awesome recipe swap on Hungry Girls' website. It is a recipe swap for Applebee's Chicken Wonton Tacos.  By choosing these over the Applebee's version, you are saving over 400 calories!

This is 2 servings

I made a double batch

HG's Sassy Wonton Tacos

8 small square wonton wrappers
4 oz grilled chicken breast, shredded
2 TB BBQ sauce with about 45 calories per 2-tbsp. serving
3/4 cup dry coleslaw mix
2 TB Kraft Light Asian Toasted Sesame Salad Dressing

Preheat oven to 400 degrees.

To make the wonton shells, spray the inside and outside walls of a deep square or rectangular baking pan with nonstick spray. Evenly drape wonton wrappers over the pan's walls on a diagonal, making triangle-shaped "shells." (Use two pans, if needed, to keep wontons from overlapping.) Bake for 3 - 4 minutes, until just crispy enough to hold their shape. Remove pan from the oven and set aside to cool.

Combine chicken with BBQ sauce in a bowl and mix well. Set aside.

In a microwave-safe bowl, combine coleslaw mix and dressing. Mix well. Microwave for 45 seconds, until slightly softened. Set aside.

Spray a baking sheet with nonstick spray. One at a time, carefully remove wonton shells from the pan and fill each with a heaping tablespoon of BBQ chicken and a heaping teaspoon of slaw. Lay filled wontons gently on their sides on the baking sheet.

Spray the upward-facing sides of the wonton shells lightly with nonstick spray (for added crispiness) and bake for about 5 minutes, until warm and crunchy. Let cool slightly and serve!
