Trader Joe's Chicken Cilantro Mini Wontons Stir Fry
Do you have a favorite frozen food? These little chicken wontons from Trader Joe's with their soyaki teriyaki sauce and a side of guacamole are at the top of my list. See this new Trader Joe's recipe on Sip Bite Go.
Make the guacamole ahead for serving stir fry with wontons. Remove skin and pit from avocado. Dice avocado and add it to a bowl. Add garlic salt, pepper, and cilantro. Use a fork to mash avocado and seasonings together. Set aside.
Pan fry the wontons stir fry. Heat a medium skillet on the stove to medium-high heat. Add olive oil. Add raw diced vegetables. Add frozen potstickers onthe stove for a few minutes, stirring occasionally so the ingredients don't stick to the pan or burn, and so they cook on all sides.
Add teriyaki sauce and simmer. Once wontons are browned, add teriyaki sauce to the pan. (I used Trader Joe's Soyaki Teriyaki). Then add water, cover, and reduce to medium low. Simmer wontons for 3-5 minutes until almost all of the liquid has evaporated. Remove cover from pan and stir pto sticker stiry fry until all water evaporates.
Plate and serve. Remove from heat and plate the stir fry with guacamole and a sprinkle of fresh Thai basil.
Let’s chat wontons. The frozen wontons used in this stir fry recipe are Trader Joe's Chicken Cilantro Mini Wontons. Use any frozen wontons you’d like. Pot stickers can work, too.
Garnish with any fresh herbs. I used Thai basil from my Aerogarden setup for this particular demonstration, but I also love chives and cilantro for this dish.
Note to self: buy 2-3 bags when shopping for these Trader Joe's Mini Wontons in the future! I breezed through the bag in a few days. I love eating easy, fast stir frys for work from home lunches.
This is a great meal prep lunch. Dice up all the vegetables and add them to a container to use for a few days at a time. I love stir frys with wontons or potstickers, or just vegetables for work from home lunches. It only takes about 20-30 minutes to make them - even less when I chop the veggies on a Monday and enjoy them throughout the week.
