Ingredient Notes

  • Asian Chopped Salad Kit: I love using the salad kit as a shortcut. The Asian Chopped Salad Kit usually includes a mix of vegetables like cabbage, carrots, and other greens, along with a sesame dressing and toppings like sesame seeds or wonton strips. You can use a store-bought salad kit or make your own mix of Asian-inspired vegetables and ingredients.
  • Chicken Fingers or Cooked Chicken Tenderloins: I usually grab my favorite deli fried chicken strips, but you can pan-fry, grill, or bake chicken tenderloins or sliced chicken breasts. If you want to marinate the chicken tenderloins in a little sesame dressing and then cook, they have amazing flavor. Or just use any leftover chicken you have on hand.
  • Eggroll Wrappers or Wonton Wrappers: You have the option to use either eggroll wrappers or wonton wrappers for your tostadas’ crunchy base. Eggroll wrappers are perfect for a larger “tostada” shape, while wonton wrappers are a great appetizer or small portion option.
  • Sweet Chili Sauce: Sweet chili sauce is a condiment with a balance of sweetness and spiciness (but not too spicy hot). It’s commonly used in Asian cuisine to add flavor and a hint of heat. You can drizzle this sauce over the assembled tostadas, use it as a marinade for the chicken, or toss the cooked chicken in the sauce.
  • Cooking Oil: Use whichever cooking oil you usually have on hand to fry up your crispy wontons or eggroll wrappers. I prefer a flavorless one like vegetable oil, canola oil, or avocado oil. Peanut oil is also an option.

Variations and Substitutions

  • Asian Chicken Salad: Make the salad mix and add the sweet chili chicken on top. You can fry wontons into slices for extra crunch or make wonton chips to serve along with the salad.
  • Asian Chicken Wonton Cups: Brush or spray each wrapper with oil on both sides. Press wonton wrappers into muffin cups or cupcake pan and bake at 375°F for about 8 minutes or until crispy and golden brown. While cooling, make your salad and cut the chicken tossed in sweet chili sauce into bite-sized portions. Then toss together, or you could add a salad and place chicken on top.
  • Asian Chicken Wonton Tacos: Love those Applebee’s Chicken Wonton Tacos? You can make the shells a taco version and enjoy your own at home.
  • Asian Chicken Wonton Nachos: Fry up wonton wrappers and layer them on a serving plate with the Chinese Chicken Salad for the perfect finger food. 
  • Protein: Besides chicken, you can use other proteins like shredded pork, grilled tofu, or even tempeh for a plant-based option.

How To Make Asian Chicken Wonton Tostadas

Be sure to see the recipe card below for exact ingredients and full recipe instructions!

Step 1 | Prepare Wonton or Eggroll Wrapper Base

Grab a medium skillet and pour in enough oil to cover the bottom.

Heat it up over medium-high heat.

Now, when the oil’s all heated up to around 350℉, gently slide each wrapper in. Fry them on each side until they’re beautifully golden and super crispy – usually takes around 30 to 60 seconds for each side. This gives you perfectly crispy wonton shells.

If you’re looking for a lighter option, you can give your eggroll or wonton wrappers a light spray or brush with oil, then bake or air fry them.

Step 2 | Prepare Asian Salad Mix

Now, onto the salad: take that awesome Asian Salad mix and toss it all together in a large bowl. Yep, those included ingredients are ready to make your salad shine!

Step 3 | Toss Chicken in Spicy Chili Sauce

Time for the chicken: grab those chicken tenders and give them a toss in that sweet chili sauce. I like to go with about 2 tablespoons of sauce for every 2 tenders or each tostada – but hey, you can totally adjust that to your taste.

Feel like a saucy adventure? Go for it! Now, you can either fully coat the tenders or give ’em a drizzle – totally up to you.

Boom, you’re ready to assemble your delicious tostadas! Just pile on that awesome tossed salad. Then lay down the saucy chicken tenders and enjoy these crunchy, flavorful bites.

Tips

  • Crispy Wrappers: If you’re frying the wrappers, make sure the oil is hot enough before adding them. You can test by dropping a small piece of wrapper in – it should sizzle and bubble. Also, don’t overcrowd the pan, so the wrappers can crisp up evenly.
  • Baking Option: If you’re baking the wrappers, arrange them in a single layer on a baking sheet. Brush them lightly with oil to help with browning. Keep an eye on them to prevent burning – they can go from golden to crispy quickly.
  • Fresh Ingredients: To keep the salad crisp and flavorful, assemble the tostadas just before serving. This prevents the salad from becoming soggy.

Recipe FAQs

Are egg roll wrappers and wonton wrappers the same?

Wonton wrappers are made from the same dough as egg roll wrappers, but they’re smaller in size. I use egg roll wrappers when I want to make a meal-sized portion and wonton wrappers for bite-sized portions or appetizers.

Can I bake the wrappers instead of frying them?

Absolutely! To make a healthier version, brush the wrappers with a little oil and bake them in a preheated oven at 375°F until they’re golden and crispy about 5-8 minutes. Keep an eye on them to prevent burning.

What can I use in place of the Asian Salad Kit?

If you can’t find an Asian Chopped Salad Kit (or Asian slaw) or don’t want to use one, you can create your own mix using shredded cabbage (or coleslaw mixture), julienned carrots, chopped green leaf lettuce, sliced almonds, edamame, and any other Asian-inspired vegetables you like. The mix often has sliced almonds, sesame seeds, and fried wontons. You can also purchase a sesame ginger dressing or make it homemade.

Can I use a different type of sauce?

Definitely! While sweet chili sauce adds a unique flavor, you can use other Asian-inspired sauces like teriyaki sauce, hoisin sauce, or even peanut sauce.

How can I adjust the spice level?

Remember, most sweet chili sauces aren’t overly spicy. But if you prefer milder heat, you can dilute the sweet chili sauce with a bit of honey or a neutral-flavored sauce or mayo and/or sour cream to cut it. To make it spicier, add extra chili flakes, sriracha, or a dash of hot sauce.

Storage

Storage: This recipe is best served fresh. If you have leftovers, I recommend storing salad and chicken separately in the refrigerator for 1 to 2 days. Store wontons in an airtight container at room temperature.

Keep in mind the salad will get watery as it sits when dressed.

What to Serve with Crispy Asian Chicken Stacks

Topping Options: Get creative with toppings! Along with the salad and chicken, you can add extra crunch with chopped nuts, seeds, pickled red onion, or even crispy fried shallots. Sliced green onions, fresh cilantro, and a squeeze of lime juice are all delicious toppings too.

These wonton Chicken tacos or tostadas make a complete meal on their own. Some great serving options would be Garlic Edamame, Panara Copycat Thai Soup, or sparkling Green Tea.
