Chicken and Dumpling Soup

Absolutely! Here’s a recipe for Chicken and Dumpling Soup:

Chicken and Dumpling Soup


  • 1 pound boneless, skinless chicken breasts or thighs
  • 6 cups chicken broth
  • 2 carrots, diced
  • 2 celery stalks, diced
  • 1 onion, diced
  • 3 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1 teaspoon dried thyme
  • 1 bay leaf
  • Salt and pepper to taste
  • 1 cup all-purpose flour
  • 2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 cup milk
  • 2 tablespoons butter
  • Chopped fresh parsley for garnish (optional)


  1. Cook the Chicken:
    • In a large pot or Dutch oven, combine the chicken breasts or thighs with chicken broth, diced carrots, celery, onion, minced garlic, dried thyme, bay leaf, salt, and pepper.
    • Bring the mixture to a boil, then reduce the heat and let it simmer for about 20-25 minutes, or until the chicken is cooked through.
  2. Prepare the Dumplings:
    • While the chicken is cooking, prepare the dumplings. In a mixing bowl, combine the flour, baking powder, and salt. Stir in the milk and melted butter until a soft dough forms.
  3. Shred the Chicken:
    • Once the chicken is cooked, remove it from the pot and shred it using two forks. Return the shredded chicken to the pot.
  4. Add Dumplings to Soup:
    • Increase the heat to bring the soup back to a simmer. Drop spoonfuls of the dumpling dough into the simmering soup. Cover and let it simmer for 10 minutes without lifting the lid.
  5. Check Dumplings:
    • After 10 minutes, uncover and check the dumplings. They should be cooked through and slightly puffed.
  6. Serve:
    • Remove the bay leaf. Taste the soup and adjust seasoning if needed.
    • Ladle the Chicken and Dumpling Soup into bowls, garnish with chopped fresh parsley if desired, and serve hot.
