Directions

Bring chicken stock to a rolling boil, then add all the ingredients.
Cook until chicken and shrimp are cooked through, about 10 minutes.

For homemade wontons: In a bowl, mix the chopped pork and ground shrimp with brown sugar, rice wine or sherry, soy sauce, scallions and chopped ginger.
Blend well and set aside for 25-30 minutes for the flavors to blend.

Place 1 tspn of the filling in the center of each wonton wrapper.

Wet the edges of each wonton with a little water and press them together with your fingers to seal, then fold each wonton over.

To cook, add wontons to boiling chicken stock and cook for 4-5 minutes.

Transfer to individual soup bowls and serve.

Garnish with thinly sliced green onions.
