Another Wonton Recipe!! Hawaiian BBQ "Cupcakes"

Yes it's no secret by now that I'm in love with Wonton wrappers.  They are low in fat and perfect for weight watcher recipes and easy meals that are portion controlled (that is if you don't pop as many as you can in your mouth .. yes I have had this problem in the past).  

I found yet another amazing recipe on my favorite weight watch gal's site Emily Bites for Hawaiian BBQ "Cupcakes".  These were a hit at a party a while back and I recommend them for heck just about any night!  Easy to make and the kids even like them with the chicken and pineapple how could you go wrong?

Ingredients:
1 2/3 cups cooked boneless, skinless chicken breast, chopped up small or shredded
½ cup chopped fresh pineapple (if you can’t find fresh you can use canned. Just drain it and don’t buy anything in syrup)
4 T spicy barbecue sauce
1 T chopped scallions (plus more for garnish, if desired)
16 wonton wrappers (typically found in the produce section)
4 oz (1 cup) reduced fat 2% shredded cheddar cheese

Directions:
1.    Pre-heat the oven to 375. Lightly mist 8 cups in a muffin tin with cooking spray and set aside.
2.    In a medium bowl, combine the chicken, pineapple, scallions and barbecue sauce. Stir to combine until fully coated.
3.    Push a wonton wrapper into the bottom of each of the eight sprayed cups in the muffin tin. Using about half of the chicken mixture, spoon evenly into the wonton wrappers. Sprinkle about half the cheddar cheese evenly over the top of each cup. Press another wonton wrapper on top and repeat the layering steps with the remaining ingredients.
4.    Bake for 18-20 minutes until golden brown. Let cool 5 minutes before removing from muffin tin.

Yields 8 “cupcakes.” WW P+:  4 per cupcake

Lex Notes: I put my chicken in my crockpot and cooked it then used the mixer to shred my chicken (mental note don't let it spin to long it will go from shredded to mush).  I used canned because that what I had on hand.  I used our favorite BBQ sauce Sweet Baby Ray's.  I also used my favorite low fat cheese in the mexican blend. I also doubled the recipe since we had a good amount of people at the party.



Enjoy, I promise every bite will be amazing!
