Spread 1 wonton wrapper on the work surface, covering the other wrappers with a damp kitchen towel to prevent them from drying out. Moisten the edges of the casing with water. Place 1 tbsp. 1/2 tsp (5 mL) heaping filling in centre; fold the 4 corners over the center and pinch together above. Seal each edge. (You can also bring the corners together and turn them to completely enclose the filling.) Repeat with the remaining chicken mixture.
