Chicken Taco Cups

This was a nice meal to have in the freezer, they unthawed pretty quick when I realized that I was going to have extra people for lunch! :) We have been in the process of redoing a big chunk of our house (mainly the windows...) and my dad and the guy that works with him have been over frequently. This means eating lunch at our house... Well, sometimes they end up coming over when I don't think that they are going to and I have to scramble to put something more on the table then what I have planned! :) Thanks dad... Anyhow, since they weren't supposed to be coming on this day I hadn't taken these out until they showed up. They were still a little frozen at lunch time, but I threw them in the oven anyhow. They turned out awesome!! It was the perfect lunch for all of us!

Chicken Taco Cups

Press wonton wrapper into a regular size muffin tin. Bake at 375 for 5 minutes. Spoon a round tablespoon of chicken mixture into wonton. Sprinkle remaining 1/2 cup cheese over top of cup. Place in freezer bag, if freezing at this point.

To prepare: thaw completely and bake at 375 for 15 minutes.
