Chicken and Shrimp Won Tons with Chili- Sweet & Sour Sauce

These are restaurant quality ALL THE WAY!! Although time consuming, they are not too difficult to make. My husband's poker party friends labeled me as a 'goddess' for serving these to them during their game.

Yield: Serves 15 to 20 (50 to 60 appetizers)

Prep Time: 1 hour + time for refrigeration

Cook Time: 20 minutes


3/4 pound raw chicken, diced
3/4 pound shrimp, diced
2 Tablespoons diced green onions
1 Tablespoon minced fresh cilantro
1 teaspoon minced garlic
1 teaspoon fresh ginger, minced
1 whole serrano chili, seeded & minced
1 1/2 Tablespoons soy sauce
1 Tablespoon sherry
1 teaspoon cornstarch
1 teaspoon sesame oil
1 teaspoon crushed red pepper
dash of salt & pepper
pinch of granulated sugar
2 packages square won ton wrappers
oil for deep-frying

1/2 cup ketchup
1/2 cup water
1/4 cup distilled vinegar
1/4 cup granulated sugar
1 Tablespoon chili garlic sauce
dash of soy sauce
1/2 teaspoon sesame oil
1 teaspoon garlic, minced
1 teaspoon fresh ginger, minced


1. Mix together all won ton filling ingredients. Refrigerate at least 1 hour or overnight.

2. When ready to prepare, place 1 heaping teaspoon of filling in the center of each won ton wrapper. Tuck in the sides to seal in filling. Place on lined baking tray. Place in refrigerator for 1 hour.

3. Prepare sauce: In food processor, puree all sauce ingredients. Pour into a heavy saucepan and bring to a boil, stirring constantly until thickened. Keep warm until ready to use.

4. Deep fry won tons in oil until golden and serve with prepared Chili Sweet and Sour Sauce.

    I have a question, can i make half with only chicken and other half with shrimp? Also, i want to serve less than 15-20 people. Like around 10-14. How would the recipe turn out to be?

      Sure, put whatever you’d like in the filling! Just cut all of the ingreds in half to make half a recipe. All should turn out just fine.

    I made your wontons last night but I boiled them in soup instead of frying. They were soooo flavorful and delicious! Thanks for the recipe. 🙂
