These southwest chicken bites are filled with a solid southwest chicken flavor with cilantro, salsa, bell peppers and garlic. The bites are made from wonton wrappers and made crispy by baking in the oven. Dip them in some ranch or cilantro lime ranch dressing and you have a game time winning recipe!

Crispy Southwest Chicken Bites


  • 2 tbsp oil
  • ½ cup yellow onion, diced
  • ½ cup red bell pepper, diced
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 2 chicken breasts, cooked and shredded
  • ¼ cup cilantro, diced
  • ¼ cup verde salsa
  • 2 tbsp ranch dressing (we used Hidden Valley Organic)
  • Wonton wrappers
  • Egg white for brushing


  1. Pour the oil into a skillet set to medium high heat. Place the onions and bell pepper in the skillet and cook until tender--approximately five minutes. Add in the garlic and cook for an additional 1-2 minutes. Once garlic is cooked, remove from heat and set the pan aside.
  2. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees. In a large bowl place the shredded chicken, cilantro, salsa and onion and bell pepper mixture. Stir until combined.
  3. In the center of a wonton wrapper, place 1 tablespoon of chicken mixture. lightly brush the outer edges of the wonton wrapper with egg white, then press the wonton edges together to form a triangle. Seal edges completely.
  4. Place the bites on a lightly greased baking sheet. Cook at 350 degrees for 15-20 minutes, flipping them halfway through cooking.
  5. Remove from oven, serve with ranch dressing, cilantro lime dressing, or salsa if desired. (We loved to dunk ours in a mixture of ranch and salsa).
