My husband's comment: "This is fantastic!" I made the recipe as directed with all ingredients listed and following recipe instructions, other than adding a little more chicken broth to cut the spiciness a bit. It was delicious: spicy and flavorful. It was a little too spicy for my taste and so I would cut that back a little next time and offer extra chili garlic sauce on the side to those who want the extra kick. I had the same issue that a couple of reviewers had: noodles that clumped together into big chunks. Next time I may try briefly toasting the strips spread out on a cookie sheet in a moderate temp. oven and then stirring them in. Crispy wonton strips sound better to me. For those who could not locate chili garlic sauce: I had to search in the Asian food section in my supermarket. The kind I bought looked like and had the texture of a pico de gallo sauce. Bottom line, my husband is thrilled to have leftovers if they taste as good as this soup! :)

It had a great taste. The noodles clumped Together even though I Dropped small A few at a time. I cut back on the noodles. Also when I want to reheat it turned into a thick paste.

Outstanding soup! Just loved it! Couldn’t find chilli garlic sauce, so used 2 tbs Hot Chilli Sauce and 2 heaped tsps of minced garlic. Didn't use mushrooms as I don't like them. The flavour was fantastic! Didn’t use the wonton wrappers for the noodles; used vermicelli noodles instead. Added capsicum and fresh chilli because I like lots of vegies. This could now be my favourite soup. I actually cooked this in the slow cooker - just put the chicken breasts in and then shredded them when they were cooked. I love tasty and flavoursome soups and this one exceeded my expectations! Thanks for an amazing soup and a new favourite too! 10/10.

Very good, but way to hot for us. Didn't have "chili sauce" so used Sambal Oelek. I don't know it to be that much hotter than "chili sauce" when using in cooking. Will make again and try using like a Frank's RedHot SWEET chili sauce or maybe just less "chili sauce". Stayed tuned for update.

This soup was fabulous and a HUGE hit with my whole family. Two of us are lightweights when it comes to heat, so I only used 1T. of the chili garlic sauce which was perfect for us. The others added a spoonful to their bowls to kick up the heat. I also only used 8 oz. of wonton wrappers. After reading other reviews, I added them a little at a time, stirring as I dropped them in. No problems with sticking and I didn't find them to be soggy at all - just like cooked pasta. This one definitely makes it into our "keeper file".

Great flavor and easy enough to make. The wonton wrappers do get soggy. For an easy fix either buy fried wonton strips or fry the wrappers and make your own. I served this soup and kept the wontons on the side and let everyone add their own. This way the wonton strips kept their integrity and added the extra crunch texture everyone seemed to love. The author is absolutely right - DO NOT skip the celery leaves!

The wonton wrappers get very soggy, I substituted tofu for the wrappers. Great Flavor!

My husband and I enjoyed this flavorful dish. The only thing I might change next time would be to cut down slightly on the amount of teriyaki sauce, as the flavor was very prominent. As others recommended, I too recommend adding the wonton strips in batches, as they inevitably clump a bit.
