We really didn't like this at all. I think it may have been the tarragon. It tasted nothing like the homemade chicken soup I grew up on. I did not try the dumplings because we didn't care for the main part of the soup and I didn't want to put any more effort into it. I did added noodles and we still threw the whole thing out. Sorry.
i only used the dumpling part of this recipe, since i got the soup part right long ago, and have always failed at the dumpling part. these were absolutely the BEST dumplings i've ever had. i made my dumplings smaller, since that's the way i liked them, and lessened the cooking time a bit and they were just heavenly, thank you so much for posting!!
