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.

I saute the veggies on the saute function and then once all of the ingredients have been added, I cook it on high pressure for 15 min and then let it do a natural release. After it's cooled a little, I run it though my Vitamix to make it smooth. This has ... " - wendy l.
"Tall, fluffy pancakes make the best breakfast, especially when there's plenty of butter and syrup. Make it extra special with berries and whipped cream!" - ann page

"Followed the recipe, and it was the best roast ever. I served it to four fiends, and they all wanted the recipe. We made sandwiches two days later and had the same results, best flavor for a sandwich from a pot roast ever." - glen r.
"If sweet little baby Jesus floated down from a cloud and handed you a bowl of soup, this would be it. This soup was so good that I created a username just to review and comment on it. I made the soup exactly as written. Even after adding the cream cheese I was still skeptical that it would come ... " - learningtogether
