In a large bowl mix chicken, cheddar, onion and sauce together well. If your chicken is particularly chunky, use a pastry cutter to mince everything down.
Lay out a few wrappers on a flat surface, making sure to keep the others covered so they do't dry out. Drop a rounded teaspoon of chicken filling into the middle of each wrapper.
Brush all four sides of the wrapper with a little egg wash and bring the sides up around the chicken mixture to form a purse. Squeeze the edges together so that they are sealed.
Continue until all chicken purses are finished.
Heat oil over medium high heat, in a large, heavy, deep vessel such as a deep sided cast iron skillet. The oil should come no more than halfway up the sides, but also be able to submerge a purse in the oil. Heat to 350 degrees or until a piece of dough immediately sizzles when dropped in the oil. If the oil starts to smoke, lower the heat. It's a little too hot.
Drop each purse into the oil( no more than 5 at a time) and fry until golden brown.
Drain on paper towels. Continue until all the pouches are done.
