For homemade wontons (you can easily sub frozen wontons):

1 lb. ground chicken
tsp. red pepper flakes
2 tsp. soy sauce
2 tsp. chives (thinly sliced)
tsp. sesame oil
1 tsp. rice wine vinegar
1 tsp. cornstarch
c. water
1 tsp. grated ginger
3 garlic cloves smashed and cut into small pieces
1 package square wonton wrappers (our package was 52 wraps)

For the soup (for adding 12 wontons - note can probably double if cooking all 52 wontons):

2 boxes of chicken stock (or broth)
1 tsp. sesame oil
2 tsp. grated ginger
3 garlic cloves smashed and cut into small pieces
3 tbsp. sliced green onions
cup shredded carrots

Making the wontons:
Mix wonton ingredients in a large bowl until well combined.
Lay wonton wraps onto a large cookie sheet lined with parchment paper.
Have a small bowl with water near creation station.
Place about a tsp. of wonton mix into center of wrapper. Wet the edges of the wonton with water from small bowl. Fold into a triangle and fold again each side towards middle to make envelope. Continue this process until you have used all wonton mix and wrappers.

Making the soup:
Bring all soup ingredients to a boil. Simmer for 10-15 minutes. Add wontons (as many as you will want for your meal) and bring back to a boil. Lower heat to simmer and cook wontons for about 10 minutes or until chicken is done.

Serve in bowl. Can top with additional green onions if desired.

Wontons can take a while. Once everything is ready - under 30 minutes. :)

Personal Notes:
TIPS: We make the whole package of 52 wontons at once and place the wonton filled cookie sheets into the freezer overnight. Then wontons can be relocated to a large ziplock bag. This is a great way to have wontons whenver you want. Ours usually only last 1-2 weeks before we are eating them up.

If you have extra soup left over, store for 1-3 days in the fridge and add more wontons for another easy ready meal - remember wontons sitll need to be fully cooked. Extra ingredients can be added to the soup mix to make more when repeating this meal in the next couple of days.

When we first started making this we attempted different ways to fold the wontons. Depending on how you fold, they may come apart. Don't stress - now you have chicken meatball and noodle soup.
