About

Recipe #3 in our Chinese Lunar New Year Celebration series . This is a great way to use one recipe for two dishes. If you are making the Chicken Shumai dimsum , you can divide the recipe in half and use the rest for this soup. You can use it either with the wonton wrapper or without, shaping the filling into 2 inch balls and adding to the soup.
