Spiced Chicken Broth With Chicken Wontons

Spiced Chicken Broth With Chicken Wontons

Recipe by Farm to Fork


  • 1L white chicken broth or chicken stock (See Andys White Chicken Broth recipe)

Spice mix for broth

  • 15g fresh ginger
  • 15g coriander roots and stems
  • 15g fresh garlic
  • 180g oyster sauce
  • 60g soy sauce
  • 40g fish sauce
  • 100g honey
  • 20g sesame oil
  • 15g ground cumin
  • 15g ground coriander
  • 5g smoked paprika

Chicken wontons

  • 25 wonton wrappers
  • 300g chicken mince
  • 1 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil
  • 1 red onion, finely diced
  • 3 garlic cloves, finely diced
  • 1 thumb sized piece of ginger, finely diced
  • Roots and stems from 1 coriander bunch, finely chopped
  • 15ml sesame oil
  • 30ml soy sauce

To serve

  • Juice of 3 limes
  • 1 bunch coriander, washed and roughly chopped
  • 1 bunch of Thai basil, leaves picked and washed
  • 1 long red chilli, finely sliced
  • 1/2 red onion, finely sliced


  1. Place the ginger, garlic and coriander into a blender and blend until smooth. You may have to add a touch of water to get it going.
  2. Once the blended up nice and fine add all of the rest ingredients for the spice mix together in a mixing bowl.
  3. For the chicken wontons start by seating of the onion, garlic, ginger and coriander over a medium to low heat for 5 minutes. Cool this mixture and then gently fold it through the chicken mince. Season the chicken mince with the soy and sesame oil and a touch of salt.
  4. Place a small nugget of the chicken mince in the middle the wonton. Paint the edge of the wonton with a small amount of water and then fold the wonton over to seal it. Repeat until you have no more mince. These will freeze well if you want to make lots.
  5. Heat up the chicken stock in a large pot so that it's simmering. Season the stock with the spice mix to taste. Once you've got the right amount of saltiness from the spice mix, squeeze in the limes.
  6. Once the broth is simmering again, drop in the wontons. Cook the wontons until they start to float - that's when you know they’re done.
  7. Divide the wontons and the broth into your serving bowls and then top with a small garnish of the coriander, Thai basil, chilli and red onion.

For best results, we recommend using a RACO Reliance saucepan.
