Easy Chicken Wonton Soup
Chicken Wonton Soup is made with frozen mini wontons, a few chopped vegetables and chicken broth. It’s quick and easy to make, and loaded with flavor. Best of all, this soup is ready to serve in 20 minutes.
How this Chicken Wonton Soup was Created?
We know that college students and even grad students don’t have time to make fancy meals. So when I needed to show my daughter how to make a simple and super easy chicken soup in a matter of minutes, this idea for chicken wonton soup came to me!
We all know that winter is soup season, and soup is really our one essential “go-to” for a quick meal, especially during 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 it into a soup pot. Then added some veggies to it, and let it simmer for a while while I checked on my daily mail, and settled in.
How to Make Easy Chicken Wonton Soup?
1. First, I made it using my staple ingredients as the base for all my soups- celery, carrot, onion, garlic, and olive oil, only this time I simmered these ingredients with chicken broth for a few minutes until they soften.
2. Then at the very last minute, I dropped in frozen mini wontons and simmered for additional few minutes, until they were tender. And the soup was ready.
Great Tips and Options…
- These days, I prefer to keep packages of frozen mini wontons on hand lately. I found them in the freezer section at Trader Joe’s.
- These mini wontons come in a variety of packages filled with cabbage, chicken, and mixed veggies.
- Plus, they’re not expensive at all, they cost around $4.00 per bag.
- 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 as I did here.
- Serve with our Chicken Cauliflower Rice Stir-Fry as the main course, and enjoy a fabulous dinner!
Other Options To Making Chicken Wonton Soup…
- add in some baby Bok Choy
- toss in a few sliced mushrooms
- garnish with some chives or chopped green onions
- drizzle with a little sesame oil
- serve with chili garlic sauce, if desired.
This chicken wonton soup always turns out delicious! Your family and friends will enjoy this soup as much as we do!
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, let’s just say, this was one of those soups I hope she’ll attempt to make it on her own. …I’m being optimistic 🙂
Eat-in or carry out, it’s a versatile recipe to accommodate everyone on the go!! Serve it with our grilled cheese and pear sandwich, or grilled pimento cheese sandwiches and a simple salad and dinner is done!

What a delicious idea! This is definitely worth a trip to Trader Joe's for me! I didn't even know there were such a thing as frozen filled won-tons 🙂
Yum – I bet that is a great dinner. We don't have Trader Joe's but I'll look around and see if I can find these mini's. You are a good mom – now she can find the recipe anytime she needs it!
Oh Tricia thank you ! I try to show them the way, and pray it will pay off. I hope you will find these mini wontons they are fantastic. I even made them in a skillet with some garlic and soy sauce and served them with some sweet chili dipping sauce. Everyone loved them.
