Ingredients
  

Wontons (40 pieces):

  • 2.5 tbsp soy sauce
  • 2.5 tbsp cornstarch
  • 1.5 tbsp sugar
  • 1.5  tbsp sesame oil
  • 1 tsp ginger powder
  • 300 grams ground pork
  • 1 cup garlic chives  finely chopped
  • 40 wonton wrappers
  • water to seal dumplings

Broth (10 cups)

  • 2 chicken legs with skin and bone in
  • 10 cups water

Noodle Soup (1 serving)

  • 85 grams wonton noodles or double the portion if you like a lot of noodles
  • 8 wontons
  • 1.5 cups chicken broth for homemade broth please read recipe below
  • 4 stems Yu choy or leafy greens of choice
  • 1 tbsp oyster sauce
  • ½ stalk green onions
  • ½ tsp chili oil optional
  • 1 tsp soy sauce
  • 1 tsp sesame oil

Instructions
 

Broth:

  • In a large pot filled with 10 cups of water, add your chicken legs. Boil this for at least 3 hours over a rolling simmer or medium-low heat covered. If you have an instant pot, cook this on "Slow Cook" on Normal Mode for 2 hours with the seal on.
  • Once boiled, remove the legs, skim the fat and any bits. Run it through a sieve to clear any bones. Reserve some of your wonton soup. Season with salt if needed.
  • Freeze or refrigerate the rest for later

Wontons:

  • In a mixing bowl (or if you have a food processor), combine your filling ingredients except the chives. Mix the ingredients so well that the meat becomes a paste. I would suggest using a food processor to make things quicker

  • Then to your pork paste, mix in your chives by hand. I would not suggest adding the chives to the food processor as it'll make your filling look green and you'll lose the crunch of the chives when you eat them.

  • Then on a clean working surface, lay your wonton wrapper down and wet the edges with your fingers or a brush.

  • Scoop ½ tbsp (no more) into the middle of the wonton.

  • Fold the wonton wrapper over and seal the edges tightly. It’s important to squeeze them together so they stick or they will come apart when you boil them.

  • To fold it in a fancy way, push the middle of the wonton down with a chopstick.

  • Fold both sides inward and seal the flaps together with more water.

  • To cook, boil your dumplings in hot boiling water for 5 minutes or until the dumplings float to the top and are cooked

Noodle soup:

  • Blanch your wonton noodles for 1 minute over medium high heat. Strain immediately and run under cold water. This keeps the noodles chewy. Then transfer to a bowl.
  • Blank your yu choy for 2 minutes in hot boiling water.
  • Prepare your bowl by adding your noodles, boiled dumplings, yu choy, green onions and oyster sauce. Add your soup. Enjoy with some chili oil if desired.
