When I'm mingling at a holiday party, I tend to reach for protein-packed appetizers that you don't need a lot of to feel satisfied. Wontons and mini egg rolls are a few such appetizers that fit the bill; the problem is, those deep-fried hors d'oeuvres can rack up calories and fat, fast.
The solution? Bake your wontons instead. For these Thai chicken wontons, I used the flavors of one of my favorite Thai appetizers: larb chicken salad, a spicy, sweet, and tangy mixture of crisp lettuce, chiles, fish sauce, red onions, and ground chicken. Adding chopped lettuce, cilantro, and onion to the wonton mixture bulks it up without a lot of calories. In fact, each wonton clocks in at only 43 calories and 1.5 grams of fat.
