The following recipe is an easy-to-make take on wontons, using premade crescent roll dough. These are great for Chinese New Year, which is on Sunday.
To make 8 wontons:
2 cans of 8 oz. Pillsbury crescent roll dough (each can has 8 triangles of dough)
1 cup of chicken, cooked, diced
½ cup of asparagus, steamed to just tender, chopped
½ cup of broccoli, steamed to just tender, chopped
1 teaspoon soy sauce
½ teaspoon ginger
¼ teaspoon black pepper
Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Spray cooking oil on cookie sheet. Mix chicken, asparagus, broccoli, soy sauce, ginger, and pepper in a bowl and set aside. Unroll dough triangles and place half of them on cookie sheet. Spoon chicken mixture onto dough triangles. Cover mixture-covered dough triangles with remaining dough, and pinch seams together, forming stuffed, sealed triangle pockets. You can also form them into hearts (to tie in Valentine’s Day and Chinese New Year themes). Cook for 25 minutes or until nicely browned.
