Chicken and Dumpling Soup

READY IN: 1hr 30mins
Recipe by Peprich

This is a favorite comfort food for our family on a cold night. Instead of chicken broth, I use water plus 3 T. Tone's Chicken Base available at Sam's Club.

WOW! This soup was pretty simple to prepare. I've never made dumplings before, so I was a little nervous... but at 20 minutes they looked perfect. This soup was even good the next day! I only made it because my husband has been wanting me to find a Chicken and dumpling recipe... and I served it to him and my aunt's family of five... even her 11 year old who has a list of about 8 meals he will eat (horribly picky!!!) asked for seconds. She had to have the recipe as well. A new favorite soup! Thanks for sharing!!! Kudos to the cook.
