- To a medium saucepan over med-high heat, add water, chicken bullion, seasonings, and chicken if using. Bring to a gentle boil.
- Meanwhile, Mix all dumpling ingredients to form a thick dough.
- When pot is ready, drop dumplings by heaping teaspoons into simmering liquid. Do in batches, about 6 at a time. Cook, turning occasionally, for 10-15 minutes, or until dough is cooked through. the soup will thicken up to a creamy sauce as the dumplings are simmering. Serve up in a bowl and enjoy immediately.
- NOTE: as the liquid thickens from the batches of dumplings, simply add more water or chicken stock as needed.
