Ready In:




  • SOUP: Heat oil over medium-high heat in a large 8-quart soup pot. Add vegetables and cook until slightly softened, about 5 minutes. Add chicken pieces, water, salt and pepper; bring to a boil.
  • Stir and skim off foam from surface as it boils, 5-10 minutes. Reduce heat to simmer; add 1/4 cup chopped dill and parsnip. Cover and cook for 2-3 hours. The longer it cooks, the thicker it will be.
  • DUMPLINGS: Once soup is cooked, combine all ingredients in medium-size bowl, and stir until until a soft batter forms. Drop batter by teaspoonfuls into simmering soup broth. Simmer for 5 minutes, turn over and continue for another 5 minutes longer. The dumplings will be puffy. Serve immediately.
  • Remove dumplings from leftover soup and store in a separate container in the refrigerator.
