Chicken Wonton Soup.

Hey Guys,

Over here in Perth we woke up to heavy rain and lots of wind! Today was a great day for a soupy lunch!

I had spotted a wonton soup by Meg’s mate Curtis Stone. It was in the latest Master Chef magazine. This recipe is pretty well similar. I have converted it and added a few little touches of my own. I guess all the best recipes are an inspiration from somewhere.

I also made my own wanton’s! I reckon this recipe could be endless with the choices you can make for the broth and the wonton fillings.

You can definitely use shop bought wonton wrappers – but don’t be afraid they are easier then you think I grabbed the recipe for the wonton’s on the thermomix forum. Here is the recipe I used as a guide.  WONTON RECIPE

So here is the rest of the recipe 🙂

 

 

 

INGREDIENTS : 

WONTONS:

2x Chicken Thigh Fillets

1 egg

1/4 Bunch of Wombok (Chinese Cabbage)

1 shallot onion

1 Clove of Garlic

1tbs oyster sauce

1tsp Soy Sauce

1/4 tsp Sesame Oil

BROTH:

1l Good Quality Chicken Stock

700g Water

2 stalks Lemon Grass

4cm Ginger

1 Bunch fresh Coriander leaves

2 Spring Onions

30g Chinese Rice Wine

10g Soy Sauce

20g Fish Sauce

1/4 tsp Sesame Oil

Juice Half a Lemon

Salt and Pepper to season

TO SERVE:

Baby Spinach, Fresh Coriander, Fresh Chilli or Chilli Paste, Finely Sliced Spring Onion, Lemon.

METHOD: 

WONTON FILLING: 

  1. Add Shallots, Garlic and ginger and blitz on Speed 6 for 5 Seconds
  2. Add Chicken thighs (Cut in to quarters) and Cabbage piece (Cut in half) with the sauces and egg into the TM bowl and set to closed lid position. Give Two quick turbo blasts.
  3. Set aside to make wonton’s.
  4. Clean the TM bowl
BROTH:
  1. Add ginger to TM bowl and blitz on Speed 6 for 5 seconds.
  2. Add remaining ingredients to the TM bowl and cook for 15 minutes, Varoma Temp on speed Reverse + 1.
  3. Once cooked leave to infuse the flavours until you are ready with the wonton’s.
WONTON PREPARATION:
  1. If using the fresh wonton mixture – there should be enough for 24 wontons. Divide dough into halves and then each half into 12 small balls. From the small balls roll flat into square pieces.
  2. Use cornflour to help roll the wonton’s out and prevent from sticking.
  3. Place a small spoon full of the chicken mixture in the middle of the wonton wrapper.
  4. Rub a touch of water around the edges of the wonton and then fold the wonton in half so that you are left with a triangle.
  5. Press down the edges to seal the wonton.
  6. Bring the two bottom corners into the middle. Use a touch of water to help them stick.
PUTTING IT ALL TOGETHER:
  1. Rub a little cornflour into the TM basket. Put the wontons into the basket. You will fit between 6 and 8 and you will have to cook them in batches.
  2. Strain the broth through a sieve to remove the larger pieces.
  3. Add broth back to TM bowl and inset basket full of wontons.
  4. Cook on 100 degrees, for 5 minutes.
  5. Remove wontons from TM basket and cook next batch.
  6. When you are ready to serve add baby spinach, chilli, lemon, spring onions and coriander to the serving bowl. Add 4 – 6 wontons and pour broth over top.
Here are a few pics of putting the wontons mixture into the wrappers – hope they help!
So there you have it a home made wonton step by step 🙂
Here is the pics of the bowl and then the soup in it.
Hubby gave this a massive 10/10 and even had a second bowl of it! So thumbs up from here 🙂

    Well done — this is so tempting and the photos are super. I hope mine look as good as yours… in the past when making this I’ve tended to over-stuff the wontons and they burst but yours are so perfect and you make it look so easy. Can’t wait to try:)

      Thanks Helene, I must admit I did have one or two burst. I think though working with the home made wonton wrappers might have made it a little more forgiving. I’m thinking of more noodle soups now to cook the noodles in the basket 🙂 You will have to let me know how it goes for you!
