Chicken Salad Wonton Cup Recipe

Try this Chicken Salad Wonton Cup Recipe. Chicken salad is a classic, pop chicken salad in a wonton or phyllo cup for a beautiful and tasty appetizer.

This is a great party option since you can make the chicken salad and the wonton cups can be made separately a day in advance and quickly assembled just before party time.

My chicken salad is filled with fruit and nuts.  If you prefer a more savory version feel free to use your favorite chicken salad recipe, or save time and buy your chicken salad from your local market or deli.
