These Chunky Chicken Wonton Cups are absolutely great for game day. Anything bite size and tasty is sure to please the gang as they gather around the TV watching their favorite team. The idea of using Wonton as cups has inspired me to experiment with what other ingredients I could fill them with, I'm thinking of something along the lines of sausage, mushrooms and mozzarella cheese.

What a great find this recipe is...I always have extra wonton wrappers left over and never know what to do with them. It never dawned on me to use them as a vessel for so many yummy options both sweet and savory. I'm wondering if they were cut tortilla chip style if you could bake them and eat them with hummus or even salsa. Fruit salad sounds like a great idea too...I can't wait to try this!

I love the idea of using wontons to make individual sized cups for a chicken appetizer. I'm not a fan of spicy food etc. I would love these filled with a favorite chicken salad mix with the dried cranberries. If you can't tolerate chutney and curry as I can't, what would you use with the chicken? I love Miracle Whip and like to add that tart flavor to chicken for a cold appetizer. Cubed delicious apple, walnuts and finely chopped celery would be yummy additions too.

As suggested, these Chunky Chicken Wonton Cups are perfect to serve in parties as it allows you bring one in your hand while mingling with guests. It is also a healthy option
