1 package WonTon Skins
1 pound boneless chicken breasts -- cubed, up to 2
1 can coconut milk -- (Taste of Thai is -- OK)
1 jar Thai -- Vietnamese,or other -- chili-garlic paste
2 thai chiles -- fresh, green and -- red (seeded is -- optional), up to 3
1 bunch fresh cilantro -- roughly chopped
1 small portion of water and cornstarch -- make thin paste
Mix cubed chicken with coconut milk, chili paste, peppers and cilantro. Allow to sit for at least an hour to absorb flavours. Then, taking a cube of chicken (or two, depending on size), center it in a wonton skin,gather the four corners of the skin with your fingers moistened in the cornstarch paste, and twirl the skin until the dumpling looks like a Hershey's Kiss. Allow these to rest on waxed paper or a cookie sheet sprayed with PAM. Deep fry these in sufficient oil to cover, a few at a time. I use peanut oil but anything that can take a high heat is fine. Olive oil smokes too much.
Remove from hot oil when they float and are golden brown. Be careful, they cook very fast.
I usually provide a peanut sauce to dip these in but they're fine by themselves
I do not use exact measurements when I cook, so the above are only approximations of what I use. If it looks right, it probably will be fine.
These work out great for parties, too.
