Chicken Dumpling Soup:

This is what I made out of my chicken stock, it is a bit hardy but really wonderful to the taste buds and keep you warm!

  • 1 ½ quart of stock (homemade is the best but store bought is perfect)
  • A glug or two of olive oil
  • 1 white or yellow onion diced
  • 2 garlic cloves diced
  • 2 carrot sticks diced
  • 2 celery stocks diced
  • Sprig or two of fresh thyme
  • 1 bay leaf
  • 1 12 oz. can of diced tomatoes
  • 2 cups shredded chicken (from making stock?) if you don’t have some see below *
  • Dumplings (see below)
  • Salt and pepper as needed

In your Dutch oven or stock pot, add oil and onions, cook a minute or two, then add garlic, cook until onions are translucent.

* if you don’t have shredded chicken from making stock cube up some roasted chicken from the store or use 2 boneless /skinless chicken breasts (or 3 boneless /skinless thighs ) cubed up and add the chicken right after the onions have softened.  Once the chicken is cooked through add the carrots and celery.

Add the carrots and celery and cook until slightly softened, 10 minutes

Add stock , tomatoes, bay leaf, thyme, chicken and salt and pepper, 30 minutes or until carrots are mostly soft.

Add dumplings, makes them the size of a tsp. measuring spoon and cook for ten or more minutes, until the dumplings are cooked through and don’t have a floury taste, fish out thyme sprig and bay leaf, garnish with fresh parsley if you have some and serve.

For the dumplings:

1 ½ cup all purpose flour

¼ tsp salt

2 egges

In a mixing bowl, mix dry ingredients together, make a hole in middle of mixture, add the eggs into the hole and mix flour into the eggs by hand until all the flour is incorporated and the flour is slightly sticky.  Set aside if not ready to use.

Notes: this is how my mom, dad and grandma made as they called them, baby dumplings.  I think I am going to play around with them and see how I like it if I add baking powder and other spices in the mixture (saw a few recipes that used milk also) I want to make the perfect dumplings.
