What Is Wonton Soup?

What is wonton soup? I thought everyone knew what chicken wonton soup was. Chicken wonton soup is on every Chinese food menu as the soup of choice. Surprisingly, there actually is quite a few people that do not know what wonton soup is.


The wonton soup recipe has these dumplings, called wontons in a broth that is usually chicken based. Wonton soup recipe is actually quite simple.


Broth For Wonton Soup

The wonton dumplings need a broth. What broth for wonton soup is needed. Mostly the broth is chicken, though I have been to a few Chinese food places that had beef broth. Chicken broth is always the best choice for the broth for wonton soup.

Asian Soup Recipes

I have been hitting the gym with my friend. I am happy to report I lost an inch off my hips, thighs, and butt! Part of me losing weight is eating healthier.
One of the places I will stop for dinner after the gym is Panera.  Panera introduced Asian soup recipes. One of these Asian soup recipes they have is this Thai Chicken Wonton Broth Bowl, that is delish! Plus it is also healthy.

Chicken Filled Dumplings

What makes that broth bowl at Panera so good? The answer is the wonton filling recipe! Panera Bread uses ground chicken to make chicken filled dumplings. That wonton filling recipe would make a great chicken wonton soup recipe.

Chicken Wonton Soup Recipe

So I had to do a little research for Chicken Wonton Soup and how to make wonton. Asian soup recipes are not my specialty. I found out making wontons is actually easy.


How To Make Wonton

I used ground chicken to make the recipe for chicken wontons. I wanted the wonton filling recipe to be similar to Panera’s Chicken Wonton Broth Bowl. To make the wonton:
  • Place a scoop the filling in the center the wonton wrapper
  • Moisten the edges of the wonton wrapper.
  • Fold the wonton over into a triangle
  • Moisten the edges of the triangle again and fold and seal it again
  • Viola! You have a wonton!
