Chicken Wonton Soup

Chicken Wonton Soup. We know that college students, and even grad students don’t have time to make fancy meals. So I decided to show my daughter how to make a simple, super easy chicken wonton soup in a matter of minutes! With a few staple ingredients and a package of frozen mini wontons, anyone can make this delicious soup to serve anytime!

We all know that fall is soup season, and soup is really our one essential “go-to” for a quick meal, especially during the fall’s chilly nights.  My family loves to come home to the smell of something cooking in the kitchen and when they realize it’s soup- they’re even happier.

Making this chicken wonton soup was a breeze! As soon as I got home, I pulled open a carton of organic broth, threw into a soup pot, added some veggies to it and let it simmer for awhile while I checked on my daily mail, and settled in.

I made it using my staple ingredients as I do for all soups- celery, carrot, onion, garlic and olive oil, then I simmered these ingredients with chicken broth for a few minutes until they soften, then at the very last minute, dropped in frozen mini wontons and simmered for 2 minutes more and soup was ready.

These days, I prefer to keep packages of frozen mini wontons on hand lately.  I found these from Trader Joe’s. They come in a variety of packages filled with cabbage, chicken and mixed veggies and they’re not expensive at all.

Mini wontons are convenient to pull out when you need a quick appetizer before dinner, or just when you need to drop them into a pot of soup like I did here.

Now, to end the story I started, when my daughter came home, she quickly picked up a tub of this soup and said she was in a hurry while she was running out the door.  And even though I showed her how to make this Chicken Wonton Soup, lets just say, this was one of those soups I hope she’ll attempt to make it while she’s at school.
