  • Fine sea salt: The fine salt enhances flavor and provides a salty crunch to the chips while also sticking well to the wonton wrapper surface.

For savory wonton chip seasoning:

For sweet cinnamon brown sugar wonton trips:

  • Coconut brown sugar: The brown sugar caramelizes slightly when cooked, adding sweetness.
  • Cinnamon powder: Cinnamon provides warmth and a sweet spice flavor to complement the brown sugar.

Egg roll wrappers are thicker than spring roll wrappers so please adjust the cooking time accordingly. Both wraps are larger so slice them into 3-inch squares.
  • Spices/seasonings: You can also season wonton wraps with garlic powder, onion powder, ground black pepper, everything bagel seasoning, or chili powder. The possibilities are endless!

  • Loosely roll up the wrapper away from you, sealing the tipped end with a dab of water. Be careful not to wrap too tight.
  • For best results, deep fry or air fry these – baking may cause the centers to not cook fully.

How to make-ahead and store

These air fried wonton strips store well so they can be made up to 1-2 days in advance. After cooking and cooling the chips completely, store them in a large airtight container (rather than a bag) and keep them in a cool, dark cupboard.

An airtight container will help keep the chips crisp and prevent them from getting crushed or soggy. Properly stored chips will keep fresh for up to 2 weeks after being made. Prepare a big batch ahead of time for quick snacking anytime!

For store-bought leftover, unused, wonton wrappers, wrap them tight in a saran wrap to maintain the moisture level then place them in a freezer-friendly bag. You can store them in the fridge for up to 1 month or freezer for 6 months. Defrost a night before in the fridge.

What to serve with air fry wonton wrappers

These air fried wonton chips pair well with a variety of dishes. With a batch of them on hand, you’ll be ready to quickly elevate many meals.

Expert tips

  • Use yellow wonton wrappers for golden color, if desired. Cut into fun shapes like strips, triangles, and bowties.
  • Generously coat wonton pieces in oil in a single layer for even crisping.
  • Adjust cooking time based on wrapper thickness. Homemade needs longer than store-bought.
  • Season chips before and right after cooking for maximum flavor.
  • Allow to fully cool before storing in a container to retain crispiness.
  • Make 1-2 days ahead. Enjoy for up to 2 weeks after cooking.
  • Get creative with seasonings and dip pairings.
  • Cook in small batches to prevent uneven browning.
  • Closely monitor timing – strips cook faster than rolled shapes.
  • Watch color rather than time – remove when just turning golden.


What are wonton chips made of?

They are made from thin wonton wraps that are cut into shapes, fried or baked until crispy, and seasoned with salt, spices, or sweet mixes like cinnamon sugar.

Why are my chips not crispy in the air fryer?

Air fry wonton chips may lack crispiness if the air fryer is overcrowded, the temperature or time is incorrect, or there is not enough oil coating on the wrappers. For the crispiest chips, fry in batches at 350F, generously coat in oil, and adjust time-based on wrapper thickness.

Should I use white or yellow wonton wrappers?

You can use either white or yellow wonton wrappers. The color doesn’t affect taste, but yellow wrappers will provide a golden brown finish after frying or baking.

Can I substitute egg roll wrappers for wonton wrappers?

Yes, you can substitute egg roll wrappers. However, egg roll wrappers are thicker so adjust air fryer time accordingly. A better substitute is spring roll wrappers which are thinner like wonton skins. Cut larger wrappers into 3-inch squares before frying.

Savory wonton chip seasoning:

Sweet cinnamon brown sugar wonton chips:

  • 1 tbsp coconut brown sugar
  • ½ tsp cinnamon powder


To make wonton strips:

  • Take a piece of wonton wrapper and use a small pairing knife to make two slices so that you’ll have 3 equal width and length wonton strips.

Triangle chips:

  • Take a piece of wonton wrapper and use a small pairing knife to make one slice from one end of corner to the opposite so that you’ll have two equal sized triangles like tortilla chips.

Twisted chips (bow-tie chips):

  • Take a piece of wonton wrapper and make one slice in the middle to divide the wrapper into 2 equal strips.
  • Make a small slit in the center of one piece and take one end to fold underneath through the center slit and gently pull the end out. Carefully straighten the twist so to not break it apart.

Rolled-up chips (cigar-style chips):

  • This style works best with either air fryer or deep fryer. It does not work well in the oven. Deep fry will have the best texture.
  • Place a piece of wonton wrapper and with one pointy end toward you. Sprinkle and distribute a small amount of cinnamon brown sugar in the middle area of the wrapper. Loosely roll up the wrapper away from you and seal the tip end with a small amount of water.
  • Please do not wrap the cigars too tight or the center will not be cooked through.

To season the chips:

  • Spray the wonton strips with oil on both sides generously. You can also use a brush to help distribute the oil evenly, if needed, and lightly sprinkle salt on both sides.
  • For savory, sprinkle the chips with a small amount of toasted black and white sesame seeds.
  • For sweet, sprinkle the cinnamon brown sugar coating on both sides.

To cook the chips:

  • Air fry: Spray the air fryer basket with oil. Place the wonton chips in the basket with some space between them. Air fryer at 380F for 6 minutes for homemade gluten free wonton wrappers. Or 350°F for 4 to 5 minutes (check and flip after 2 minutes) for store-bought wrappers.
  • For cigar-style chips: Air fry at 380F for 6 minutes for store bought wrapper (add 2 more for homemade wrappers.)
  • Bake: Place the wonton chips or strips on a large lined sheet pan with some space between them. Keep them flat. Bake at 425F for 5-7 minutes for homemade gluten-free wonton wraps, or 400F for 5-6 minutes for store-bought wonton wrappers.

To serve:

  • Immediately after they are out of fryer, while still hot, sprinkle with a touch more salt and sesame seeds (savory version) or dust and toss with more cinnamon brown sugar (sweet version).
  • The chips will remain crisp even after cooled down and they pair extremely well with my egg roll sauce. Highly recommend it!

To store:

  • Allow the chips to cool to room temperature. The chips store well in a large airtight container and in a dark and cool cupboard for 2 weeks.


  • Store-bought wonton wrappers are thinner than homemade therefore they cook much faster. Watch them carefully when you cook.
  • You can use either white or yellow colored wonton wrappers. The color will not affect the taste. However, if you prefer a golden brown color, only the yellow colored wonton wrappers will achieve that.
  • For the rolled-up cigarette version, please do not wrap it too tight otherwise the inside of the roll won’t cooked through. This style does not work well in the oven. I recommend either deep frying or air frying. Deep fry will have the best texture.
  • This recipe is flexible. You can easily double or reduce the quantity to your liking.
