Chicken Cilantro Pot Sticker Veggie Soup Recipe

by DanicasDaily on November 5, 2009

I created this Chicken Cilantro Pot Sticker Veggie Soup to put an adventurous spin on traditional Chicken Noodle soup when The Husband was sick.  It is so easy to make and ready in less than 30 minutes.  Simply pick any mixture of fresh or frozen veggies, add broth and mini pot stickers.  The sesame oil adds another layer of flavor while the Teriyaki Sauce sweetens up the broth and a little Hot Sauce gives it a spicy kick!  The BEST part is this is SUPER LOW in calories and fat ~ yeah!

Chicken Cilantro Pot Sticker Veggie Soup Recipe



2 tsp sesame oil

3 carrots, peeled and sliced

2 summer squash, halved and sliced

2 c fresh sliced white mushrooms

1 garlic clove, minced

32 oz Organic Chicken Broth

3 Tbsp Annie’s Organic Teriyaki Sauce

1 tsp (dashes) Srirachi or your favorite hot sauce

1 tsp Extra Virgin Olive Oil

1 Package Trader Joe’s Mini Chicken Pot Stickers or comparable frozen Won Ton’s or Su Mei

6 c Organic Spinach

4 Scallions, sliced


1. Heat sesame oil in a large sauce pan over medium heat.  Add carrots through garlic and sauté for four minutes.  Add Teriyaki Sauce, hot sauce and chicken broth.  Bring to a boil.

2.  While the soup boils, heat the olive oil in a medium skillet and add pot stickers.  Cook for two minutes or until slightly browned and remove from heat.

3.  Add pot stickers to the soup mixture and boil one minute.  Add the spinach and cook for an additional minute.  Remove from heat and stir in scallions, reserving a small pinch to top soup boils.

Makes 4 LARGE servings with 9 potstickers each.  Each serving is 4 WW Points+!

The “Star” ingredient in tonight’s soup is Trader Joe’s Mini Chicken & Cilantro Wontons (aka Pot Stickers).


Check out the stats ~ LOVE it!  1 serving is 1 point, 2 servings is 2 points!

Remove from heat and add scallions.


Scoop into bowls and top with additional scallions.


If desired, add a little more heat ~ I heart Srirachi Hot Sauce ~ it’s AMAZING in soup.
