Asian Chicken Wonton Cups

Asian Chicken Wonton Cups

Recently a reader suggested on my Facebook page that I make a potsticker flavored wonton cupcake and these Asian Chicken Wonton Cups are the delicious result. Thanks for the idea, Paula! These wonton cups are stuffed with hearty chicken, mushrooms and cabbage and seasoned with sesame oil, garlic, ginger, soy sauce, sriracha and hoisin sauce (my favorite). My mom was here when I first made them and she said “they have so many layers of flavors!” These Asian Chicken Wonton Cups are filling, flavorful and only 100 calories or 2 Weight Watchers Freestyle SmartPoints! They’re perfect for dinner and reheat well for lunch. You could even set them out as finger food at a party or have one as a snack!

Asian Chicken Wonton Cups

Yield: 12 wonton cups


  • 2 teaspoons sesame oil
  • 1 lb uncooked 99% lean ground chicken breast (you can substitute ground turkey breast)
  • 2 garlic cloves, minced
  • 1 tablespoon fresh minced ginger
  • 3 oz shiitake mushrooms, diced (you can substitute another mushroom if unable to locate shiitake)
  • 1 cup shredded green cabbage (if you’re unable to find green cabbage, I suggest using bagged coleslaw mix)
  • 2 sliced scallions, divided
  • ¼ teaspoon black pepper
  • 2 tablespoons low sodium soy sauce
  • 2 tablespoons Hoisin sauce, divided (found by the other Asian sauces)
  • 1 teaspoon sriracha hot sauce
  • 24 wonton wrappers


  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 sesame oil in a large skillet or saute pan and bring over medium-high heat. Add the ground chicken and cook, stirring and breaking up into small pieces, until the chicken is cooked through. Add the garlic and ginger to the meat and stir together. Cook for another minute and then add the mushrooms, cabbage, half the scallions and the black pepper. Stir together and cook for 2- 3 minutes until the veggies are softened. Remove from heat. Add the soy sauce, 1 tablespoon of the Hoisin sauce, and the sriracha and stir to combine.
  3. 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. Press another wonton wrapper on top and fill with the remaining chicken mixture.
  4. Bake for 18-20 minutes until the wontons are golden brown and the contents are heated through. Remove the muffin tin from the oven and allow to cool for 2-3 minutes before removing from the tin. Drizzle the remaining tablespoon of Hoisin sauce onto the tops of the wonton cups and sprinkle with the remaining sliced green onions.

    When you post SmartPoints are those freestyle or the older plan? Which btw I prefer!

    I wonder what the old Smart Points value of these is.

    If I don’t use the wonton wrappers then this would be zero for the rest of the recipe, yes? Or very minimal for the oil and hoisting sauce.

    I’m confused with step 3. You’re supposed to fill one wonton and then put another one on top? So it’s two wontons per cupcake?

      Yup! Each one has two layers

    I made these for our superbowl party and people loved them! I snuck a few to have for dinner this week. Great flavor and super easy to put together! I was nervous that the wonton’s wouldn’t stick together but they stuck together great. I used the cole slaw mix and it was perfect. Thanks!

    We don’t like mushrooms. Any other vegetables or other substitution suggestions?
