Easy Chicken Wonton Soup

Sharing is caring!


Chicken Wonton Soup is easy to make and loaded with flavor!  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, super easy chicken soup in a matter of minutes, this idea for chicken wonton soup was created! Best of all, this soup is ready to serve in 20 minutes! 

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, 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 Chicken Wonton Soup

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.

Then at the very last minute, dropped in frozen mini wontons and simmered for 2 minutes more and the 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 as I did here.

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  ๐Ÿ™‚

    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.
