  • Author: Michelle

  • Yield: 3 servings 1x
  • Diet: Gluten Free


Units Scale

For the wontons

  • 2 baby bok choy leaves
  • 3 green onions
  • 1 thumb ginger, grated
  • 1 clove garlic, minced
  • 3/4 lb ground chicken
  • Salt and pepper
  • 1 tbsp coconut aminos
  • 1 tbsp avocado oil
  • 8 sheets of rice paper

For the broth

  • 5 cups chicken broth
  • 2 tbsp coconut aminos
  • 1 tbsp ricee wine vinegar
  • 1 large thumb ginger, grated
  • Salt and pepper
  • 1 head baby bok choy, chopped
  • 2 tbsp green onion, chopped


  1. To prep the vegetables, chop the thick white ends off of the baby bok choy leaves, leaving only the thin green leaves. Set the white ends aside to use in the broth. Chop the leaves into thin strips. Chop the green onion.
  2. Make the meatballs by combining the ground chicken, bok choy, green onion, ginger, garlic, salt, pepper, coconut aminos, and avocado oil.
  3. Scoop into small meatballs, wetting your hands to roll the meatball into 1″ circles. You should have about 15 meatballs. Set aside on a plate and allow to chill in the fridge.
  4. Using a large stock pot, combine the broth, rice wine, coconut aminos, ginger, salt and pepper. Stir and bring to a low boil.
  5. Carefully add the meatballs to the broth and boil until the meatballs float and read an internal temperature of 165 F. Remove the meatballs and set aside.
  6. Bring the broth to a very low simmer and add the bok choy leaves. Stir to combine and allow to wilt.
  7. While the soup simmers, prepare a station for rolling the meatballs into the rice paper. Using kitchen scissors, cut the rice paper in half. Working with one piece at a time, dip the rice paper into water to soften for about 5 seconds. Set on a clean plate and place the meatball in the center. Fold in the sides and continue to roll until the meatball is fully rolled in the wrapper. Set aside and repeat for all of the meatballs.
  8. Turn the heat off of the soup and add the dumplings. Serve immediately topped with additional green onions.

It would be a little different, but you can actually skip the rice paper altogether and just eat the soup with the wonton filling as meatballs. You’ll also skip the pepper and Shaoxing wine and swap apple cider vinegar instead. All of the flavors will still be there, and the soup will now be AIP.
