Chicken wonton soup is a perfect balance between hearty, comforting and nourishing. Made with our own chicken broth, this soup is enriched with aromatics that pack a punch.
1 jar of chicken broth

1 tablespoon togarashi
1 tablespoon sesame, toasted and ground
In a saucepan, bring the broth to a simmer. Lower the heat.
Heat the grapeseed oil in a frying pan. Place the chicken thighs in skin side down and cook for 3 minutes or until golden. Turn over and cook for a further 3 minutes or until cooked through. Remove from pan and slice each thigh into 8 pieces.
Meanwhile bring a large pot of water to the boil. Carefully drop in the dumplings and cook for 2 minutes. Drop the noodles into the same pot and cook the dumplings for a further 3 minutes. Pass through a strainer and divide the noodles and dumplings between 4 bowls.
