  • 1 tablespoon minced garlic
  • 24 wonton wrappers
  • Soup:
  • 1 skinless chicken breast, sliced into 1/4-inch strips
  • 1 tablespoon minced garlic
  • 1 tablespoon vegetable oil
  • 4 (14-ounce) cans chicken stock
  • 2 tablespoons light soy sauce
  • 1 tablespoon sesame oil
  • 2/3 cup Chinese barbecued pork, thinly sliced

Directions
Wontons:

Combine the first 5 ingredients in large bowl and mix together thoroughly. Place 1/2 teaspoon of filling in the center of each wonton wrapper. Moisten the sides of wrapper with water and then fold diagonally in half to form a triangle. Moisten the edges of the triangle and bring both points of the triangle base towards the center to form a wonton shape. Set aside.

Soup:

In a soup pot, saute the chicken strips and minced garlic in the vegetable oil. Add the chicken stock, soy sauce, sesame oil, and barbecue pork. Simmer for 15 minutes on medium heat. Add the dumplings and cook for another 10 minutes. Drain the bamboo shoots and water chestnuts; add to soup pot. Add the frozen vegetables and simmer for another 10 minutes.

eeewk...Please don't call it a wonton soup. It's not even close. You can't change up almost all of the ingredients and all it a wonton soup. Wonton's filling has to be roughly chopped and lightly seasoned pork and SHRIMP. Without shrimps, it's not wontons. BBQ pork and chicken breast and frozen veggie? U kidding me! item not reviewed by moderator and published
I love this recipe and have made it several times....with a few editions. First, the recipe makes more wontons than it says it does so I add extra chicken stock. Second, simmering the wontons for the total 20 minutes over cooks them and makes them fall apart so I always add them WITH the frozen vegetables. And lastly, whatever you do DON'T cover the pot after you've added the wontons. Steam builds up inside them and makes them come apart. item not reviewed by moderator and published
Yuck. I'd avoid this at all costs. item not reviewed by moderator and published
I think this is a great recipe . I used any leftover small portion of leftver meat..But instead of chicken broth i use water and soup base.( has alot more flavor) Family Loved it ! item not reviewed by moderator and published
Imagine a bunch of pasty, undercooked dough floating in store-bought chicken broth (not stock). There you have it. This is REALLY, REALLY, terrible! item not reviewed by moderator and published
THESE WEREN'T EVEN REMOTELY CLOSE TO WONTONS. MASSLESS WALMART DOUGH IN A TUB OF SWANSON'S CHICKEN BROTH. YUMM DELISH. item not reviewed by moderator and published
Where shall I begin? Too salty, otherwise terribly bland. Nothing like authentic wonton soup, which I've enjoyed in the Chinatown's of Toronto, San Francisco, Chicago, and New York City. It looked like something you might see in a backed up garbage disposal and tasted about the same. Thankfully I didn't serve this to guests, so there were no witnesses to this atrocity! item not reviewed by moderator and published

