I am pleased to be the first review of this tasty, satisfying Asian soup. I made my own chicken stock, using a leftover grilled chicken thigh and Better Than Boullion base, lending a slight smokey flavor to the soup broth. I also added one grated carrot for added flavor and color, along with the frozen wontons. Trader Joe's frozen wontons are our favorite and cooked two minutes is perfect. I upped the Chinese five-spice to 1 tsp and 1/8 tsp cayenne pepper, personal preference only. Thank you, DeviousMuse, for a winning recipe!

This was so good but because I'm not a fan of the Chinese Five Spice Powder I left that out. Instead of salt I sprinkled in some lite soy sauce. Delish and thank you!

This soup has great flavor! I loved it. I followed the recipe plus I added a couple of chicken breasts diced & browned. My whole family really liked this, we especially liked the crunch of the water chestnuts. I will be making this regularly!
