Chicken Wonton Soup

What is chicken wonton soup?

Chicken wonton soup is a delicious restaurant-style soup with chicken wontons and vegetables cooked in a flavorful broth.

I love making wonton soup, as it is quick, filling plus I have added a lot of vegetables to the soup and the soup is flavourful. I usually make soup for dinner as it's very convenient.

My freezer normally has a pack of homemade chicken wontons stored for quick dinners. They are so convenient. You can get store-bought ones too. 

I have explained in detail how to make Chicken Potstickers and how to fold dumplings too.

How is wonton made?

I have shared a recipe for chicken potstickers (wontons/dumplings), here I have shared in detail how to make the chicken filling for wontons/potstickers and how to fold the wontons.

Here, to fold the wontons, apply water on all the sides of the wrapper.
Bring opposite ends of the wrapper together and seal only at the center.
If you are folding the wonton from the left side, then start folding the wrapper facing you, toward the center, to form a pleat and press to seal. Continue this till you have reached till end of the left side.
Repeat the same on the right side.

Tips to make homemade wonton soup:

  • To make this soup quick, use store-bought frozen mini wontons.
  • Use vegetables if you like them in the soup along with wontons but if you like clear soup with just wontons then skip using vegetables.
  • Adjust sauces as per your taste preferences.
  • You can customize the soup by adding beef or pork wontons too.
  • If you are making wontons at home then make sure that you do not add a lot of filling to the wontons. Adding a lot of filling to wontons will make them break while cooking.
