Recipe Chicken Wonton Soup

This warming bowl of goodness is so easy and fun to make with all the comforting qualities a soup brings.


For the broth:

  • 5 cups chicken stock
  • 5 cups water
  • 2 tsp soy sauce
  • 3 cloves garlic, smashed
  • 1 thumb fresh ginger, roughly sliced
  • 2 spring onions, cut in half & reserve some greens for garnish

For the wontons:

  • 250g chicken mince
  • 2 tsp soy sauce
  • 2 tsp Chinese cooking wine
  • 2 tsp cornflour
  • 1/2 tsp sugar
  • 1 tsp sesame oil
  • 2 tbsp Buderim Ginger Naked Ginger Sliced, finely chopped (or substitute with our Baking Ginger, no chopping required!)
  • 1 clove garlic, finely chopped
  • 1 spring onion, finely chopped
  • Pinch black pepper
  • 20 wonton wrappers
  • Handful green beans (optional) cut into bit sized pieces


  1. In a large pot, add all soup ingredients.
  2. Bring to boil, reduce heat to low and simmer for 10-15 minutes.
  3. In a mixing bowl, combine all ingredients for the filling. Mix well with a spoon until the filling becomes a little sticky.
  4. Place a wonton wrapper in your hand and put a teaspoon of the filling in the centre of the wrapper.
  5. Using your fingertips, lightly paint the edges of the wrapper with cold water.
  6. Fold in half to make a triangle shape and seal tightly by pinching the edges together with your fingers.
  7. Paint one of the lower side corners of the triangle with water and bring the right and left corners together (water painted side down) and press well to make a traditional curved wonton shape.
  8. Repeat for all wonton wrappers.
  9. When all wontons are ready, discard all solid ingredients from the soup and ensure it is simmering gently.
  10. Carefully add wontons and green beans (if using) and cook for 4 minutes or until wontons rise to the surface and float.
  11. Add salt and pepper to taste and serve with spring onion greens and sesame seeds.
