Bake un­til crisp and golden, 8-10 min­utes. Line a roast­ing pan with bak­ing pa­per. Mix honey, sesame oil, Chi­nese five-spice and salt in a bowl. Trans­fer chicken to the pan and brush with the honey mix­ture. Roast for 25-30 min­utes or un­til golden, bast­ing oc­ca­sion­ally with pan juices. Set aside for 15 min­utes to rest. Slice the chicken into bite-size pieces. As­sem­ble the won­ton cups with av­o­ca­dos, shal­lot, pick­led cu­cum­bers and chicken. Serve with lime wedges and sweet chilli sauce.
