    Serves: 7 

    • 1/3 head red cabbage, sliced and diced
    • 4 small carrots, peeled and grated
    • 1/4 cup coleslaw dressing
    • 1/4 cup red wine vinegar
    • 2 tablespoons soy sauce
    • 2 tablespoons teriyaki sauce
    • 2 tablespoons sesame oil
    • 450g chicken mince
    • 1/4 cup stir-fry sauce
    • 14 wonton wrappers

    Preparation:20min  ›  Cook:10min  ›  Extra time:1hour  ›  Ready in:1hour30min 

    1. Mix cabbage, carrots, coleslaw dressing, vinegar, soy sauce and teriyaki together in a bowl then refrigerate until flavors blend, 1 hour to overnight.
    2. Preheat oven to 180 degrees C.
    3. Heat sesame oil in a frypan over medium heat. Cook and stir chicken mince in the hot skillet until browned and crumbly, 5 to 7 minutes. Add stir-fry sauce, cover frypan, reduce heat to low, and simmer.
    4. Form wonton wrappers into taco shapes and arrange between the cups of an inverted muffin tin.
    5. Bake in the preheated oven until firm and lightly browned, 4 to 5 minutes. Spoon 2 to 3 tablespoons chicken mixture into each wonton taco shell and top with slaw.

    Cook's Notes:

    Chicken breast or turkey can be substituted for the chicken mince, if desired.

    Okay, this is a keeper recipe! I took other reviewers’ advice and omitted the teriyaki sauce. I used pre-shredded cabbage and just kept adding to match the amount of sauce... seemed like more sauce than the amount of cabbage called for. Everyone absolutely loved them. Crunchy, saucy, so flavourful. Oh and I also added sesame seeds.  -  24 Apr 2018  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)


    Followed the suggestion of other reviewers and it came out very well, but it's not an exact replica of Applebee's wonton tacos if that's what you are looking for. It's decent, something different. The coleslaw is, in my opinion, the best coleslaw recipe I've ever had. Very tart and sweet. will be making it for family gathering over the summer. Note: I did use tortilla shells when unable to find wonton wrappers  -  19 Apr 2018  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)


    These were fantastic. I failed at making the “taco” shape, so we just crumbled the wontons and created a salad. It was delicious. Tasted just like Applebee’s  -  11 Mar 2018  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)
