  • 12 wonton wrappers


  • 1 garlic , smashed (Note 1)
  • 1 1/2 tbsp lime juice
  • 2 tsp rice vinegar
  • 2 1/2 tsp fish sauce
  • 1 tsp soy sauce
  • 1 1/2 tbsp canola oil (or grape seed, vegetable or other neutral flavoured oil)
  • 1 tsp sugar (or honey)
  • 1 - 2 birds eye chilli , deseeded and finely chopped (or 1 - 2 tsp of chili paste or hot sauce)

Chicken Salad

  • 1 1/2 cups shredded cooked chicken (I used poached chicken breast)
  • 1 1/2 cups finely shredded cabbage
  • 3/4 cup carrot , finely julienned
  • 1/3 cup finely chopped shallots/scallions (or sub with red onion or eschallots)


  • Sesame seeds
  • Fresh coriander/cilantro leaves


  • Preheat oven to 160C/320F.
  • Place wonton wrappers into a regular muffin tin, moulding it into the cups. Bake for 12 to 15 minutes, until crisp and light golden brown. Remove from the oven and let the cups cool in the muffin tin. Store in an airtight container until required (stays crisp for up to 3 days).
  • Combine Dressing ingredients in a jar and shake to combine. Set aside for at least 10 minutes to allow the flavours to infuse.
  • Combine Chicken Salad ingredients in a bowl and toss to combine.
  • To serve: Discard the garlic clove from the Dressing, then toss it through the Chicken Salad. Divide the Chicken Salad between the cups. Garnish with sesame seeds and cilantro/coriander, if using. Serve immediately.


1. Use the side of your knife to smash a garlic clove so it breaks open but remains in one piece. You don't even need to peel it. The garlic is used to infuse the dressing. You could use minced garlic if you prefer but I find that the garlic flavour is too strong for my taste.
2. The cups are best assembled just prior to serving.
