Chicken Soup Recipe

Ingredients
1 tablespoon olive oil
1 medium onion, chopped*
1 large carrot, peeled and chopped*
2 stalks celery, chopped
2 cloves garlic, minced
8 cups chicken broth (2, 32-ounce boxes)
1 cup cooked chicken, chopped or shredded*
1/4 cup fresh Italian (flat leaf) parsley, chopped
1/2 teaspoon dried oregano
Salt and pepper, to taste

*Tip:
Short on time? Substitute 1 cup frozen chopped onion and 1/3 cup frozen carrot slices, or use a bag of your favorite frozen mixed vegetables. Instead of cooking your own chicken, grab a rotisserie chicken from the supermarket.

Make-Ahead Tip: Prepare the soup in advance and reheat when ready to add dumplings. To freeze, cool soup completely to room temperature, then portion into freezer bags and freeze flat on baking sheets. Reheat gently before serving.

Instructions

  1. In a large Dutch oven or heavy saucepan, heat olive oil over medium heat. Add onion, carrot, celery and garlic. Cook over medium heat until just tender, about 5 minutes
  2. Add chicken broth, chicken, parsley and oregano. Bring to a boil, then reduce heat to low and simmer for 20 minutes. Season with salt and pepper

Herbed Dumplings Recipe

Ingredients
1 egg, lightly beaten
1/4 cup milk
1/4 cup mashed potatoes (leftover, purchased or instant)
1 tablespoon fresh Italian (flat leaf) parsley, chopped
1 tablespoon melted butter
1 cup flour
2 teaspoons baking powder
1/2 teaspoon salt

Instructions

  1. Combine egg, milk, mashed potatoes, parsley and melted butter in a medium-sized mixing bowl
  2. In another bowl, whisk together flour, baking powder and salt
  3. Stir dry ingredients into the egg mixture and mix until thoroughly combined. Stir with a silicone spatula or wooden spoon, as a whisk can cause clumping
  4. During the last 10 minutes of simmering the soup, drop 12 spoons full of dumpling batter into the broth. To measure your spoons full, use a 1 1/2-inch cookie scoop or heaping tablespoon
  5. Cover and cook until dumplings are cooked through then serve
