Quick version of the Chinese favorite

Top Review by Shirlsaw

I was a bit disappointed with the flavor - seemed a bit bland but this was a quick and easy soup to make. I think part of my issue is I would have preferred pork in the wontons as well as a splash of sesame oil to add that unique chinese flavor. Just a note on the wonton skins - make sure you buy square ones - much easier to fill and seal. There are some slightly rectangular ones out there that are more of a challenge. Also I would increase the broth quantity as the wontons do absorb broth as they cook.
