Applebee's WonTon Tacos

Holy yum!  these were amazing, time consuming, but everyone raved about them.  The dish itself was simple but frying the won ton wrappers took longer than I expected.  It helps if you use a deep fryer like I did.  Also roll up a piece of foil and put it inside the won ton hold it in the oil for a few seconds with tongs and then the foil should help it to hold its shape.

1lb boneless skinless chicken breasts (sliced into small chunks)
2 tablespoons olive oil
4 tablespoons stir fry sauce
8 tablespoons Asian toasted sesame dressing
2 tablespoons soy sauce (use LOW sodium)
2 tablespoons teriyaki sauce
1 cup coleslaw mix
2 tablespoons Asian toasted sesame dressing
10 wonton wrappers
oil (for frying)
4 tablespoons green onions (sliced)
4 tablespoons cilantro (chopped)
4 tablespoons red onion (diced)

In a bowl or sealable plastic bag. Combine stir fry sauce, Asian toasted sesame dressing, soy sauce, and teriyaki sauce.
Add chicken and mix well with the sauce.
Cover and refrigerate for 1 hour.
In a medium bowl toss coleslaw mix with 2 tablespoons of Asian sesame dressing.
Set aside.
Heat olive oil in a wok over high heat.
Add chicken with the marinade and stir fry until the chicken is fully cooked.
Remove from the wok and transfer to a bowl.
Add about 1/2 inch of oil to the wok over medium high.
Fold the wonton wrappers into a triangle formation but do not seal.
Place into the hot oil and fry until golden brown on one side.
Turn once and fry until golden brown on the other side.
Drain on paper towels.
To make tacos- place a small amount of the chicken mixture into the bottom of the fried wonton.
Top with coleslaw mixture, green onion, cilantro and red onion.
