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.
