Chicken Wonton Soup

If it's true that chicken soup is good for the soul, than this chicken wonton soup takes it to a whole new level.  Little packages of goodness with moist chicken flavored with ginger, soy sauce and some sesame oil.  They are gently simmered in flavorful broth for a dish that is equal parts light and completely satisfying.  Store-bought wonton wrappers make this easy to put together -- especially if you get your kiddos to help!
