雲吞雞鍋 Wonton Chicken Soup
You will be pleasantly surprised this body-warming soup is how easy to make. A dish with high CP ratio!
This time we had no mood to wrap our own wontons so we just bought them from wet market. It’s very yummy
Main ingredients include half a chicken, wontons, 300g of Shanghai white and sugar-free soy milk
First step is to heat the chicken in a pot of cold water. When boiled, take the chicken out and rinse it
Start to cook the chicken. Pour chicken broth and water ( in 1:1 ratio) until the chicken is covered
Add some Jinhua ham into the pot. Cover the lid, cook it in medium heat until boil. Then switch to low heat for half an hour. Flameout, simmer for another half an hour
On the other hand, boil the wontons and the Shanghai white in another pot
Boil them separately can prevent unpleasant soda water/ astringent flavour from mixing with the soup
When the chicken is done, add soy milk to give the soup milky color (we added 100ml). Then put in the cooked vegetable
Put in the wontons, taste and add salt if needed. Done!
