Wonton chips are easy to make, super crispy, and work with everything from cinnamon and sugar to lemon pepper and garlic. Serve them with Brownie Batter Hummus, your favorite hot sauce, or a creamy lunchtime salad like this Blackened Chicken Salad.
As much as I like homemade tortillas, once in a while it's good to change things. I have recently used ultra crispy light feathery baked wonton chips instead of baked tortilla chips and they are very good. And if you're like me and can never get to the bottom of the endless pack of wontons, this is a great way to use the leftover wonton wrappers.
At this point, you might be wondering how to use wonton chips and, luckily for you, there is no wrong way to use them. They're great for dipping, so you can serve them with hummus, gravy, yogurt, and beans. They also make a fun replacement for bread in dishes like chicken or tuna salad. You can even serve them instead of toast with dishes like ceviche and poke.
The other way I love to eat baked wonton chips is as a dessert. Sprinkle with cinnamon and sugar and serve as crispy dessert chips or crumble over low-fat frozen yogurt. They also make a killer ice cream sandwich with some yogurt or softened ice cream in between.
What are wonton fries?
Potato chips or Wonton chips are fried or baked wonton wrappers. They are usually used in Asian dishes to add a crisp factor just like a crispy omelette would. They are also sold pre-made and can be eaten as chips with all kinds of condiments. To make a healthier version, you can bake them at home and add the seasoning you want.
Not sure what a wonton wrap is? Wonton wrappers are used in Asian cuisine to prepare dishes such as Rangoon crab, wontons, egg rolls, and many other dishes. The dough is made with flour, eggs, salt and water and is generally thin as paper. Wonton wrappers can be homemade, but many people buy them in the refrigerated section of the grocery store, usually where the tofu is found.

How are crispy wontons made in the oven?
There are a few important things to keep in mind to make sure your wontons get crispy. First, you need to spray the wontons with some kind of cooking spray. This ensures that the wonton can turn golden, but will not soak up too much oil. Wonton wrappers are normally very thin, so adding the weight of too much oil can cause them to lose some crispness.
Second, it's important to make sure the wontons don't stick to the baking sheet. To avoid this, you'll want to use parchment paper or a silicone mat. You should also make sure to leave some space between each wonton when placing them on the baking sheet. You may need more than one baking sheet, depending on how many you are cooking.
Lastly, you'll have to wait to add any liquid seasoning components, like soy sauce or lemon juice, until the wontons are cooked. Adding them in advance can result in soggy wontons.
One last thing, when it comes to shapes, the sky is the limit. You can cut them into diagonals, leave them as squares, or get creative and cut your own shapes with a sharp knife or cookie cutters.
How can I make wonton cups?
Wonton cups are a type of baked wontons where the wonton is baked in a nice little mug. The main one is the same when it comes to cooking wonton chips. Start by spraying a muffin tin with spray oil, and then spray the wonton wrappers with spray oil. Gently press down on the muffin pan, creating a cup. Then bake at 400 degrees for 5-7 minutes or until crisp. Let cool on a rack. Some people like to cut the corners of the wonton wrapper for a prettier presentation, but it is not necessary. This can be done in a regular or mini muffin tin.
Wonton Chip Seasoning Ideas
One of the best parts of making any type of baked porridge is presenting fun and exciting seasoning ideas. These are some of the most popular:
- Cinnamon and Sugar: Make a sweet treat by sprinkling the wonton wrappers with cinnamon and sugar. You can use a sugar substitute for a low calorie option.
- Seasoning Salt: Just like seasoning salt makes potato chips taste amazing, it works great for potato chips made with wontons, too.
- Parmesan Garlic: Sprinkle the wontons with garlic powder before baking, and then finish with some freshly grated Parmesan cheese, black pepper, and a little lemon zest.
- Curry: Use a spray of coconut oil and then sprinkle the fries with your favorite curry powder. Garam masala is a great option that is not too spicy.
- Furikake: If you've never had this Japanese seasoning with nori (seaweed), sesame seeds, and miso, you're missing it. And it is the perfect complement to a new batch of Wonton chips.
