Cook time: 30 min Prep time: 10 min Serving size: 10 - 12 Wonton Tacos
  • 3 tbsp cornstarch

  • ½ cup all-purpose flour

  • ¼ cup whole milk

  • ½ tsp salt

  • ½ tsp pepper

  • ½ tsp white pepper powder

  • 3 chicken thighs

  • Chopped cilantro (garnish)

  • Sesame seeds (garnish)

  • 12 wonton wrappers

  • 7 tbsp olive oil

  • 1 tbsp sesame oil

  • 2 tbsp Zhong Sauce

  • 2 cloves garlic, minced

  • 2 tbsp brown sugar

  • 4 tbsp soy sauce

  • 2 tbsp honey

  • 1 tbsp rice vinegar



Put cornstarch and milk in separate bowls.

Put flour in another shallow bowl, then mix in pepper, salt, and white pepper powder.

Cut chicken into bite-sized pieces.

Coat chicken in corn starch, then milk, and then flour before placing it onto a plate.

In a pan, use enough oil to cover the surface of the pan.

On high heat, fry chicken pieces for 6-7 minutes or until golden brown.

In the meantime, mix together the sauce ingredients.

Turn off heat and pour sauce over chicken until covered.

Garnish with sesame seeds.

To make the fried wonton wrappers, coat a separate small pan with enough oil to cover the surface.

On high heat, place a wonton wrapper in the pan until golden brown.

Shape the wrapper with chopsticks to achieve a taco shell-like shape.

Place two pieces of chicken in each wonton wrapper, then garnish with cilantro, and enjoy!
