These boiled chicken wontons are delicately flavored and would go great in a chicken-based soup.

  • Scoop about 1 teaspoon chicken mixture and place into the center of a wonton wrapper. Moisten 2 adjacent edges of the wrapper with water and fold into a triangle. Connect the two lower points of the wrapper and moisten to seal and make a hat shape. Repeat with remaining chicken and wonton wrappers.

  • Bring a large pot of water to boil. Stir wontons into boiling water. Add 1/2 cup cold water and allow water to return to a boil. Repeat boiling with another 1/2 cup cold water. Wontons are ready when chicken is no longer pink in the center, about 5 minutes. Drain.

This recipe was delicious. I put the chicken and all the other ingredients besides the egg in the blender and it speeded up the prep time by quite a bit. These are the only wontons my husband will eat because they are very lean. The only thing I would add next time is some cracked pepper. Other then that it is already a new favorite in our house.

Too much sesame oil, it was disgusting if you are going to make it us 1/2 teaspoon sesame oil and the tablespoon it calls for, would not try this recipe again. Read More

I really like this. Chicken is sometimes bland but this was excellent. My only problem was that the filling didn't bind quite how I wabted it to. I also put more fillings in the wrapper than suggested. I steamed half and fried the other half. I prefer steamed wontons but both were good. Read More

I added 1/2 carrot that I julienned into the stock before I added the wontons and it was a nice addition. Read More

If you're making your own wrappers DO NOT BOIL I used my recipe for the wrappers and upon boiling them they fell apart and left a gooey mess in the bottom of my pot. Read More

I used cooked chicken because it was handy. The Wontons turned out great and even impressed my very skeptical millennials. This will be a 'go to' recipe. Read More

These wontons are excellent!! We tried them fried and boiled in soup and BOTH were excellent! These are much better than the frozen wontons you can buy and are so delicious. My husband and 7 yr old son wouldn't stop talking about them. This recipe will definitely be in my regular meal rotation to use in my wonton soup. The recipe is so versatile you could really add veggies such as carrots or mushrooms and it would be even better. Thanks for sharing this great recipe!! Read More
