In a mixing bowl combine the crabmeat, cream cheese, and chives or green onion. In a wok or 3-quart saucepan heat 1-1/2 to 2 inches of cooking oil or shortening to 365 degree F.
Place the wonton wrapper with a point toward you. Spoon 2 teaspoons filling just below the center. Fold the bottom point over the filling. Then tuck it under the filling. Roll the wonton wrapper once to cover the filling, leaving about 1 inch unrolled at the top of the wrapper. Moisten the right hand corner of the wrapper with a little water. Grasp the right and left-hand corners of the wrapper. Bring these corners toward you, below the filling. Overlap the left-hand and the right-hand corners. Press the corners together securely to seal.
Fry wontons, a few at a time, in hot oil for 1 to 2-1/2 minutes or until golden, turning once. Using a wire strainer or slotted spoon, remove food fro oil. Drain on a wok rack or on paper towels. Keep warm in a 300 degree F oven while frying remaining wontons.
Serve warm with Plum Sauce or Sweet-and-Sour Dipping Sauce. Makes 10 appetizer servings.
