Great soup! The dumplings got a bit gummy, but the soup itself was great! Used corn instead of celery and served over egg noodles, but followed the recipe otherwise.

I used your recipe and tweaked it a bit. Omitted the cloves and potatoes and used Bisquick dumplings instead of making homemade. I also sprinkle seasonings on my dumplings while they are still raw. Besides that it's the recipe as written. I love the combination of the broth and creamed soups! That's a great idea! Thanks!

This had good flavor, balanced by how easy it was. I did actually chunk and brown the meat, rather than just boiling it. Also, I added probably a half cup of pepper, because I like my sauce to be very bold. Overall, it turned out well, and I liked all the veggies in it!

love this recipe. Thick, creamy. Added corn. It turned out a little salty. I think I would hold back on the salt. I used an extra bouillon, maybe that was part of it. OMG - will be making this again. Warm, hearty, YUM.

This was great!! I didn't use the bullion cubes and just salted the water about 2-3 tsp. and. it was perfect. To make things go faster I used 3 pounds of chicken tenderloins and it cooked much quicker. I added more veggies and I used whole wheat flour (sifted) for the dumplings. Great flavor all around! I will definitely make this again. Thanks for posting!!

Excellent! The canned soup concerned me somewhat, but it was wonderful. I didn't have the cloves, but it was very flavorful without it. I also cut the season salt in half. My teaspoon full dumplings were huge, so next time I will half the size of those. Very good, thank you for a tasty soup on a chilly day.

I'm not a huge clove fan so I left those out and it was still really great. To speed up the cooking time I also used a steamer in the pot where I cooked the chicken and steamed the vegetables above the cooking chicken so that when the chicken was done I could just cut it up and dump the vegetables and dumplings in all at once. This reduced the cooking time down by over an hour.

I made turkey dumpling soup with Thansgiving leftovers. Very good except that the dumplings were kind of boring...maybe they just needs some herbs or salt added to them? I don't know, I never made dumpling before!

I recently made this soup for a Baby Shower I was hosting. I doubled the recipe and everyone went nuts for it! I expected enough left overs to freeze, but it was such a hit there was nothing left! It was fabulous and EASY. I also made the chicken a few days in advance and froze it. Will definately be making this regularly!
