Mix cubed chicken with coconut milk, chili paste, peppers and cilantro.
Allow to sit for at least an hour to absorb flavours.

Then, taking a cube of chicken (or two, depending on size), center it in a
wonton skin,gather the four corners of the skin with your fingers moistened
in the cornstarch paste, and twirl the skin until the dumpling looks like a
Hershey's Kiss.

Allow these to rest on waxed paper or a cookie sheet sprayed with PAM. Deep
fry these in sufficient oil to cover, a few at a time. I use peanut oil
but anything that can take a high heat is fine. Olive oil smokes too much.

Remove from hot oil when they float and are golden brown. Be careful, they
cook very fast.

I usually provide a peanut sauce to dip these in but they're fine by

I do not use exact measurements when I cook, so the above are only
approximations of what I use. If it looks right, it probably will be fine.

These work out great for parties, too.
