Chicken Soup with Potato Dumplings

Our family calls this comforting, old-fashioned soup our “Sunday dinner soup” because it’s almost a complete dinner in a bowl. You’ll love the flavor!—Marie McConnell, Shelbyville, Illinois

    I was surprised at how good this was, especially since it was quick & easy. The whole family gave it great reviews and there were no leftovers. Will definitely become a regular recipe at our house.

    This soup was simple but good. Next time, however, I'm going to use a potato dumpling recipe that calls for flour instead of bisquick because gluten free bisquick can get really expensive.

    I make this all the time regardless of the season. It is one of our favorites! I like to cut the liquid a little so it becomes more like a thick stew.

    Easy kids like to put the dumplings in. I use my indoor grill to cook the chicken and add some steak season to it for more favor. I need to double the recipe next 6 bowls but I want some leftovers of this one!
