Ingredients

Apricot Sauce
Chicken Wontons

Instructions

Apricot Sauce
To a medium bowl, add the apricot preserves, mustard, teriyaki sauce, and sugar-free ketchup. Whisk until the sauce is smooth. Pour the apricot sauce into a small serving dish.   
Chicken Wontons
To a large bowl, add the ground chicken, salt, black pepper, scallions, soy sauce, garlic, shallot, sesame seed oil, and cornstarch. Mix to combine.   
Arrange a wonton wrapper on your countertop and add 1 teaspoon of the ground chicken mixture to the center of the wonton.   
Using a brush, brush the edges of the wonton wrapper with a little water. Bring the middle of each of the four edges together and press the middle to seal the wonton. You should have a chicken wonton that looks like a Rangoon. You can also fold the wonton wrapper diagonally to create a triangular chicken wonton.   
Continue filling and wrapping the wonton wrappers until all the chicken filling is gone. 
To Fry The Chicken Wontons
In a deep skillet, add oil. Place it over medium-high heat and heat the oil to 350 °F. Carefully lower the wontons into the hot oil and fry them for 3-5 minutes until they are golden brown. Drain the wontons on a wire rack and continue cooking the chicken wontons until all of them have been fried. 
To Bake The Chicken Wontons
Preheat the oven to 400 °F. Arrange the chicken wontons on a wire rack set over a rimmed baking sheet. Spray the chicken wontons with nonstick cooking spray and bake them for ten minutes until golden brown.   
To Assemble
Place the chicken wontons onto a serving dish and serve with the apricot sauce.
