Big, beautiful, bossy flavors ahead! Shiitake mushrooms and chicken wontons swim in a brothy flavor-filled sauce and get finished with a swirl of sesame oil and chili crisp on top. Yum!


Units Scale

Chicken Wontons with Spicy Sauce:

  • 3 tablespoons sesame oil, divided
  • 14 ounces shiitake mushrooms, sliced
  • 1 clove garlic, grated
  • one 12-ounce bag frozen wontons (I like the mini chicken cilantro ones from Trader Joe’s or Costco)
  • 12 cups chicken broth (depending on how soupy you like it)
  • 1/2 cup teriyaki sauce
  • 12 tablespoons chili crisp


  • green onions, sliced
  • sesame seeds


  1. Heat 1 tablespoon sesame oil in a large nonstick skillet over medium heat. Add mushrooms; sauté until softened and yummy. Add garlic for the last minute or two of sautéing. 
  2. Add the frozen wontons, chicken broth, and teriyaki sauce. Simmer for 5 minutes, with a lid on, until the wontons are heated through.
  3. Finish with remaining 2 tablespoons sesame oil, chili crisp, and top with sesame seeds and scallions.
