Air Fryer Wontons

Authentic-style Chinese pork wontons without the added fat of deep frying! 

Air fryer wontons cook in just 10 minutes, and they come out crispy and delicious.

There’s no difference in taste between air fryer and deep fried wontons. The air fryer wontons don’t puff up as much in the center, so they are overall more crispy.
