Crispy Chicken Wontons

I made these recently for a night with friends and they were so good!

Crispy Chicken Wontons
8 ounces cream cheese
3 tablespoons mild green chili, diced
1 tablespoon jalapeno, diced
1/8 cup seasoned bread crumbs
1/4 teaspoon garlic powder
1/2 teaspoon salt
2 cups cooked chicken breast, diced finely
1 pkg wonton wrappers
vegetable oil for frying
In large bowl, combine cream cheese, chili, jalapeno, breadcrumbs, garlic, salt and chicken. Mix well.
Wontons may be made in two ways: place 2 teaspoons of filling in center of wrapper, moisten one side with egg white to seal and roll. This makes a larger size, long roll.
Or, place 1 teaspoon in center of wrapper, moisten one side with egg white and fold diagonally to make a triangle. You will have more appetizers, smaller in size.
Press edges together and seal. In deep saute' pan on high, heat oil and fry wontons until golden, about 1 and 1/2 minutes. These may be served immediately or frozen and microwaved or reheated in oven. They reheat well.
Serve with sweet and sour sauce.
*We really liked these and gave them a 10

We love wontons. We like them with crab and cream cheese. We also love just fried won ton skins :)
