It dropped down to 10 degrees here last night. I wanted to make something hot to give the husband when he came in. Plus I haven’t been feeling well for several days. I knew soup would be perfect. But, I didn’t have the right things in the house or available to use in order to make most soups. So, I found myself standing there staring into the freezer, wondering what I could do. I often scold certain people in the house about this, and yet there I was doing it too. While standing there I happened to glance away and noticed a Chinese takeout menu. That’s when it hit me – wonton soup would be just what the doctor ordered. I’ve never made wonton soup before, not from scratch or anything. But I felt that the box of frozen chicken potstickers on my freezer door were a pretty good substitute for a wonton. And so I cooked it up, and made Potsticker Soup. The whole thing took under ten minutes. And best of all, it tasted quite a bit like real wonton soup. Here’s how to make it.
- 1x 20 oz box chicken potstickers (I used Crazy Cuisine brand)
- 10x regular chicken boullion cubes (I actually use 5x of the BJ’s soft boullion cubes, which call for 2 cups of water per cube)
- 10 cups water
Add the chicken boullion cubes and water to a large pot.
Bring the water to a boil.
Add the potstickers to the water. (If you have a little bit of scallions, toss them in too. I didn’t have any.)
Boil for approximately 3-4 minutes, until they’re tender.
Remove from heat, serve and enjoy!
So quick and easy, and so much like wonton soup!
