Spicy Wonton Chicken Soup

"Me and my lil immune system fared well all winter long and I thought I was gonna skate by without getting sick, but alas, I caught a not so beautiful cold. The only thing I wanted was chicken soup and definitely not out of a can. But I also had no energy to really REALLY make myself soup so I cheated... and I WON! This recipe is insanely good, fast and easy because I use a rotisserie chicken and wonton wrappers as my noodles. It’s so soothing and I truly believe in the magic of chicken soup when the bug comes creepin’. However, now that I’m all better, I want this soup again and again! #MakeItBeautiful"
