Chicken Wonton Soup

Remember the fried prawn wantons??? The other alternative for the wanton parcels is to add into a chicken based soup for a soft melt-in-the mouth and easy to digest texture. For the filling its also chicken. But flavored with oyster sauce and spring onion. This soup is a complete nutritious meal for its without oil and with green veg. Perhaps you like to add some noodles???  

For broth/stock
200g chicken bones
1 large onion

Other ingredients
13 wanton skin
100g minced chicken meat
2 stalks spring onions - shredded
1 tsp oyster sauce
1tsp ginger paste
1 tsp cornflour
110g mustard leaves - washed and broken into large pieces
Some coriander leaves
Salt and pepper for taste

For broth
Simmer bones and onion with 1 liter of water to extract broth.
Strain and pour back into the pot
Season with salt and pepper.
Keep it simmering over very low heat.

For wanton
In a bowl, mix chicken,spring onion, oyster sauce, ginger, cornflour and salt. 
Add  1/2 tsp of  mixed chicken in the center of wanton skin
Dab/pat the corners of the skin with some water, after which bring all the corners together and press.
Gently drop wanton into stock..
Skim out any impurities if needed.
When wanton floats up, add mustard leaves and off the heat.   
Garnish with coriander leaves before serving.
