Chicken Soup easy Prawn Wontons and masterstock

Chicken wonton soup

  I have found a soup that Skater likes. Yes it’s a wonton soup with vegetables . ( Maybe he doesn’t know it’s soup).  He left the Shiitake Mushrooms and the shallots but there was a generally good reception. Would you like to give this one a go?

Chicken Wonton soup

I made the long version of this by making a Masterstock and cooking a whole chicken in it but you could flavour a pre- made stock and buy a cooked chicken . This is to cut the preparation time….and that’s up to you. You should know however that the whole chicken cooked in Masterstock is very delicious and you will have some left over for snacks/lunches/dinner tomorrow.
