Doesn’t seem like time is going fast? I can’t get over that we are already into February. I seem to get up, go to work, come home, make dinner, go to bed. Sheesh, where does the time go? To give myself a little more time in the evening to do things I like, such as shopping, spending time with my dogs and Husband, and baking I came up with a really, super quick, three ingredient dinner. After all, as much as I love to cook, some nights I just don’t feel like cooking. So I have the worlds fastest dinner that is tasty and family approved. Let me share with you my Chicken Potsticker Soup.
If you like WonTon soup, I think you will really enjoy Potsticker Soup. It’s filling, low-calorie, easy to make and the noodles are just perfect! I made this many years ago and when shopping at Trader Joe’s, I saw Chicken Potstickers and thought I really need to make that soup again. It’s used to be a family favorite and I bet it still will be today! To make the meal more filling then just soup, I served it with a grilled cheese sandwich for the Hubby and a side salad for me.
I had leftovers so I brought a bowl in for me and a bowl for my friend Michelle. Michelle told me she really enjoyed it and ate it all up. So it is perfect the next day too! You can also make this soup vegetarian by using vegetable broth and vegetable potstickers. Actually you can use any kind of potstickers you like, such as beef or shrimp. I think this soup would really please just about anyone and it only takes 10 minutes to make. You know it’s done when the potstickers float to the top!

I really love a quick meal like this and I love that it tastes just as good the next day. I was a little worried that the noodles would be to soggy, but they weren’t. Yah!!
Well my Friends, I am off!
Have a super great day!
