Recipe by Branfletch

This recipe is from a Weight Watchers Cookbook. Use two spoons when dropping your dumplings: one to scoop up the dough the other to push the sticky dough into the soup. Once you add the dumplings, don't allow the soup to come to a boil, or the dumplings will fall apart.

  3. 3. Drop dough by heaping teaspoonfuls into simmering chicken mixture. Cover and cook over low heat 11 minutes (do not let soup boil). YIELD: 6 servings (serving size: about 3/4 cup chicken mixture and 3 dumplings).
