Easy Chicken Dumpling Soup



Easy Chicken Dumpling Soup
recipe by: Simply Fit Mama

  • 1 1/2- 2 cups leftover Chicken, shredded, cubed (however you like it)
  • 4 carrots, chopped
  • 4 celery stalks, chopped
  • 1 medium yellow onion, diced
  • 2 cloves of garlic, minced - I use dorot frozen garlic
  • 8 cups chicken broth
  • 1 can Trader Joe's buttermilk biscuits 
  • 2 Tbsp extra-virgin olive oil
  • 1 tsp dried thyme
  • 1 bay leaf
  • 2 tsp chicken bullion
  • Sea salt and cracked pepper, to taste
Heat large pot or dutch oven over medium- high heat. Add olive oil and onions, heat until softened not brown. This takes about 4-5 minutes. Add carrots, celery, garlic and chicken. Stir for another minute or two. Now add the broth, thyme, bay leaf, bullion then cover the pot and let simmer on low for  45 minutes to an hour or until the veggies are tender. 

Now comes the fun part. Pop open the can of biscuits and lay them out on a cutting board. Cut the circles in quarters and then roll each one in little balls (this is great to do with the kids, practice fractions and fine motor skills). Add all the little balls to the pot of soup cover and cook on low-medium (simmering not boiling) for 7-9 minutes.

This sounds so good. It's starting to get chilly here...time for soups like this one. Great recipe. :-)

They're going to miss you at Alta Pass this year. I know you'll find a fun way to celebrate fall there in CA and make all new traditions.

Miss you...
