Reviews for Yummy Chicken and Dumpling Soup
"Yum Yum Yum Delicious. I did add one chicken bouillon as the chicken broth I used was very low sodium. Also I did step 2 first and while that was simmering I browned the chicken. I will absolutely make this again and again."
"I made this soup on a cold snowy afternoon and it really hit the spot with both me and my hardworking husband! I doubled the recipe so we'd be sure to have leftovers and I'm really glad that we'll get to have this soup for another meal. I didn't have frozen green beans, so I used a bag of frozen mixed vegetables and that worked great. I also used some baked white meat chicken that I already in the freezer which simplified preparation and shortened the prep time. I did add some extra salt and pepper to the soup along with the marjoram and added some vegetable soup base to punch up the flavor."
"I am a big fan of rotisserie chickens and this is a great way to use any leftover meat. I also like to make broth from the bones which is much more flavorful than canned. I love the addition of cornmeal to the dumplings."
"I used leftover chicken, substituted thyme for marjoram, and added a 1/4 tsp Frankenmuth chicken seasoning. The results were excellent and every bowl was empty! I will definitely make this recipe again."
"I used my own traditional family favorite chicken soup and topped it with the corn cheddar biscuits. Simply amazing! Who would have thought corn and cheddar would make such scrumptious dumplings?"
