To make the filling:
Heat one teaspoon of oil in a skillet and sauté the onions for about 5 minutes, or until soft. Add the garlic and ginger, and cook for another minute. Add the chicken, curry paste, coconut milk, chutney, lime juice and salt. Cook, stirring often, until bubbly and thickened. Cool slightly, or chill before spooning into wonton cups.
