Nutritional Facts

One cup (prepared with egg substitute and reduced-sodium bouillon and without added salt) equals 192 calories, 62 mg sodium, 52 mg cholesterol, 15 g carbohydrate, 19 g protein, 6 g fat. Diabetic Exchanges: 2 lean meat, 1 starch.

Directions

  1. In a 5-qt. soup kettle, combine the first 10 ingredients. Cover and slowly bring to a boil. Reduce heat; simmer for 3 hours. Remove chicken; set aside until cool enough to handle.
  2. Strain broth, discarding vegetables and seasonings. Add enough water to make 8 cups; return to kettle. Remove chicken from bones; discard bones and skin. Cut chicken into chunks; add to kettle along with beans and noodles. Bring to a boil; cook for 20 minutes.
  3. For dumplings, combine the potatoes, egg, cream, sugar and salt if desired in a medium bowl. Gradually add flour to make a stiff dough (it should form a peak when spoon is lifted). Drop by teaspoons into boiling soup. Cover and simmer for 3 minutes. Yield: 12 servings (3 quarts).
