Chicken Broccoli Alfredo Wonton Cupcakes

Note: In the past I have always made my wonton cupcakes in batches of 8 for no other reason than I lived by myself when I started making them and 12 gave me too many leftovers! I figured it would be easy for people to add another half again to the recipe and make a full pan if they wanted, but I think it confused people. I have gotten several questions lately asking what type of muffin pan I use since theirs has 12 cups or assuming I use a jumbo pan, etc. So, with that said, I made a full pan of 12 this time! My husband was happy because he always tells me I don’t make enough wonton cupcake leftovers.

Chicken Broccoli Alfredo Wonton Cupcakes

Yield: 12 wonton "cupcakes"

Ingredients:

  • 1 ½ teaspoons olive oil
  • 1 cup broccoli florets, chopped small
  • 2 cups cooked shredded or diced chicken breast
  • 1 cup light Alfredo sauce (I use Classico Light, it’s my favorite)
  • ½ teaspoon Italian seasoning
  • 1/8 teaspoon black pepper
  • 24 wonton wrappers
  • 1 ½ cup shredded 2% Mozzarella cheese
  • 1 tablespoon grated Parmesan cheese

Directions:

  1. Pre-heat the oven to 375. Lightly mist 12 cups in a standard muffin/cupcake tin with cooking spray and set aside.
  2. Pour the oil into a skillet and bring over medium heat. Add the broccoli and cook for 5 minutes or until broccoli is tender, stirring occasionally.
  3. Transfer the broccoli to a mixing bowl and combine with the chicken, alfredo sauce, Italian seasoning and pepper. Stir until well combined.
  1. Push a wonton wrapper into the bottom of each of the sprayed cups in the muffin tin. Using about half of the chicken mixture, spoon evenly into the wonton wrappers. Sprinkle about half the Mozzarella cheese evenly over the top of each cup. Press another wonton wrapper on top and repeat the layering steps with the remaining chicken mixture and Mozzarella cheese. When complete, sprinkle ¼ teaspoon of Parmesan cheese over the top of each wonton cup.
  1. Bake for 18-20 minutes until golden brown.

    Mmmmm… sounds wonderful! I love the Classico Light Asiago Romano Alfredo. I’ll probably use sauteed chopped red bell peppers instead of broccoli. Thank you Emily!

    This recipe looks so good! I do have a quick question. I was wondering what do you do with the rest of your Alfredo sauce? Is there another recipe you make to finish it off that week or do you freeze the remaining amount. I have avoided making recipes like this because it seemed wasteful but hopefully you can give me a hint. Thanks!

    These were delicious. Made them today! I used that frozen microwave steamer broccoli to save some time. Really good and so quick to put together!

    Delicious. Even my husband was impressed. Can these be frozen and, if so, are they frozen in muffin tin before being cooked?

    I had to get on here and leave a review. These “cupcakes” are soo delicious! Now I’m anxious to try your other “cupcakes”. It’s also nice that you have the calories as well as the points value. Thanks Emily for your recipes and your website.

    This was my first time trying one of your wonton cupcake recipes, and I think I’m addicted! I left out the parmesan cheese topping and it was still delicious. I had two cupcakes and a side of veggies as a meal, and the leftovers were just as good! Thanks for another great recipe, can’t wait to try out the others!

    I have avoided Alfredo sauce all my life but your recipe was so appealing that I had to try it. Amazing! I pared down the recipe to make only 4 cupcakes (just for me) and I had 2 for dinner with a nice salad. I can’t believe that these little babies are only 4 points plus each. Only willpower and a WW meeting in 2 days stopped me from eating all 4. I will definitely try your other cupcakes and the Alfredo pizza as well. Thanks for helping all of us who struggle with weight loss with your fabulous recipes. Having lost 78 lbs so far, I look forward to your blog and recipes to help me through my last 15 lbs. I hope that you realize the impact you have made in so many of our lives. Thank you.

    Love these cupcakes! They have become my go-to recipe for using up leftover chicken from rotisseries and roasts.
