    Grease's Note:

    This is a more luxurious version of an old standby which is almost a meal in itself. From "Chinese, the essence of Asian cooking". The wontons can be a little fussy to make so you might want to consider doing them the day before. (If that's the case, stop at the end of step two.) The preparation time is mostly for the wontons which are really worth the effort. The cooking time is for the soup. Leftovers, if there are any, seem to survive well in the fridge and are easily heated in the nuke for an additional treat.

    The Wontons

    The Soup

    • 3 3/4 cups chicken broth (or two 15 oz. cans commercial product)
    • 1/4 cup cucumber, peeled and diced
    • salt & freshly ground black pepper
    • 1 scallion, cut into thin strips, for garnish
    • 4 sprigs fresh cilantro, for garnish
    • 1 tomato, scalded, peeled, seeded and diced for garnish

    Directions:

    1. 1
      Place the chicken breast, 3/4 of the shrimp, the ginger and scallions in a food processor and process for 2-3 minutes. Add the egg, oyster sauce (if using), and seasoning and process briefly. Set aside.
    2. 2
      Place 8 wonton wrappers at a time on a surface in diamond fashion with a point towards you; moisten two adjoining edges with the cornstarch paste and place a rounded 1/2 teaspoon of the chicken/shrimp mixture in the center of each. Fold the dry edges over and pinch to seal. Simmer in salted boiling water for 4 minutes. Continue stuffing wrappers until chicken/shrimp mixture is gone.
    3. 3
      At this point, the wontons can be stored in the fridge overnight after they cool).
    4. 4
      Bring the chicken broth to a boil, add the remaining whole shrimp and the cucumber and simmer for 3-4 minutes to warm through. Adjust seasoning with salt and pepper. Add wontons to warm through. Serve hot in bowls and garnish with scallion, cilantro and diced tomatoes.
