Directions

In a small bowl combine the chicken, ricotta cheese, lemon zest, thyme, salt, and pepper. Stir to combine.

On a dry work surface place 8 wonton wrappers. Place a rounded teaspoon of the chicken mixture in the center of each wrapper. Using a pastry brush, brush the egg wash around the chicken mixture. Bring four corners of the wonton square together over the filling to form a purse. Press the edges together tightly to form a seal. Wipe the board with a towel until dry and continue making batches of 8 with the remaining wonton skins

Meanwhile, bring a large pot of salted water to a boil over high heat. Add
the purses and cook until they float to the surface, stirring occasionally, about 4 to 5 minutes. Drain the ravioli.

Melt 4 tablespoons of butter in a medium skillet. Turn off the heat, add the cooked pyramids and gently toss. Transfer the pyramids to 4 serving plates. Sprinkle with grated Parmesan and sprinkle with salt and pepper. Serve immediately.

    These are good, tasty and easy. It was somewhat difficult to get all the air out of the package and that impacted the cooking. I also set them in a hot buttered pan to give them an added crunch on the bottom. Bellissima
