Chicken & Kale Wonton Soup

Chicken & Kale Wonton Soup

Chicken & Kale Wonton Soup

Well if you live in Canada then you woke up to the same mess that I did  this morning. When I saw the near foot of snow and felt how cold it was outside I knew My Chicken & Kale Wonton Soup would be the perfect meal to suite the weather outside. I have recently acquired a love for soup, its fast and easy to make and its very hearty depending on what you put into it and its another comfort meal that the family can enjoy. Another reason why I have been loving soup is that you can make a great soup on a small budget if you need to. I always associated soups with being in cans, growing up my mom was always against eating canned soup because she felt that it had too much salt or other additives that were not good for us. In a way having my own children I have raised them the same way to the point that even when I don’t feel like cooking and I want to crack open a can of soup they won’t even eat it.

Back to making Wonton soup, for some the Wontons are a bit difficult to make and they do take a little bit of time to prepare so if you are in a hurry,  you also have the option to buy them premade and frozen. You can pretty much add anything you want to Wonton soup in terms of fillings, I chose chicken because we don’t eat pork and not all of the kids eat Shrimp. You’ve got to try this recipe, I promise you won’t be disappointed.
