Origins of chicken wonton
A delectable dish that is now enjoyed globally, the actual origins of chicken wonton are rather unclear. But like dumplings, it is believed that wontons also originated in China. Created during the Tang Dynasty (618-907 AD), this crispy treat became a staple in the kingdom when the Chinese began to eat fried foods. With the rise of the Song Dynasty (960-1279 AD), the chicken was added to the ranks of wonton filling along with pork and shrimp to become the humble dish that you relish today.
But if you are curious to know the first recorded recipe for chicken wonton, it appeared in the Yuan Mei Zi (The Plum in the Golden Vase). In this cookbook written by the poet and scholar Yuan Mei during the Qing Dynasty (1644-1911), he mentions a recipe for “fried dumplings stuffed with minced chicken.” Who knew a poet could create such a masterpiece in the kitchen!
