Chicken Wonton Soup

Yield 8 servings
Look for frozen pork, seafood, or vegetable dumplings in the freezer aisle of your grocery store, and pick up rotisserie chicken in the deli section. This soup tastes so authentic that one kid tester thought it was Chinese takeout.


  • 4 cups low-sodium chicken broth
  • 2 cups pre-shredded carrots
  • 8 frozen pork dumplings
  • 1 cup thinly shredded precooked rotisserie chicken
  • 1 tablespoon low-sodium soy sauce

How to Make It

  1. Prep time: 5 minutes
    Cooking time: about 15 minutes

    In a large pot, heat chicken broth over moderate heat until simmering. Add the carrots and cook 2 minutes. Add the dumplings, cover the pot, and cook for 5 minutes. Add chicken and soy sauce and cook another 3 minutes, or until the soup is hot, the vegetables are tender, and the dumplings are cooked through.

    How kids can help: Measure carrots; shred chicken with fingers; count out dumplings.
