Layered Sweet & Sour Asian Dip with Wonton Dippers

 I’m in full tailgate recipe development mode! We need little pizzazz in our regular tailgating recipes this year so I decide to try recipes early this year.

I developed this Layered Sweet and Sour Asian Dip with Fried Wonton Dippers and couldn’t be more pleased with the outcome. It’s everything a dip should be. It’s creamy, tangy with a little crunch from the veggies on top.

I used a rotisserie chicken, but this recipe would be a great way to use leftover chicken. You could even use canned chicken if you desire.

I also used a store-bought sweet and sour sauce. Like I said, I wanted a super delicious, but very easy recipe. Tailgating recipes should be easy…and delicious!

With the use of rotisserie chicken, cook time on this appetizer recipe is low. In fact, you can use any leftover chicken, but I just love a rotisserie chicken.

You’ll simply layer the ingredients in a lage shallow dish, heat through and you’re ready to serve.

It’s just that quick!

 This is a great dip for any party or potluck function you have. It makes a great game day appetizer because it’s so unique. You won’t have to worry about someone showing up with the same dip (most likely.)

I love this with fried wonton wrappers, but if you don’t have time to fry them (because they are hands on and time-consuming) purchase tortillas chips instead.

    I made this for a neighborhood dip off (think Chili cook off except for dip) and won 1st place! Thank you. The only change I made was I baked the wontons instead of frying them.
    The wonton chips were a big hit. Here is what I did:
    I cut the wontons wrapper diagonally into 4 triangles, I put them on a baking sheet in a single layer and I salted them with salt (used a grinder) and baked them for 6-7 minutes at 350 degrees.

    1. I did not bake it. I assembled it and served it immediately at room temp. It could be baked or even served made ahead and refrigerated and served cold. To bake, I would heat it at 350 degrees 25 to 20 minutes.

  4. I can’t wait to make this recipe for the Poker Girls…. they are going to go WILD for it!!

    1. Yay!! Poker girls sounds fun, we used to play bunco, but poker sounds much more fun!! Hope you all love it!

  5. I would love the little condiment pans…or anything really. The crock, etc, lol.

  6. OMG Paula, this dip has me so excited for my next football party! I know everyone will LOVE this and be begging for the recipe! 😀

  7. I actually really love the Texas serving plate with the dip holder since I just moved to Texas! I better start showing some Texas pride, right?
