    Margo59's Note:

    This came from a Taste of Home recipe collection from several years ago. It is requested by my family several time a year. Great during cold weather and when you are feeling under the weather. Takes a little time to prepare, but well worth it.

    1. 1
      Place chicken, water, bouillon cubes, peppercorns and cloves in an 8 quart Dutch oven or soup kettle.
    2. 2
      Cover and bring to boil; skim fat.
    3. 3
      Reduce heat; cover and simmer for 1-1/2 hours or chicken is tender.
    4. 4
      Strain broth and return to kettle.
    5. 5
      When chicken is cool to touch; debone and cut into bite sized chunks.
    6. 6
      Return chicken to kettle and add cans of soup, vegetables and seasonings; bring to boil.
    7. 7
      Reduce heat; cover and simmer for 1 hour.
    8. 8
      Uncover and increase heat to a gentle boil.
    9. 9
      Remove bay leaf.
    10. 10
      For dumplings, combine dry ingredients in a medium bowl.
    11. 11
      Stir in egg, butter and enough milk to make a moist stiff batter.
    12. 12
      Drop by teaspoonfuls into soup.
    13. 13
      Cover and cook (don't peek) for 18-20 minutes.
    14. 14
      Sprinkle with parsley if desired.
    15. 15
      NOTE: It states in the recipe 10-12 servings, I serve bigger bowls, so it probably serves 6-8.
    16. 16
      I also use a little less seasoned salt due to the salt content of both cans of soup.

      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!
