Make

  1. Heat a Dutch oven over medium-high heat. Add first part of oil and then chicken to heated oil. Sear chicken on both sides until golden brown (but not cooked through), ~2 minutes per side.

  2. Move chicken to the sides of the pan, leaving some space in the center. Add second part of oil to the center of the pan. Add carrots and onions to heated oil. Saute chicken and vegetables, scraping up any brown bits on the bottom of the pan, until vegetables are starting to soften, 2 to 3 minutes. Add ginger and garlic and a pinch of salt and cook for 1 minute more.

  3. Add stock, aminos and fish sauce. Bring to a low simmer and simmer for 15 minutes until chicken is cooked through.

  4. Remove chicken from soup and shred or dice.

  5. Return chicken to pot with zucchini and coleslaw mix. Simmer until zucchini is tender, ~5 minutes more. Season soup with some salt.

  6. Divide sliced wonton wrappers between serving bowls. Ladle soup over top. Finish with lime juice and cilantro leaves. Enjoy!

Very good. I liked being able to cook the chicken pieces whole and then shred them as I hate to cut up chicken. Used orzo also because leftover wonton wrappers always go to waste at my house.

Used orzo instead if the wonton wrappers and a rainbow slaw. The soup was bright, fresh tasting and delicious.

this was a delicious soup. Can't say I tasted much miso flavor and I would use more next time. Overall, very delicious classic soup.

Used orzo pasta because I had leftover from a previous meal. Excellent homemade soup and comes together quick and easy.
