Reviews forYummy Chicken and Dumpling Soup
"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."
"Loved this recipe, and the fact that it is low fat makes it a keeper!"
"My husband and I are not a big fan of chicken and Dumpling anything unless it's baked but I figured I'd give this a try. It was good but it's not something I will make it again just because my family likes the biscuits fluffy the way they get when their baked not cooked on the stove. If you are a chicken and Dumpling lover then I highly recommend you to try this out."
"Very good and delicious! I did; however, make my own dumplings and didn't use marjoram. Mine cooked down to thickness of a stew rather than a soup."
"I made this in the crock pot"
