Thai Chicken Salad Wonton Cups + $15 Blouse

I pinned this recipe several weeks ago and have been wanting to make it.  I decided Memorial Day weekend was the perfect time to try it out.  If you love Thai food and peanut sauce you will love these.  They make a great appetizer and they look so pretty sitting out too!

Via the Cozy Apron

1 rotisserie chicken shredded

1 small head Napa Cabbage shredded

1/2 head purple cabbage shredded

4 green onions sliced

1 large carrot shredded

1 baby bok choy shredded

2 tablespoons cilantro

 

SPICY PEANUT DRESSING

1/4 cup creamy peanut butter

2 tablespoons honey

2 garlic cloves minced

2 tablespoons soy sauce

2 tablespoons rice vinegar

2 teaspoons sriracha

1 tablespoon canola oil

1 tablespoon water

Whisk all together.

-Preheat your oven to 350°, and spray two mini-muffin tins with cooking spray (24 cups).

-Take each won ton square, dust off any excess corn starch, and carefully press into the mini-muffin molds; spray the won ton squares with cooking spray, and bake for about 10-12 minutes, or until golden-brown and crispy; allow to cool slightly, then remove from muffin tins to cool completely before filling.

-Prepare the salad by adding the chicken, plus the remainder of the ingredients up to and including the chopped cilantro, to a bowl; add in about 2 tablespoons of the Spicy Peanut Dressing, plus about half of the crushed peanuts (about 2 tablespoons worth), and gently toss to coat.

-Add equal amounts of the Thai Peanut Chicken Salad to each cup, then drizzle each with a little extra dressing on top, and sprinkle over a little of the remaining crushed peanuts over each as garnish; serve immediately.

(If you’d like to prepare this ahead, you can make the salad but don’t toss with the dressing—just keep it cold in the fridge; when ready to serve the cups, toss the greens with dressing, and spoon into won ton cups in order to keep them crisp, cool, and fresh.)

I found the cutest Blouse at Old Navy last week.  It is on sale right now for only $15.  I am wearing a size XS.  It also comes in a black print as well.
