Won Ton Soup

Still in the mood for Chinese food so I made  a version of Won Ton Soup. I had some leftover won ton wrappers so I filled them with chicken. Simmered them in chicken stock and added spinach at the last minute. Not a traditional Won Ton Soup, but I had to work with what I had. It tasted good so that is what matters in the end.

Won Ton Soup

24 Won ton wrappers

1 c. cooked chicken

1/4 c. minced celery

1 t. soy sauce

1 t. sesame oil

4 c. chicken stock

4 c. fresh spinach

Combine chicken with the celery, soy sauce and sesame oil. Place 1 teaspoon of the chicken mixture in the center of a won ton wrapper. Moisten edges and fold in half to form a triangle. Press edges to seal. Repeat with remaining filling and wrappers. Heat stock and add the wrappers and spinach and cook until heat through and spinach is cooked, about 5 minutes. Serves 2-3.
