Barbeque Chicken Appetizer

I am always looking for new appetizer recipes, so when I found this one I had to try it! It is so good, I'm sure it will be a hit at any party!

1 cup cooked diced chicken
1 teaspoon Cajun seasoning
3 green onions with about 3 to 4 inches of green, coarsely chopped
1/4 teaspoon salt
Dash black pepper
3 tablespoons purchased or homemade barbecue sauce
24 to 30 wonton wrappers
Oil for deep frying
Barbecue sauce for dipping
In a food processor, a food chopper, or by hand, finely mince the chicken and onions with seasonings. Add 3 tablespoons of barbecue sauce and process or mix well to combine. Put 1 teaspoon of the chicken mixture in the center of a wonton wrapper. Lightly brush water all around the edge of the wrapper. Fold over and press the edge all around to seal or follow instructions on the wonton wrapper insert for folding. Keep filled wontons covered with a damp dish towel to keep them from drying out, and keep the unused wrappers covered.
Heat oil in a deep fryer to 370°. Fry the filled wontons, 3 or 4 at a time, until golden brown. Transfer to paper towel-lined plate and keep warm. Serve with barbecue sauce.
Makes about 2 to 2 1/2 dozen appetizers.
