Wonton Tacos Recipe

These are just like the Wonton Taco’s from Applebee’s appetizer menu. These tacos consist of stir-fried chicken, coleslaw, red onion, green onion, and cilantro. The best part about these tacos is the chicken. The chicken is marinated and stir fried in a teriyaki sauce, soy sauce, stir fry sauce, and sesame dressing mixture. This combination goes together extremely well. The coleslaw is tossed with additional sesame dressing. The hardest part about this recipe is frying the wonton wrappers. It can be a little tricky and it is something you will want to do last. If you don’t want to mess around with the wontons the chicken goes great over rice. This makes a great appetizer. Enjoy.

This is a great recipe! After having them at Applebee's years ago I searched and tried a couple different recipes and came back to this one. I reduce the soy sauce as we found it to salty (1/2 t). We bake our wonton wrappers in the oven at 325f for 10 min. We lightly coat both sides and then rest on a pie dish in order to make the taco shape. works perfectly.

I saw that they put the wonton wraps over the sides of a baking pan that was sprayed with cooking spray so they don't stick. Bake for 3 minutes at 400 degrees. They will still be soft so you can fill them. Spray with more cooking spray before baking again. Bake for 5 more minutes. Saw this on a video on

My husband and I love Apple-bee's wonton taco's. I will be making this recipe this weekend. But my husband and I thought we tasted something hot/spicy. I don't see anything in the recipe that would add a little heat.

i have made these repeatedly and the family loves them. A few changes: I added about a tablespoon of mayo and a 1/2 tsp of sugar into the slaw mix. Once the oil is heated I fry the wonton lightly on one side, flip it quickly then fold leaving about a finger's width opening and directly onto a paper towel. we also like to drizzle with general tsao sauce for a sweet/ spicy finish.. don't forget a squeeze of lime too!
