Made from scratch Wontons! I'm still a bit in awe that I was able to pull this off. I found this recipe from Food Network for Roasted Chicken Purses created by Giada. The recipe calls for wontons. I've never cooked with wontons, so I didn't realize that it was basically just flour, salt, and water. I couldn't find any gluten free wontons but I did remember that I have a case of my beloved Beth's Gluten Free All Purpose Flour. I found a pretty simple recipe for "regular" wontons so I just substituted Beth's. It turned out pretty well!
Gluten Free Wonton Recipe:
- One egg
- 2 cups Beth's Gluten Free All Purpose Flour
- 3/4 tsp. salt
- 1/4 - 1 cup water
Giada's Roasted Chicken Purses recipe was really just a launching off point. I changed a few things more to my taste, but I was still SUPER pleased with the results. The stuffing is pretty simple:
- 1 1/2 cups roasted chicken, shredded
- 1 bar Neufchatel Cheese, room temperature
- 2 tbsp. lemon zest
- 1 tbsp. fresh thyme, chopped
- salt and pepper
- One egg, whipped up for egg wash
- 4 - 5 tbsp. butter
- a bit of paremsan, shredded
Parrish (the boyfriend) ate his with soy sauce and loved it! I was out of tamari :( , so I enjoyed my purses plain. We have some leftover purses that I think I'll have with pasta sauce for lunch tomorrow. Yum!
