- 1⁄2 cup spanish piquillo peppers or 1⁄2 cup roasted red pepper, cut into thin 2-inch long pieces
- 6 scallions, cut into 2-inch pieces and then shredded into thin sticks
- 3 tablespoons torn fresh dill (about a handful)
- In a medium saucepan, heat the broth to a boil, reduce to a simmer.
- While the broth simmers, in a medium bowl, combine the chicken, egg, bread crumbs, nutmeg,paprika, parsley and salt and pepper.

Thanks for posting this Deborah! I made this last night, and my DH and I loved it! I used a can of roasted veg chicken broth with homemade, and garlic marinated roasted peppers because that was what I had on hand and we thought it was a little strong, so I'm sure if I follow the recipe it'll be perfect! I do like that its flexible. Also, I used ground turkey for the dumplings, which were very tender, unlike most poultry meatballs. Thanks again!
This is comfort food! I have not been able to find smoked paprika so I used Hungarian (sweet). I will be making this again and continue my search for the smoked paprika. Made for Alphabet Soup Game. Thanks or posting Deborah!
