Our Review For This Product:

These Trader Joe’s Wontons Mini Chicken Cilantro are delicious, the doughy shell gives way satisfyingly when bit into, and the filling is savory and fresh. The chicken is delicious, despite the small portion size, but it’s the cilantro that drives the flavor and aroma here. The cilantro, with its strong herbal flavor, ties the dish together perfectly.

The Trader Joe’s Wontons Mini Chicken Cilantro are sold at a price of $3.29, and while they might be a little bland without the cilantro, that one ingredient is what makes these wontons so delicious. Not that we dipped ours in anything, but I can imagine a little soy sauce would really set these off.

In terms of calorie content, these Chicken Cilantro Mini Wontons from Trader Joe’s are actually quite reasonable. Half a bag of Trader Joe’s Chicken Cilantro Mini Wontons is only about 200–250 calories because each serving (four pieces) has only 50 calories.
