Wonton soup is one of my favorite soups to have when I am feeling sick or want chinese take out style soup at home. To achieve an authentic flavorful broth takes time, technique and patience. The broth in this recipe is quick, easy and works for a weeknight meal or when you are feeling under the weather. A quick flavorful broth and bite sized wonton dumplings make the perfect soup.
