This recipe is from a missionary at my church who just came back from Paraguay, so it is very authentic. Times are estimates as I have yet to make this lovely sounding dish.

This was very good! I loved everything about this dish - the broth was so flavorful and the dumplings were delicious! Thanks for sharing. Made for ZWT7 for the Vivacious Violets.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Cut up the chicken in pieces. Put into a kettle with water (you may brown the chicken first if you wish). Add tomatoes and onion. Allow it to boil 30 minutes; add salt and oregano. If the chicken is tender, remove it with a little broth.
  2. Prepare the bori by making a circle with the corn flour. In the center, add cheese, egg, and grease from chicken broth. Mix until you obtain a dough. Roll the dough with your hands and make little balls. Add balls to the boiling broth.
  3. When balls float to the surface, allow it to boil for a few more minutes. Add the pieces of chicken, whole. Serve hot.
