Great recipe!!! Just as good as our favorite Chinese restaurant. This was so easy. The hardest part was finding the wonton wrappers, all I was able to find were wonton skins. But everything turned out great. Followed recipe exactly except I doubled the recipe and only used 1 1/2 TBS of sesame oil in the filling as it was so strong. I have to admit at first I really did not like the smell of the sesame oil, but I really liked the flavor it gave to the broth. Very easy recipe I will definitely make this again. Thank you so much for sharing =)
wow! This was as good or better than what we get at a restaurant! DH said he would give this many more than 5 stars if possible! I followed the recipe as posted, except we used ground chicken, and I didn't put the cabbage in the soup ( I did put it in the wontons). I also make my own broth and added sliced garlic and carrots and some minced ginger. I just made another double batch yesterday and froze a ton of wontons. I freeze them raw, and then for the next time we make it, I just drop the frozen wontons into the simmering broth until cooked. I just put them on a cookie sheet lined with a silicone liner, then pop them into a ziploc bag when frozen. LOVE LOVE LOVE this recipe! Thanks for sharing!

Zaar...Wow, what a place! I'm one of the old timers of Zaar. I can't count the number of wonderful dishes I cooked in the past few years since joining. Along the way I have had the pleasure of meeting several Zaar chefs. Talk about your fruits and nuts! lol. I have enjoyed meeting them all. Family: What's to say...I have had the same sweet husband forever (Good thing....I'd hate to have to break a new one in...=) and live close to a couple of grown children. (Maybe you've met Smoke Alarm Jr. ..her brown rolls are sooo good!) Therefore, my family gets together often to enjoy each other's company and cooking. My greatest joy is six "little to tallerthanme" kids running around calling me Grammy. They wear me out! lol For the past thirty years I have been a Special Education teacher for grades 9-12 and love it. Took some time off last year to recovery from surgery, chemotherapy and radiation for breast cancer. (Loved the radiation....I keep imagining that we are absolutely napalming the nasty cancer cells tohellandback to keep the little suckers from returning. =) My prognosis is good and now "I'm back in the saddle again". lol. Being a north country "gurl", I am happiest outside...walking, fishing, sitting in front of an outdoor fire or being on water (although in February it's a bit stiff....=0) When indoors I like to read, garden, knit, quilt and paint. During cold Maine weather I like to warm my feet on a very large ( 100 pounds of long legs and huge feet), sweet and furry golden retriever named Kerry (aka KTBRD: Kerry the big red dawg..lol) . In the summer, the dawg and I round up the grandkids, hit the local dairy bar for a Mounds Sundae that is to die for!!!=0) . Then spend a lot of long and lazy summer days at camp . All in all...Boy, Life is good! =)
