I came up with a few other "pumpkin" recipes that I think you'll love. I'll make them next week.
What I love about this recipe is you can't really taste the pumpkin - so if you're a pumpkin hater, you're still going to be a lover of this recipe. The crispy fried wonton with the creamy, warm chicken center - infused with flavors of ginger, garlic and tangy teryaki and orange. You'll be in flavor heaven!
- 1 pkg wonton wrappers
- 1 (8 oz) pkg cream cheese
- 4 chicken breasts
- 1 small can pumpkin puree
- 1/2 tsp garlic powder
- 1/4 tsp ginger
- 1 box of chicken broth
- 1 bottle Kikkoman's Teryaki glaze
- 1 bottle orange marmalade
- 4-6 cups canola oil
Empty pumpkin puree in small bowl. Add remaining ginger, garlic and a tiny pinch of salt. Blend well. Heat oil to medium high.
Lay out wonton wrappers (about 8 at a time so they don't dry out) on counter. On each wrapper spread 1tsp of cream cheese, piece of shredded chicken and 1 tsp of pumpkin mixture. Fold sides up and press together so your wraps look like garlic bulbs.
When oil begins to sizzle and pop, add wontons. Cooks just a couple minutes until all sides are golden and crisp. Do not leave too long in oil or on one side or they'll burn and turn dark brown. Place them on a dish lines with paper towels so the oil drains off. Cover with a lid and keep warm.
In a small dish combine 1 cup of orange marmalade with 2-3 Tbsp of Teryaki glaze. Heat up on stove or in microwave. Serve warm with wontons!
