This was great! So simple, with ingredients I usually have on hand. I may try to add an onion next time as well.
I liked this a lot, mine was more like chicken and dumpling than soup which was a good thing for DH. This is a heavy dumpling, which we prefer, only I cooked it longer than stated. I followed the directions and the flavor was wonderful! A previous review stated these dumpling were dinky, they are whatever size you cut them! True southern dumplings are not light and fluffy but that is a matter of preference. We enjoyed this very much, great flavor! I also thought the chicken to dumpling ratio was right on. Thanks for posting!
I use heavy cream instead of half and half and instead of these dinky little dumplings I use the fluffy dumpling recipe on the bisquick box. perfect!
I liked this soup very much - not so much the dumplings. I will go back to my use of canned refrigerated biscuits - I cut them in pieces and place on the top of the soup - spoon some of soup broth on top. I cover the pan with lid and simmer for 10 - 12 minutes (or until fully cooked). Very easy and nice.
Easy and delicious. This was my first attempt at dumplings and they turned out great!
The chicken and soup portion was very good but I didn't care too much for the dumplings.
Very good soup. My dh and I both enjoyed it. Will definitely make it again. Thanks for the recipe.
Really good soup. Even my husband who doesn't like soups much for a meal, really liked it. Very flavorful and easy to make. Will use this recipe again. Made for PAC '11. Thanks, Mommie!
Required some modification. First of all, unless you have pre-chopped vegetables and chicken, and are a whiz at mixing up dumplings, the prep time and cook time seem inaccurate. The dumplings are VERY dense - which is a shame, as I prefer fluffier dumplings. <br/><br/>I used bouillon and water instead of boxed or canned broth, and so I cut down on celery salt in order to prevent the saltpocalypse. Was still a bit saltier than I'd prefer - maybe use 1/4 tsp celery salt instead when making with bouillon. I also used powdered garlic (maybe 1/4 tsp? didn't measure) and added thyme and rosemary (again, didn't measure). I also skipped the celery, because my husband hates it. <br/><br/>I only used one chicken breast, which was almost a pound of meat. Three chicken breasts would be really excessive. I wish the recipe listed chicken breast by weight instead of by count. Also I think the recipe never actually tells you to add the bay leaves, although I'm sure we all understand that they go in with the stock at the beginning. <br/><br/>Had to cook for a bit to get the carrots nice and tender. Since I didn't care of the dumplings, when it came time to pack up the leftovers I removed the dumplings and added a small diced potato and some peas. <br/><br/>After modification, the sauce is quite delicious, if thin. Would be good with a nice rice pilaf or some biscuits.
This soup is delicious. The seasonings are perfect! I made the dumpling recipe on the Bisquick box, but rolled it out to about 1/4-inch and cut it into squares. Worked great. Will definitely make this again.
