Wonton Chicken Tacos + Weekly Menu

I saw these, and knew I had to make them. I mean, do finger foods get any cuter than these? The original recipe called for all sorts of goodies, and the beauty is, you can add whatever you want to these little cups. Whatever will fit, that is. They’re not very big :) Perfectly one (big) bite!

I opted for a very simple chicken, bell pepper, and cheese combo. But you could certainly add beans, or top with lettuce, tomato, salsa, sour cream, etc. The sky is the limit! I served these with Crock Pot Chicken Taco meat that were made into burrito bowls, served with black beans, so I chose to leave the beans out and keep it simple. Gina, Nick, Mr. P, and myself finished them all. Guiltlessly!

Kristen and I grocery shopped for a nice homemade meal last night. She chose fettucine with butternut squash, red peppers, and goat cheese. Delicious! And this morning, we splurged with homemade biscuits and gravy (healthied up some!).

During the games later (so much good football on the agenda for today!) I am planning to make more of these Wonton Chicken Cups while Mr. Prevention, of course, has Buffalo Chicken Dip in mind. To each their own ;)

Weekly Menu: September 11th – September 15th

Happy weekend!

    Those little wontons look so cute! I like biscuits with veggie gravy! Although I guess I would rather eat the just the biscuits. I can do without the gravy. Hope you are having a great weekend.

    This post is making me think of all kinds of cool things I could and should do with wonton wrappers! True story, I never had a real biscuit and gravy until we visited Portland and made our way to Pine State Biscuits, after seeing it on the Food Network :)

    Oh, and did I like it? Of course! What’s not to like about fried chicken, bacon, cheese, and an egg smothered in gravy and sandwiched between a fresh biscuit? (Don’t worry, we shared it, to keep some room for other things we needed to try too, haha.)

      Haha, obviously :) I’m new to biscuits and gravy too. I’m not a gravy person unless it’s white breakfast sausage gravy!
