Notes from the Test Kitchen:
These are just plain fun! We used wonton wrappers and, while they took a good bit of time and effort, we were thrilled with how the finished "sacks" turned out. Try them with ranch or bleu cheese sauce as Kim suggests, or serve 'em up with a dollop of honey mustard. Yum-my!


1 pkg
premade egg roll wrappers (wonton wrappers can be substituted in a pinch)
2 can(s)
chunk white chicken
1/4 c
3 Tbsp
sweet relish
1 dash(es)
hot sauce (to taste)
1/2 c
shredded cheese (i use cheddar, but swiss is also good)
salt (to taste)
pepper (to taste)
3 c
vegetable oil (or enough to fill your favorite fryer)
1 bunch
fresh chives or spring onions (for garnish)
bleu cheese dressing or ranch dressing (as dipping sauce)
