How To Make Asian Chicken Wonton Tostadas
✱ Be sure to see the recipe card below for exact ingredients and 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.
Step 4 | Assemble & Serve
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.
- 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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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: 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.

Asian Crunch Chicken Salad on Crispy Egg Roll Base
- 1 bag Asian Salad

- 4 eggroll wrappers, fried or baked
- ¼ cup sweet chili sauce

- In a medium skillet, add enough oil to cover the bottom of the frying pan, over medium-high heat. You can also choose to lightly spray or brush each side with oil and bake or air fry. Place each wrapper in 350℉ heated oil and fry on each side until golden and crispy. This takes 30 to 60 seconds for each side.
- Place Asian Salad mix in a bag and toss with the included ingredients.
- Toss chicken tenders in sweet chili sauce. I use about 2 tablespoons for 2 tenders or each tostada. Use as much or as little as desired. You can also drizzle the sauce rather than coating them if desired.
