  • 2 cups cooked shredded chicken breast
  • 1 tablespoon taco seasoning
  • ½ cup salsa
  • 24 wonton wrappers
  • 1 ½ cups shredded cheddar cheese
  • Sour cream for serving
  • Sliced green onions for serving
  • Chopped tomatoes for serving


  • Preheat oven to 375°F. Generously coat a 12 cup muffin tin with nonstick cooking spray.
  • Combine cooked chicken, taco seasoning, and salsa in a bowl and stir to combine.
  • Line each cup of prepared muffin tin with a wonton wrapper. Add 1 tablespoon of the chicken taco mixture and sprinkle with 1 tablespoon of cheese. Press down and add another layer of wonton wrapper, taco mixture, and a final layer of cheese.
  • Bake in the preheated oven until the cups are heated through and the edges are golden and crispy, about for 10-12 minutes.
  • Serve with a dollop of sour cream and green onions, if desired


Storage: Store in an airtight container in the fridge for up to 3 days. Reheat in the oven or air fryer to re-crisp the wonton wrapper.