Hey Sandra Thought I have not had the pleasure ot trying any of your recipes, I think they are greet, U exspecilly like the money saving ones. I can[t wait to try all of them now that i have move i will be getting strated real soon, and for those who don't have nothing nice to say about yor receipes is because they can't cook. I was nnce told if you don't have nothing nice to say don't say anything at all maybe they should try that recipes. Sandra keep on cooking janet Reading PA item not reviewed by moderator and published
I like wonton soup, but have never had it with all this other stuff in it. Wonton soup is basically chicken stock with green onions and wontons in it. Add a dash of sesame oil and/or soy sauce and you are done. If you want to get fancy, throw in some snow peas. This one is over worked, over thought, and just not authentic. item not reviewed by moderator and published
I have never tried any of her recipes, all I have to do is look at them and know something just isn't right. Come on! Seriously???? Onion mix and frozen veggies? RED FLAG right there, people. I guess that's why it's called semi-home cooking, ugh, disgusting. If you have tried more than one of here recipes then you have issues and have obviously deprived yourself of good food. I just got tired of searching through recipes and running into her mediocre and horrible reviews, it isn't right. I hope enough bad reviews will get her booted off the food network, too many great chefs and cooks out there. Rant over. item not reviewed by moderator and published
I was just better off ordering wonton soup from my local Chinese restaurant. This recipe is not even remotely close to having any Asian flair. I tried this once, and I will never try any of her recipes again. I can't believe this woman has her own show. Her recipes are better off in the Quick Fix suggestions column in Family Circle or Woman's Day. I would love to see Sandra's cooking skills to the test by having a cook-off between her and Ina or Giada. item not reviewed by moderator and published
I cook and bake a lot and I do it well. I followed the recipe to the "T" and it tasted Salty, Oily, Mushy, and the wontons sucked up all the broth:-/ all that hard work for nothing. As a joke my husband told me it made him want to go on Dialysis. Had to throw the whole pot away. Thank goodness it's cheap and I didn't waste a chicken breast. No offense to the chef. The Chinese Sausage Egg Fried Rice and Eggrolls I made were awesome! item not reviewed by moderator and published
Definitely Delish...a little work, perhaps...but well worth it in the long run. (Will do it again) item not reviewed by moderator and published
I found this recipe easy and delicious. I didn't have the Asian barbecued pork and used 1/2 pound ground pork instead. I browned it and drained it before moving on with the rest of the recipe and it was very good. item not reviewed by moderator and published
It was a bit of work stuffing the wontons but was worth it. I fried half of the batch and ate it with some sweet and sour dipping sauce which came out better than the wonton soup! item not reviewed by moderator and published
The flavor was great, but the wontons were quite a bit of work, and they didn't hold up well. Next time I will use frozen wontons. item not reviewed by moderator and published
I read the other reviews and some said this was a bit too salty. I used 2 cans regular broth along with 2 cans of low sodium broth in hopes to cut salt content. I also added some chopped ginger to the wonton fillings. I had some left over filling so I made little mini meatballs and sauted them. I used pork instead of chicken too. I didnt think it was too salty and was simple and fantastic. Will definatly make this again! Thanks Sandra! item not reviewed by moderator and published
with this recipe. It was greaaatt!!! Delish & sooo moist! Using onion soup mix was a clever idea. It made the meat so flavorfull item not reviewed by moderator and published
Sooooo yucky! Way too much sesame oil; too much onion soup in meat mixture. Too many ingredients going on in this soup! Expensive to make after buying all that stuff for a wonton soup. You could buy better tasting take out for less money. What an extreme disappointment all the way around.... item not reviewed by moderator and published
I never liked Oriental food until I started making Sandra's recipes. I used to hate eating in Oriental Restaurants because you never quite knew what you were eating or how it was made. And all those sauces just confused me. But I watched her make these great recipes on her show and they really didn't look anything like what I was served in the Oriental Restaurant so I decided to try them myself. And I am so gald I did! None of Sandra's recipes taste anything like the food at the Oriental Restaurant!! Plus, I know what is in them and they don't have complicated sauces. THANKS SANDRA LEE!! item not reviewed by moderator and published
Plus its a lot easier and faster. item not reviewed by moderator and published
I am not sure what this is, but it doesn't taste anything like wonton soup from a Chinese place. It required a lot of ingredients and work making the wontons (which were a bit raw and gross) and ended up not being very good. item not reviewed by moderator and published
The wontons were particularly nauseating. item not reviewed by moderator and published
Take-out is better and faster. item not reviewed by moderator and published
It's nothing at all like chinese restaurant wonton soup. Which is ok. Or would be ok if it tasted good. But this soup totally misses the mark. The broth tasted funny and there was way too much going on in the soup. Too many mismatched ingredients. Frankly, I'd rather just open a can of Campbells and be done with it than bother with this overcomplicated disappointing recipe again. item not reviewed by moderator and published
I never thought theirs was that great until I tried this recipe. Now I'll order take-out all the time! item not reviewed by moderator and published
A bunch of stuff floating in canned broth. A VERY BAD rendition of wonton soup, I am afraid. item not reviewed by moderator and published
The one with premade wontons was just as good and much easier. Whoever suggested it should have his own Semi-Homemade show! :) item not reviewed by moderator and published
"semi-homemade" recipes are sometimes a little time consuming. Which is fine with me if they are this good. I tried this with pre made won tons and this recipe's version. They were both good but I really liked the filling in the recipe's version better, so it will be worth it for me to make them this way next time!! item not reviewed by moderator and published
This soup is delish! It is much better than won ton soup usually is when you buy it premade. To us anyway, this had much more flavor. We loved the wontons the best. item not reviewed by moderator and published
This is WAY too much work for semi-homemade. I agree with Phil: heat up some chicken stock and add pre-made wontons. MUCH easier and taste is the same. item not reviewed by moderator and published
I like Wonton Soup. Rather than going to the trouble of making the Wontons, I buy them already made and packaged at an Asian market. They are sometimes called Sheperds Purses. They come with various fillings ( Shrimp, spinach, etc.) They come 40 in a package in the freezer section, for about $ 2.75 . I just make some instant chicken broth and toss in about 4 or 5 wontons for each serving. I realize that a lot of viewers do not have access to Asian markets like I do here in the Bay Area of California. item not reviewed by moderator and published
This is a great and very easy soup that my family loves. I've made it twice and will make it again this weekend. item not reviewed by moderator and published
#1. The wontons were too bland. #2. The onion soup mix made the broth taste like onion dip. #3 There are way too many ingredients for the amount of liquid. Vegetables, chicken, pork, etc. This could have been a nice recipe if it had been more carefully thought out. As is, it's a mess. item not reviewed by moderator and published
I like it better than buying it. I will be making this so much! Thanks! item not reviewed by moderator and published
This soup is great. The won ton filling is wonderful! item not reviewed by moderator and published

But not that terrible. I did think there were too many ingredients in it. item not reviewed by moderator and published
Bold flavors, not like I get at the Chinese place I go to. Maybe I need to change Chinese places. This doesn't taste exactly like take out Chinese soup, but that's what I like about it. It has much more flavor. I'm glad everyone has different tastes, otherwise life would be boring! I ordered War Wonton soup the other night, but it tasted watered down compared to this. item not reviewed by moderator and published
We like the Chinese style soup much better than this recipe. Will be going back to that. Sorry item not reviewed by moderator and published

This is so much better than take out soup at the Chinese restaurant! It is a hearty, flavorful soup and it is fun to make the won tons. Thank you Sandra!! item not reviewed by moderator and published
If your making the trip to the chinese restaurant anyway, just buy the soup. item not reviewed by moderator and published
